Mantel Skirt Edging Thread Crochet ePattern

Project a warm welcome by dressing up many areas of your home decor with crochet. What a better way to express your personal touch than with a thread crochet mantel skirt! This crocheted home accent piece will be the center of attention for many years to come!

A heartfelt welcome is extended to your guests with more than mere words; it's reflected in the personal crochet accents in your decor that are scattered throughout your home. This lovely thread crochet mantel skirt was designed by C. Strohmeyer; it is fashioned with fabric and edged with crochet in a zigzag pattern. It can be customized to fit any size mantel or shelf. Ribbon woven through the eyelet border offers a charming finishing touch.

The edging is crocheted using bedspread weight cotton thread and a size 7 steel hook. The approximate finished design size is 6.5" wide.
