Pleated Crocheted Skirt

I like crocheting wearables.  But making it to the correct size was always a problem for me.  while googling i have found a skirt pattern. It is very simple but very effective.  I have decided to try it out for my 3year old niece.  I was doing this last month and I happened to stay along with my niece.  So I took measurements of her, then my crocheted piece and finally i have made a skirt which fits her properly..  For the waist i have used half inch elastic which I have attached it using single crochets.  I am happy that I have crocheted a wearable.  


I have used 3 balls(each 10 grams= 12 Rupees each) of knitting yarn which I purchased from my local yarn shop.  

you can find the pattern here.  Thanks Kinga for the excellent pattern.

You can view my another skirt here.

In my next post I will come up with a sample piece of Long and short stitch in embroidery.
