A colourful fun skirt with an elasticised waist, suited to an adventurous intermediate to advanced crocheter.
PDFs are available in both ENGLISH UK terms (which includes a UK-US conversion chart) and DUTCH.

Pattern is one PDF download that describes both MINI skirt with hair-pin fringe and a MAXI skirt with a sold hemline trim. PLEASE NOTE: The original pattern published in Simply Crochet magazine is only the MINI skirt - this self-published version describes both MINI and MAXI skirts.

The Mini skirt uses Whirlette, while the Maxi skirt combines Scheepjes Whirl and Whirlette and you can read all the details here:

(Each size’s skirt waist circumference is described as laid flat before adding the elastic and the fabric is stretchy around the waist. This is adjusted to your waist circumference by the elastic where required)

To fit: “Small” waist circumference 63.5-67.5cm (25-26.6in)
actual skirt before elastic: 68.8cm (27.1in)
To fit: “Medium” waist circumference 71-76cm (28-30in)
actual skirt before elastic: 78cm (30.7in)
To fit: “Large” waist circumference 81.5-86.5cm (32-34in)
actual skirt before elastic: 86cm (33.9in)
To fit: “X-Large” waist circumference 91.5-96.5cm (36-38in)
actual skirt before elastic: 93.6cm (36.9in)
To fit: “2X-Large” waist circumference 101.5-106.5cm (40-42in)
actual skirt before elastic: 98cm (27.1in)

Scheepjes Whirlette (60% Cotton, 40% Acrylic; 100g/455m)

Yarn A x 1 (1: 1: 2: 2) balls of Banana (858)
Yarn B x 1 (1: 2: 2: 2) balls of Ice (860)
Yarn C x 1 (1: 1: 1: 1) balls of Rose (859)
Yarn D x 1 (1: 1: 1: 1) balls of Citrus (864)
Yarn E x 1 (1: 1: 1: 1) balls of Bubble (866)
(This includes Yarn E to swatch for gauge. Medium sample totals: 75g A, 98g B, 25g C, 20g D, 17g E).

Combines Scheepjes Whirl (60% Cotton, 40% Acrylic; 215g/1000m) and Whirlette (60% Cotton, 40% Acrylic; 100g/455m)

Yarn A* x 1 (2: 2: 2: 2) balls of Whirl Brambleberry (783)
Yarn B* x 2 (2: 3: 4: 4) balls of Whirlette Luscious (869)
Yarn C x 1 (1: 1: 1: 2) balls of Whirlette Liquorice (851)
(This includes enough Yarn B to swatch for gauge. Small sample totals: 190g A, 135g B, 55g C)
Size Small uses approx. 90% of the 1 Whirl Cake with very little leftovers. Sizes M (L: XL: 2XL) will use approx. 10% (30%: 55%: 70%) of the 2nd Whirl cake so:
• For Size Medium, you may prefer to use Yarn B for Arrowhead Strip and Yarn C for Solid Hemline instead of Yarn A for these sections to get away with using 1 Whirl cake instead of 2. This is not possible for Size Large as you would likely run out of Whirl just before completing the Fill-in Triangles. To help you decide which colours to use at lower skirt, the Arrowhead Strip uses approx. 15-30g of each colour, and the solid hemline uses approx. 20-45g of the chosen colour (variance described is across sizes Small- 2XLarge).
• I recommend using all of first Whirl cake, then continue from same colour point of second Whirl cake to finish the skirt.

3.25mm (US D/3) crochet hook (for Sizes M, XL)
3.5mm (US E/4) crochet hook (for Sizes S, L, 2XL)

Other Materials
4mm wide elastic x 1.1 (3.3)m for MINI-Skirt (MAXI-Skirt): allowance is for XXL waist circumference.
Note: The MINI-Skirt waist band uses 1 ring of elastic; the MAXI skirt uses 3 rings of equal circumference cut to suit your waistline. This 4mm width of elastic is critical to match the height of crochet stitches used to cover the elastic.
