Ch 100, sl st tog to form a ring. Be careful not to twist!
Round 1: Ch 2, hdc in same st and then hdc in each st around. Sl st into the first hdc, not the ch 2. This pulls the sts tog and so there isn't a hole. This will be repeat throughout the entire skirt.
Round 2: Ch 2, hdc in same st and then hdc in each st around. Sl st tog.
Round 3-19: Repeat Round 2.
Round 20: Ch 2, hdc in the same st, then hdc in the next 4 sts. 2 hdc in the next st. *Hdc in the next 4 sts, 2 hdc in next st. Repeat from * around. Sl st tog.
Round 21-39: Ch 2, hdc in same st and then hdc in each st around. Sl st tog.
Round 40: Ch 1, sc in next st. Sc in each st around. Sl st tog. Fasten off and weave in all ends.
I use elastic on all my daughter’s clothes. So I take the ¼ inch elastic, measure it to my daughter's waist and cut. Then I sew the one end into a circle. Then I sc the elastic to the first row of the skirt. Fasten off and weave in ends.
I felted this in my washer through 3 hot wash/cold rinse water cycles. It may take more or less depending on your washer.
