For the stitches, you'll use: Chain, slip stitch, single crochet, double crochet and then front and back post single crochet. Don't be intimidated by the front and back post--it's easy!
Now, how in the world do you use the basic stitches and come up with a ruffle skirt? Layers my friend. Layers.
By utilizing the front and back loops of the stitch, you can go back and work on top of the stitches to add layers.
This skirt works up as follows: brim, base skirt, and then ruffles added in layers to finish. Sounds easy right? You should try it! You can get your pattern here from our website pattern store, Etsy or Ravelry.
Now, this was designed primarily as a photography prop. I used Red Heart Super Saver yarn to create it so it is a little heavier, and not meant for personal use....HOWEVER, you could use a lighter yarn, as long as you match the gauge, to create a light weight version that could be worn.
I think that you'll find these final product photos from the Pettiskirt Pattern just adorable!
