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.


  1. The skirt is so adorable! i'm sure it'll look so cute on your niece :)

  2. Your niece is happy to have such a beautiful skirt tailor made by her aunt, and you must feel very proud of the outcome. Well done!
    I am looking forward to your next embroidery project.

  3. It looks perfect and so cute!!! well done!! :-)
    it looks quite big for three 10gm balls of yarn, or maybe the pics makes it feel big. is it cotton yarn ??

  4. This is perfect and such neat work!! I'm surely making this for my niece!


I would like to hear from you as it boosts me up a lot.
