I am a homeschooling mother of five wonderful children. I'm also a knitwear designer and a writer. I try to live simply and love to create. I began crocheting at the age of 8 and began designing my own patterns not long after. Knitting came much later, but it wasn’t long until I started writing knitting patterns as well. I’m thrilled to share the love of handmade creations with others~ so DaisyHead Creations was born!
You can sign up for my newsletter, The Brave Creative, by visiting the DaisyHead Creations blog. The sign up form is in the top right sidebar. The newsletter will keep you up to date on my newest patterns, any sales that I’m having, and it often brings you a free pattern!
You can also find me at my Etsy shop, DaisyHead Creations. Or at my mothering and homeschooling blog, the daisyhead.
The Bloomers Skirtie was originally created as a skirt to go over my Bloomers pattern. I liked the very full skirt with the ruffled legs of the Bloomers peaking out at the bottom. So cute and girlie!
This pattern includes only the skirt. It can be knitted onto DaisyHead Bloomers or any other soaker pattern. The pattern includes only one size, but is easily adaptable~ it begins with picking up stitches around your soaker's waistband, and then you can modify the length as you go. The fullness of the skirt is worked by changing needle size (no increasing). It's not necessary to use all the needle sizes listed, but the needle sizes are what give the gradual increase in fullness.
Let your creativity run wild and deck your little girl out in style!
This skirtie does not have to be part of a soaker. It can also be worked in another fiber as a skirt with an underskirtie or simply work a ribbed waistband for a simple skirt.
