Crochet Toddler Skirt

You will see here my version of the Olivia Skirt.  I found this free pattern on Ravelry by Janelle Khawly, Cageofwords raveler and really liked how the front post crochet gives it great texture.

I made this in a size 3T and it is about 13″ long which will allow for some growing room.  I had 2 skeins of Spud and Chloe sweater weight yarn and 1 skein of their fine yarn.  I used the sweater weight for the skirt (size G hook) and the finer yarn for the ruffle and the contrasting single crochet casing for the waistband.

I completed three double crochet rows to create the ruffled edge along bottom.  Crocheting 4 DC into each stitch for the entire first row, 3 DC into each stitch for second row, and 2 DC into each stitch for third row.

I inserted a 1″ non-roll elastic into the waistband casing so it would be easier to pull on and off.  It is very bright and cheery and I think will look really cute with tights and/or leggings.

HAPPY CREATING!!
