Pattern Notes:

This tree skirt is worked in the round starting from the center and working outward. There is no slit to make wrapping it around the tree easy. You must put the stem of the tree into the hole in the center at the time of putting up your tree. The amount of yarn you will need is dependent upon how big you need to make your tree skirt. I used 5 skeins of yarn, three of which were the dominant color and two were the accent colors.
