Drawstring Beach Skirt

from AG Handmades
(4) Name: 'Crocheting : Drawstring Beach Skirt
Drawstring Beach Skirt
Drawstring Beach Skirt
Drawstring Beach Skirt

Basic Skills Necessary:

  • single crochet; double crochet; chain

Pattern Description:

It began as a birthday gift....

I wanted something quick and simple for a friend who lives at the Ocean and spends a lot of time on the beach.

I thought maybe a swimsuit cover up skirt would be good, and so the idea was born.

This skirt fits from 24" waist up to 40" waist and 40" hips
Length 14" - completely adaptable to any length; you can make it as long or as short as you wish.

An incredibly simple skirt to make, and it works up very quickly indeed.

You can use any worsted weight yarn. I used Stylecraft Special Aran, in Denim colour. It would be lovely in Cotton for the Summer, although I personally prefer Acrylic as it has such a nice drape.

You will need 1-2 skeins Worsted Weight (aran/10ply) yarn, depending on how long you wish the skirt to be. I used 1.5 skeins for 14" length.

5mm crochet hook for the skirt, 7mm hook for the drawstring

A Yarn needle for sewing up ends

A few beads for prettiness

As always, enjoy!

AG :)
