The Bloomers Skirtie was originally created as a skirt to go over my Bloomers pattern. I liked the very full skirt with the ruffled legs of the Bloomers peaking out at the bottom. So cute and girlie!

This pattern includes only the skirt. It can be knitted onto DaisyHead Bloomers or any other soaker pattern. The pattern includes only one size, but is easily adaptable~ it begins with picking up stitches around your soaker’s waistband, and then you can modify the length as you go. The fullness of the skirt is worked by changing needle size (no increasing). It’s not necessary to use all the needle sizes listed, but the needle sizes are what give the gradual increase in fullness.

Let your creativity run wild and deck your little girl out in style!

This skirtie does not have to be part of a soaker. It can also be worked in another fiber as a skirt with an underskirtie or simply work a ribbed waistband for a simple skirt.
