Rainbow Ruffle Skirt

rainbow ruffle 1

This skirt is an adaptation of the easy peasy skirt to make it even more awesome and fashionable 🙂

This ridiculously easy skirt pattern uses a 4 mm hook and 8 ply wool and is written in American crochet notation. I designed the pattern for my own size but there are simple instructions for adapting it below.

To make the me-sized version

Skirt

Chain 150, slip stitch in the first chain to form a ring

Rounds 1 – 12: sc in every stitch

Round 13: sc in the first six stitches, increase in the next stitch – repeat

Rounds 14 – 25: sc in every stitch

Round 26: sc in the first six stitches, increase in the next stitch – repeat

Rounds 27 – 38: sc in every stitch

Round 39: sc in the first six stitches, increase in the next stitch – repeat

Rounds 40 – 50: sc in every stitch

Fasten off, weave in end.

Waistband

Cut a length of elastic to fit your waist. Sew the two ends together to form a ring. Fold the first few rows of the skirt down over the elastic and with a tapestry needle sew into place to form the waistband.

Ruffles

Attach your first colour six rows from the waistband

Round 1: increase in every stitch

Round 2: increase in the first stitch, sc in the next stitch – repeat

Round 3: sc in every stitch

Fasten off, weave in end.

Attach the next colour six rows down the skirt and repeat the instructions above. Continue until you have six ruffles.

It will be easy to keep your ruffles in a straight line if, when you are crocheting the first round directly onto the skirt, you fold along the row so that you can follow the line of your fold.

When crocheting the ruffles, hold the skirt with the hem up (away from you) so that the ruffles aren’t upside down.

Adapting the pattern

To adapt this pattern for your size, make a chain ring that is large enough to slide over your hips easily, then just follow the pattern (12 sc rounds, then 1 increase round, then 12 sc rounds etc) until the skirt is long enough.

For the ruffles, if your skirt is 50 rounds long you can follow the ruffle instructions as above, otherwise just consider the length of the skirt and what would be an even spacing for the ruffles.
