I think cables can make anything look classy. You can find them on a wide array of products. If you are looking for a holiday project that will last for years to come, look at making a tree skirt.
There are many different styles and sizes to choose from. My favourite is the cable knit tree skirt. Not only does it look classy, but most patterns will fit in well with any type of decor.
9 Cable Knit Tree Skirt Patterns to make before the holidays
Below are 9 cable knit tree skirt patterns. I have included both free knitting patterns and paid patterns. Some skirts are knit in the round, and others are knit on straight needles.
1. Cable Knit Christmas Tree Skirt by JuliettePecautDesign
Create an elegant and cosy atmosphere with this classy tree skirt. It has a simple cabled motif that draws the eye. The skirt works up quickly using chunky wool. Use a muted colour for a minimalistic vibe, or make it with a bright fun colour.
This cable knit tree skirt is knit flat in wedges. After all the wedges are made, they are seamed to create the skirt. An i-cord bind off is used to create neat edges. You will need to know cables, mattress stitch, I-cord bind off, and picking up stitches.
2. Cable Knit Christmas Tree Skirt by Ann V. Gallentine
If you are searching for a cable knit tree skirt pattern that is not knit in the round, this one is for you. The skirt is made up of 7 sections that are sewed together. It is a simple and quick knitting project.
Each section of the skirt has cables running along each side. The tree skirt can be made larger or smaller by either increasing or decreasing the number of rows.
