|Materials Used||4 skeins (approx. I forgot to keep track) Ping Pong yarn hot pink|
Ch 80, sl st tog. Be careful not to twist chain.
Round 1: Ch 2, hdc in every stitch around, sl st tog.
Round 2 – 14: Repeat Round 1.
Now comes the hard part for me to explain…
Bottom edging Round 15: Ch 3, dc 4 times in same st, skip next st, sc in following st. *Skip next st, 5dc in next st. Repeat from * around, sl st tog.
Round 16: Sl st to middle of 5dc, which would be the 3rd dc, sc. *Skip to the sc of the previous row, do 5dc in that sc. Sc in the middle of the 5dc. Repeat from *, sl st tog.
Round 17 – Row 20: Repeat Round 16. You may repeat to make skirt longer if needed.
(Basically you are doing a shell stitch, then doing shells in the sc and sc in the top of the shells.)
Round 21: I did a sc around the whole bottom of skirt.
I use elastic on all my daughter’s clothes. So I take the ¼ inch elastic, measure it to my daughter and cut. Then I sew the one end into a circle. Then I sc the elastic to the first row of hdc of the skirt. Fasten off and weave in ends.
