|Materials Used||6 skeins (5 oz) Simply soft Charcoal Heather|
|Measurements||Measurements" 52" around without elastic in waist, 24 1/2" long|
Length can easily be changed by adding more or less rows.
Size can be adapted by using a smaller hook or changing the starting chain count. Your first chain should be a multiple of 10 plus 4.
This skirt is worked as a rectangle and then I sewed up the short ends to make a side seam. I did not sew up the whole side, but you could do it either way. Then I added 1/4" elastic for the waist. I measured my waist and sewed the ends of the elastic together. After the skirt was done, then I single crocheted the elastic on the the waist.
Row 1: Ch 200, sc in 2nd ch from hook, *skip 2 sts, 5 dc in next st, skip 2 st, sc in next st. Repeat from * across. Ch 2, turn.
Row 2: Dc in first sc, sc in center st of 5 dc group from previous row. *In next sc, work 5 dc. Sc in next center st of 5 dc group. Repeat from * . End with 2dc in last sc. Ch 1, turn.
Row 3: Sc in 1st dc, 5dc in next sc. *Sc in center st of 5dc group. Work 5dc in next sc. Repeat from * across. End with sc in top of turning ch. Ch 2, turn.
Rows 4- 59: Repeat Rows 2 and 3 throughout. I stopped at 59, because I ran out of yarn. I'm waiting to get more yarn from Walmart when it gets in. I will add a border and add elastic for the waist.
Weave in ends.
Do the elastic for the waist as per instructions above.
