Christmas tree skirt crochet-along CAL

I have crocheted mine using mainly the traditional Christmas colours of red and green. But you can make one to go with your tree decorations colours or with your home decor in general.

Yarn info

You need altogether 620 metres / 680 yards of DK weight yarn. The sample is in Gjestal Janne, 85% wool, 15% polyamid. It is 100 m per 50 g, or 109 yards per 1,76 ounce ball. But you can use any DK weight yarn, it can also be cotton or acrylic or a mix of fibers.

Amounts of yarn for the tree skirt:

Centre: 110 metres / 120 yards
6 pieces in red lace crochet: 300 metres / 330 yards (altogether for the 6 pieces)
Each colourful piece (I’m giving the amounts per piece in case you want each one to be different colour):
Colour A (red) and Colour B (green): 20 metres / 22 yards
Colour C (white) and Colour D (yellow): 15 metres / 16,5 yards
OR
6 colourful pieces (if you make each of the 6 the same as the sample tree skirt):
Colour A (red) and Colour B (green): 120 metres / 132 yards
Colour C (white) and Colour D (yellow): 90 metres / 99 yards
