Have you seen the latest Crochet today?
If you have then you have seen my cute little plaid skirt I did a while ago. I had quite the time coming up with a plaid pattern that I liked. I finally made my architect pick out his favorite, and never looked back.
This cutie is quite easy made with a mix of extended single crochet and regular single crochet in the round. The vertical stripes are made by crocheting slip stitches on top of the fabric once you have finished. The yarn is red heart sport, which you may turn your nose up at, but hey- its a skirt. You can do a lot of wear from normal sitting and walking, so why not use acrylic that you can toss in the wash and can take a beating. But to get it to hang, you have to steam it. But once you do, you will be so rewarded!
I am also so excited, b.c check out the styling of the skirt. Hee, hee- Yeah! For once I got it right, and Suzie Q is very proud to have styled the skirt so well.
