Old Fashioned Tree Skirt

(click here for abbreviations)

materials:

size "I" hook
3 - 12 oz. skeins of Holly & Ivy

notes:

the ends of the piece will overlap. the piece will not lay flat - this is to create a ruffle
do not join the rounds, turns as if they were afghan rows
after Rnd 6, stitches change from half double crochet to double crochet. this is not a mistake

special instructions:

post double crochet - yarn over, insert hook before double crochet in previous row, bring hook up on other side of stitch post, yarn over, draw up a loop, (yarn over, draw through 2 loops) twice
post single crochet - yarn over, insert hook before double crochet in previous row, bring hook up on other side of stitch post, yarn over, draw up a loop, yarn over, draw through 2 loops
