Who doesn’t love summer fashion? It’s all about skirts, bright colors and having fun with what you wear!
I made this skirt for my daughter who is 7… but I think I might have to make one for myself! The pattern can easily be adjusted for any size. Simply change the starting chain number, then the length and ba-da-bing! You have a ruffled skirt in a different size.
This pattern is available as an inexpensive, clearly formatted, PDF instant download HERE in my Etsy shop.
1 skein each of Lily’s Sugar ‘n Cream in Yellow (Color A), Goldrenrod(Color B), and Tangerine (Color C) (360 yards total)
5 mm hook
Pattern notes & stitches to know
Sl st – slip stitch
Ch – chain
Sc – single crochet
Dc – double crochet
Finished skirt measures approximately 22 inches around the waist and 24 inches long.
Starting in Color A
Ch 65 (starting chain can be a different length—needs to be a multiple of 4 + 1)
Row 1: sc in 2nd chain from hook and sc in each st across, join to the top of first sc with a sl st to form a loop (64 sc)
NOTE: I like to crochet my first row and then join to form a loop, otherwise I always twist the chain. Never fails. 😉 Use the beginning tail to sew the hole closed
Round 2: ch 1, *sc in 4 stitches, ch 1, skip one stitch* repeat from * to * around, join to top of first sc with a sl st (48 sc, 16 ch spaces)
Round 3: ch 1, sc in each stitch and ch space around, join to top of first sc with sl st (64 sc)
Round 4 – 8: ch 3, dc in each stitch around, join to top of first dc with a sl st (64 dc)
Change to Color B
Round 9 – 13: ch 3, dc in each stitch around, join to top of first dc with a sl st (64 dc)
Change to Color C
Round 14 – 18: ch 3, dc in each stitch around, join to top of first dc with a sl st (64 dc)
Fasten off, weave in all the ends
Next you’ll work the ruffles on top of the stripes of the skirt.
Join Color A to the beginning of row 4. Join on the top between the row 3 and 4.
Follow this pattern for each ruffle, using the matching color for each stripe.
