This Christmas Tree Skirt Knitting Pattern is stunning under any tree, live or artificial. The simple lines combined with the beautiful yarn, allow your knitting to really shine.

3. Scandi Knit Christmas Tree Skirt Pattern by Angela Turner Designs

This knit tree skirt pattern knits up a modern Scandi style skirt that sits neatly under the tree at Christmas time! I love the simple design of this Christmas tree skirt. It is simple to knit, each section being knitted separately then sewn together. The gnomes are Swiss darned on each section, and are finished off with a natural wooden bead nose! The skirt opens and closes neatly with 5 buttons and is lined with white felt.
