Little Crochet Skirt

After a quick visit to Spotlight for some fabric, I made a skirt for my little monkey. I found the pattern in Octobre and it is the first pattern I have used from this magazine. After deciphering the pattern from a puzzle of about fifty others, I found it very simple to make.

However I felt it needed something a little extra. So after some browsing in this book I was able to develop a plan. This book has great instructions on how to crochet onto fabric and I found them easy to follow. I did a chain stitch along the edge of the hem and then used that to crochet onto. Simple. I used # 22 pattern for this skirt.

Here is the finished product and little monkey is happy with her new skirt.

I think this would also look great on a white skirt with white crochet on the edge.
