Household patterns designed by Tracie Barrett
Ave Maria Tree Skirt
This is an experienced pattern. It uses bead and thread and math. Listed in the pattern is the yardage for each piece of the design. You select how many motifs you need and go from there.
It’s a very striking design and will look incredible in any color combination. It can easily become a table cloth by simply joining on the last side.
An heirloom piece, the Ave Maria Tree Skirt is designed with a simple border that won’t bother a crocheter to pull out to add another round of motifs to the skirt.
Please note, I used a Boye Steel hook size 0 / 3.25mm on this pattern. However, you should be able to use a size D aluminum hook and achieve a similar gauge.
