This project was started in December as a Variegated top, then I came across another 3 balls of Ella yarn and made this longer version. Surely 6 balls of Ella yarn (954 m or 1043 yards) would not be enough for this dress, so many different grey yarns were mixed together:
I have undone all rows of my top up to armholes and crocheted this dress with fewer increases towards the bottom. I haven’t described the process from the armholes to bottom here (was busy mixing light and dark grey colours :)), so there will be no row-by-row dress pattern. I could write some suggestions for turning the Pliability – variegated top into such a dress, but it will be more like a recipe from armholes to bottom.
This maxi skirt comes with panels of standout flower motifs worked on the crochet loom. The hip-hugging style widens from knees for comfortable walking and falls to a flattering maxi length for dramatic effect. The skirt looks great with a top tank, jacket, swimming suit (without slip skirt). It even can be worn as a strapless dress – just lift it over your bust, the skirt has an elastic waistband. Alternating panels of flower and square motifs will surely add visual interest to your holiday look.
Detailed PATTERN in English for this crochet skirt for sizes XS, S, M, L, XL is available here:
You will receive:
► detailed instructions in English;
► HQ diagrams;
► written explanation of all rows of the diagrams is included (in case you are not used to work with the crochet charts).
The centre of the original round motif is worked on the crochet loom; I have included suggestions for 3 variants of round motifs in case you do not have loom (though the crocheted centre will look different!).
