We have a silent auction in September at my church.
I'd like to crochet a Christmas tree skirt, if I can find a pattern that looks up to date. I don't want the red, white, green yarns used in traditional ways.
Prefer it to not be granny square.
Guess I'm looking for some new wave crochet patterns. Can you point me in the right direction?

Thanks Maria, but I didnt' find anything in those links. I'm looking for something totally different. Not traditional or country looking.

By studying how to construct a tree skirt with the patterns available, you will have the perfect opportunity to design your own pattern. You must have an idea of what you want. Start with  the colors you like, then a stitch and go from there. Sketch it out on a piece of paper. How non-traditional do you want it? Is your church that avant-garde?  Most people do like the traditional colors. I thought the one that was beige with poinsettias was a little different.How about using a very fancy yarn and let that do the all the talking? Crochet with sequins or make a design with colorwork. Use a lacy stitch on top and back it with a solid color to bring out the beauty. What I'm saying is use this as an opportunity to stretch your creativity and come up with something that is all your own. You can do it if you put your mind to it. Good luck!
