  4. Квадратный фрагмент мне гораздо больше нравится, чем в оригинале. Удачи в дальнейшей работе!
    Наташа, а какие номер крючка и метраж пряжи?

    1. Hi Natalia,

      I love this skirt!

      Did you start at the waist and work down?

      The skirt in the original photo is fairly flat on the top but has a very pleasing fullness towards the bottom. Especially love the bottom edging!What is your general rule of thumb for increasing?

    2. Yes, I did, though my skirt turned out not so full at the bottom as I would like it to be. Anyway it turned out I am not a fan of long skirts, so I don't wear it much. Here is some patterns: http://outstandingcrochet.blogspot.com/2012/01/stone-maxi-skirt-pattern.html
      and my skirt: http://outstandingcrochet.blogspot.com/2011/07/fabulous-crochet-stone-maxi-skirt-done.html
      In this skirt you just make every layer (5 total) wider.
