Lady Mary Skirt
A fairly ordinary crochet lace skirt becomes extraordinary with the addition of a flirty, beaded swag trim. Pencil slim, with a shaped hip and drawstring waistband, the crochet skirt body hits just above the knee, with the trim cascading to below the knee.
Hook Size: G/6 (4 mm). Size .9 mm fine steel crochet hook or bead crochet hook for beading. Adjust hook size if necessary to obtain correct gauge.
Notions: 636 (666, 696, 726, 756, 786, 816, 846) size 6/0 round seed or E beads for swag trim plus 90-120 for optional beaded drawstring (sample shown using Miyuki Japanese seed beads, 6/0 round, light teal lined crystal, 20 gm per tube, 4 tubes), beads must have holes large enough to accommodate steel hook; st markers (m); yarn needle.
Gauge: 8 patt reps = 4”; 8 rnds = 3” in skirt st patt, after blocking.
