Topaz Skirt has just a touch of flirty flare! It’s perfect for both girls and women because the pattern repeats can be made to fit any and all waist and rear sizes! It will work on a no-curve body just as well as on a very curvy figure! The pattern directions for children’s sizes and women’s sizes are written separately for ease in following, but they are both within the same document. The skirt is worked side to side (top to bottom) in one piece, seamed together, and then crocheted in rounds around the top and bottom edges. One of the great features of this skirt is that the tie is attached to the skirt at the back and woven through the top band to meet and tie in the front. It is not a separate piece, so it will never be lost.

Estimated Yardage:

  • 12-18mos: 220 yds,
  • 2/3: 250 yds,
  • 4/5: 290 yds,
  • 6/6X: 340 yds,
  • 7/8: 390 yds,
  • 10/12: 450 yds

Women’s sizes:

  • Petite: 16 yds per 2-row repeat

  • Regular: 17 yds per 2-row repeat

  • Tall: 18 yds per 2-row repeat

  • Extra Tall: 19 yds per 2-row repeat

  • Estimate yardage for women’s sizes by determining waist circumference and multiplying by 1.5 (round to the nearest even number). Multiply that number by the estimated yardage per 2-row repeat (see above).

    Err on the side of caution when purchasing your yarn since the estimates above depend on hook used and achieving gauge.

Materials Needed:

  • Any Worsted Weight Yarn (24/7 Cotton by Lion Brand used in sample)
  • 5.50mm (I) hook (or size needed to achieve gauge)
  • Yarn needle for weaving in ends
  • 3 stitch markers
