Cluster Crochet Skirt

Black_Crochet_Skirt_Pattern

It’s been a while since I picked up a crochet hook.  Seeing way cute white crochet skirts on some young sisters from my congregation prompted me to get started on this one.  Plus, over the last several days I have been wearing the heck out of my black Brussels skirt.  Oh, I had a nice, long, knit skirt that I have been wearing since the 80’s.  Like a Timex watch my black knit skirt has taken a licking and kept on ticking.  I am about to put it out of its misery.

I tried to stretch the piece so you could see the pattern.  So pretty, so feminine. Remember my thrift store finds the other day?  Well, I didn’t tell you that the skeins above were included.  After working about eight rows of this skirt I had used up a whole skein.  I knew I would need more.  Remembering that I had not purchased all the skeins there off I went.  Lo and behold there were about four or five more skeins, YAY!  Hopefully I have enough to complete this pretty skirt.  It is crochet cotton and should be easy to find in case there is not enough in my stash.  Perhaps if I get an outdoor shot I can get a better photo of the pattern in this skirt.  I am going to line it for strength, durability, and modesty.  If I can somehow trick my mind into not minding the repetitive nature of the pattern I can see more of these babies in the future in pastel colours like coral.

Stay tuned for the Lyrically styled completed skirt!

Cheers,
