Rainy Day Skirt-FREE PATTERN

Rainy Day Skirt

DK To Light Worsted yarn of your choice
For the length of skirt I did 72 chains. I like shirts to sit higher up above my natural waist. Since I am a more robust lady…;)

Row 1: HDC in 2nd ch from hook and each chain across, turn (to make a neater seam you should hdc in back bar of the chain
Row 2: slst in the back loop only in each hdc across
Row 3-4: slst in the back loop only in each slst across
Row 5: HDC through both loops in each stitch across

Continue Row 2-5 until piece goes completely around your waist. Ending with a Row 4.
Assembly: now turn so the right side of the skirt is facing out. Slst through loop closest to you on the front side of the seam, and farthest from you on the other side of the seam. This should create a almost invisible seam.

Edging: sc along the bottom edge of the skirt evenly.
Row 2 Edging: sc in first st, 2 sc in next sc around to end
Row 3 Edging: ch 3. Dc in next sc, *ch 1, dc in next sc. Repeat from * around to end. Fasten off.

If your like me, you will also want to make a belt to tie the top of the skirt. So chain enough to go around your waist, and then add about 30 more chains so you can tie it.
That’s it, you’re done. Now wasn’t that easy? :D

So I have three new patterns coming up

I have been working feverishly on about ummm five patterns, two of which are other peoples patterns and three of them which will be coming up here as soon as I finish them. So look out for a mesh bag, and two sweaters, one size 24 months, the other a size two.

I know I know....I'm always working on atleast three or four things at the same time. My mother asks me why I do it to myself...but I can't help it. When I think of something I MUST create I must form it into fabric before the idea leaves my head and I miss out on what might have been a crochet masterpiece....LOL

So I am nearly done all of these projects and will post them as soon as I have taken the photos. The patterns may be for sale. I'm sorry to those that don't wish to pay for a pattern, but my maternity has run out so I need the little added revenue this brings until I find work.

Thanks and keep an eye out for the new projects.....
