Why Mermaid? ‍♀️ Because almost half of these rows are worked with stitches that are easy to remember and that resemble pieces of fish scale!

This vibrant style will seamlessly slot into any wardrobe - you can make a skirt for wearing at the beach or an elegant maxi skirt that it’s equally suited to events as it is to everyday wear.

This floor-length skirt consists of 116 rows and combines several sections:

  • a “relief section” where you will crochet 50 rows without increases with stitches that are easy to remember;
  • rows where you will count double crochet stitches;
  • a few “challenging rows” with textured stitches.

Yarn: Fingering-weight / 4 ply / 350-420 m in 100 gr = 380-460 yards in 3.5 oz / category by is 1 : Superfine. Eg.: Scheepjes whirl, Noro Taiyo Sock, Mondial-primavera, Lion brand Ombre life, King cole bamboo cotton 4ply etc.

2 cakes of Scheepjes-Whirl are sufficient for sizes M-2XL.

Available sizes and yarn needed for the length 110 cm = 43’’ (omit last rows for a shorter skirt):
