|Skirt Flares at Bottom|
This skirt design is in my book, Crochet That Fits (voted "Best Crochet Pattern Book of 2008"). It may look a little complicated but is very easy and has NO increases or decreases. Every pattern in this book is worked with my Graduated Stitch Method of crocheting shaped garments and accessories without incs or decs. This skirt can be made to custom fit all sizes!

The skirt has a beautiful scalloped edging at the hemline. Everyone who has made this skirt and posted their photo on Ravelry and linked to me as the designer has said this skirt pattern was fun, quick and easy to make!
It's also been suggested this skirt would be a great swim suit cover - up! Even though I used Sinfonia, sport wt, mercerized cotton yarn, you need to keep in mind that cotton yarn can be heavy, so if you're making one of the larger sizes, it may end up touching the floor. If you do decide to use a cotton yarn, you will probably want to make the skirt a little shorter than what the pattern says, since it will most likely stretch. I give instructions in the book on how to shorten the skirt. Sinfonia yarn comes in 89 amazing colors! You can find it at my friend Mona's website, Creative Yarn Source. Hobby Lobby carries this yarn too, but they have only 5-6 colors.
This book, Crochet That Fits, has 33 patterns of garments and accessories, and you can purchase it on Amazon or on Krause Publications website for around $15.00. Barnes and Noble and other book stores sell it for retail at $22.95.
