This crochet plaid tree skirt was something I wanted to design last year, but I couldn’t quite figure it out. How do you make a circle out of squares? Then the idea of making an octagon shape came to me randomly and it worked beautifully (Once I figured out the angles!). Since this crochet plaid tree skirt is a rather large project (in my opinion) I figured a big, chunky yarn would make it easier to make.
Big chunky yarn makes this project work up faster that I thought. As I was working, I couldn’t help but think it would be the perfect yarn for a plaid blanket! It’s thick, it’s squishy and it works up a whopping one inch per row. If you want a thick and soft crochet plaid blanket (and you don’t want to work on it for a month).
And I did it! The blanket pattern is here. It’s FREE!
