My ruffle sun skirt Etro is ready. Here it is...

This skirt is a lot of fun!






Inspiration:

Previous post here.
#10 black thread, 380 g (13 3/8 oz), hook 2 mm.
It took a week to make, couple weeks to shoot pictures.
Easy project.
I have a flower print skirt, which I tried to wear underneath and didn't like it.

That pink ruffle skirt was just right for me.

May be I'll buy or make white under-skirt , let's see.
Here is 21 of them on Ravelry.

  1. Наташа, поздравляю! Удачный проект! Юбочка смотрится на тебе прекрасно, и хорошо, что снизу розовая. Белый подъюбник, на мой взгляд, это массовый вариант, хотя менять их можно по настроению)))

  5. Can I ask you the thread you used in your skirt? I am halfway through mine and my thread is driving me nuts.

    1. Leannelinda, I used cotton #10 and hook 3 mm. I am 168 cm, so it turned out the same length as the original. If you are shorter, you probably can use hook 2 mm or skip some rows. Good luck!
      And I have to say, in row 37 rapport is 33 stitches, then in row 38 rapport becomes 25 stitches. I started as it says in the chart and didn't like it (that sudden decreasing is weird). So I've decided not to risk and changed the chart leaving the same number of stitches.

  6. I probably should have asked this sooner (like BEFORE I started!), but I haven't crocheted since my nana showed me how to chain and treble(double crochet)nearly 30 years ago! I think I made a mistake trying to understand the instructions, in fact I am sure I did. I used a translating keypad to try and translate the chart and I believe I did a booboo! My skirt is also in #10 and I was using a 2mm hook, but it seems way shorter. Was I meant to wrap the thread 2 or 3 times? I am the same height as you so I know mine will be slightly shorter. I had to do a lot of creative thinking to lengthen the skirt. I am on the home straight now with only 10 rows left to go until I finish!!!

    1. Shoot! I am so sorry. First 4 rows are double crochet, then it's treble crochet all the rest. You probably did it differently. Thread is 1 ply, it's correct. You probably did it all double crochet. I am sorry again. On the bright side you skirt will be unique!
