This crochet skirt is made with linked double treble stitches worked with hook-insertion variations that show on both sides to create a fabric that defies immediate identification. Is this skirt woven? Crocheted? Adapt the stylish slit to your comfort level for a crochet skirt you’ll wear again and again.
