O Knitmas Tree (skirt), O Knitmas Tree (skirt),
How lovely are thy cables!

The Tannenbaum Tree Skirt is the perfect finishing touch for your cozy holiday décor. The small size is perfect for covering your Christmas tree stand. Worked in squishy garter stitch, and lushly covered in complex tree-shaped cables, this tree skirt would look at home in both the most elegant chalet and the coziest log cabin. Worked with almost no finishing, and knit in super-bulky yarn, this piece is a surprisingly quick, simple knit, and the results are totally eye-catching. In off-white, deep red or forest green, the Tannenbaum Tree Skirt is sure to become a timeless heirloom.

The Tannenbaum Tree Skirt is knit in a single piece, and worked flat. The skirt is cast on from the outside (circumference) edge, and worked inward. The octagonal shape is created with decreases arranged along the edges of each triangular panel.
