Basic Skills Necessary:

  • Skill Level: EASY This is a project created using basic stitches, simple colour changes and minimal shaping and finishing. It incorporates a repetitive pattern using basic crochet stitches. However, it is not recommended for absolute beginners.

Pattern Description:

When I was about 7 years old, a Flamenco dancer visited my school to perform. I was dazzled by her shiny black hair, dancing shoes and beautiful long flowing skirt edged with coloured ruffles. Andalucia is a crocheted skirt inspired by this memory. It is a soft billowy A-line skirt, perfect for dancing and twirling.

Constructed from the top down and completely seamless it's both easy and super-quick. Easily customised for a perfect fit with an elastic waistband, it's the ideal choice for your little flamenco dancer.

Pattern includes instructions for both DK and light worsted weight yarns.

Gauge:

For DK/8ply:17 sc to 4 inches/10cm on 4.5mm hook (or size required to achieve gauge)
For worsted/10ply: 15 sc to 4 inches/10cm on 5.0mm hook (or size required to achieve gauge)

A note regarding gauge: For this pattern, gauge is not critical as the elastic waistband makes a perfect fit easy. It is more important to get the feel and drape of the fabric right. If it feels too stiff and thick, go up a hook size. If it is looking too loose and see-through (it is a skirt after all!), change to a smaller hook. It is up to you. However, don't forget to take into account the difference blocking will make!

Sizing / Finished Measurements:

  • 0-6 months through to size 14
  • To fit 16" - 29" waist

Materials:

  • For DK/8ply:4.5mm, 5.0mm and 5.5mm hooks or hook size required to achieve gauge.
