Crochet hooks in sizes US F/5 and G/6 (3.75 and 4 mm) or size to obtain gauge.

1 rep in Main Lace patt using larger hook = 3” wide after blocking. Take time to save time, check your gauge. Note: To check gauge work a swatch back and forth in rows in the Swatch Lace pattern.

The skirt is worked in one piece from the waist down in rounds, turning work after each round unless otherwise

Skirt can easily be shortened by working fewer rows or lengthened by working more rows or by using a larger hook before working the border.

When considering length of skirt, keep in mind that the weight of the skirt will make it longer by as much as 1–3” when worn (i.e., a 34” long skirt when measured on a flat surface may actually be 35–37” long when worn).
