Spring Petals Tree Skirt and Mandala - Crochet Patterns
Crochet this mandala tree skirt to surround the base of your twig tree with the colours of spring.
Many of us love decorating twig trees throughout the year, and this tree skirt allows you to further complement your ornaments with a burst of seasonal colour for spring.
I chose colours and motifs to suggest the blackthorn and cherry blossom, daffodils and primroses that delight us in the spring, and it looks perfect with a few crocheted eggs (see my other crochet patterns) in matching colours hanging from the tree.
The 45cm (18inch) circular tree skirt has a split which allows you to place it around the 'trunk' of your tree and also makes it possible to arrange the skirt smoothly whether it is relatively flat or more of a cone shape covering something like a pot.
The pattern also includes a matching 20cm (8inch) mandala which is perfect under a vase or plate to complete the look.
Important features of my crochet patterns: My crochet patterns include both a detailed 'tutorial-style' set of instructions with colour photos, and a succinct unillustrated pattern using standard crochet conventions - the best of both worlds!
All my patterns come with my full support. If you have any difficulties at all when working the pattern, please e-mail me and I will be happy to provide further explanations.

Little Conkers exists to help you get the most from your time and pennies - whether you're making something for yourself or as a gift - as a way of spreading the joy of creativity.
I know that, for many people, creativity is often fitted into the slivers of time that you can find between all the other "must dos" in your life. But you know that making something yourself means it can be exactly what you need, look exactly how you want and can give you untold pleasure day after day.
My sewing and crochet patterns are specifically designed with the time-strapped and frugal in mind, requiring no superfluous equipment and including practical suggestions on how to up-cycle materials wherever possible.
I am a real person, and always love to hear from my customers all around the world. All my patterns come with my full e-mail support, so do feel free to ask any questions you may have. Enjoy your creating!
