Who doesn’t love summer fashion? It’s all about skirts, bright colors and having fun with what you wear! That’s exactly what this Ruffled Crochet Skirt Pattern delivers!
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.

· The first row is a foundation row, then joined to make a circle. The remainder of the pattern is worked in joined rounds.
· Coral = Color A, Tart Orange = Color B, Rosey II = Color C
· Refer to chart for color changes for each size

2/4, 6/8, 10/12 – The pattern is written in these sizes consecutively. Example, when the pattern gives the end of row count (92, 100, 104 sc) the 92 is for 2/4, 100 is 6/8, 104 is 10/12
This skirt is loose fit with more positive ease.
