Cosmopolitan Skirt

Crochet
May 2013
DK / 8 ply (11 wpi) ?
16 stitches = 4 inches in Foundation Single Crochet
4.0 mm (G)
1900 yards (1737 m)
S (M, L, XL)

With inspiration drawn from vintage thread crochet doilies, this skirt turns what could be considered fussy and demure into a bold fashion statement. Traditional doily elements such as filet mesh, shells and pineapples are given a fresh twist by exploding the lace using sport weight yarn and a relaxed gauge. The skirt is completely seamless and has a modified circular shape. It is slim fitting through high hip, then flared to a generous full hip and spectacular hem that sweeps in soft waves at lower calf-length. The drawstring waistband has plenty of stretch to pull on and allows for an adjustable fit.
