Steps to make an easy crochet skirt

Above, sophomore Myra Stineman models her handmade skirt.

If you know me well, you know I crochet a lot. Recently I’ve been getting into crocheting clothing, taking a break from stuffed animals. This is one I completed so far and it’s an extremely easy skirt. Using only basic stitches, this is guaranteed to make you feel adorable. Let’s crochet!


5 mm hook

4 mm hook

Weight 4 yarn (I used a skein and a half  of Red Heart Super Saver in the color Claret)

Yarn needle


Measuring tape

Safety pins


Ch = Chain

Dc = Double crochet

Dc inc = Double crochet increase

Dc blo = Double crochet in back loop only

Ss = Slip stitch


Waistband (4 mm hook)

Row 1: Ch a length that is how tall you want your waistband to be. I chained 10. Add an extra three chains and dc in 4 ch from hook. Dc in every stitch across. Ch 3, turn.

Row 2: Dc in blo in each stitch across. Ch 3, turn.

Repeat row 2 until the waistband fits around your waist/hips snugly. I crocheted 44 rows for my waist. (Tip: I safety pinned the ends of the waistband together as I crocheted it to try on the waistband as it stretches slightly.) 

Sc or sew the ends together. Fasten off. Weave in ends.

Skirt (5 mm hook)

Row 1: Making sure the sc seam of the waistband is on the inside, ss the yarn into the row beside the seam. Ch 3 and dc twice into the row. Continue to dc three times into each row. Join to the ch 3 with a ss.

Row 2: Ch 3. Dc in the same stitch as the ch. Dc in the next 2 stitches. Continue to dc inc, 2 dc all around. Join to the ch 3 with a ss.

Row 3: Ch 3, dc in every stitch around, join with ss in ch 3. Repeat row 3 until your preferred length is reached. Fasten off and weave in ends.

You’re done!
