This lovely, lacy skirt is made in two segmentsthe skirt top section and the pineapple border. Because it was designed in this manner, you have more control over the length of the finished skirt. You make the pineapple border first so you know exactly how much length the border adds to the finished skirt. Then, setting the border aside, you start at the waist and make the skirt body to your desired length. You then attach the skirt to the border. This design is a slim-fitting skirt with a flared, slightly ruffled border. Pattern is written with instructions for fitting any size using any yarn or thread. This elegant skirt is to be worn over a lightweight soft skirt. Skirt can be worn at waistline or low on hips as desired. Size Pattern is written with instructions for fitting any size using any yarn or thread. Materials To make this skirt, I recommend Royale Fashion Crochet size 3, Aunt Lydia's Fashion Crochet size 3, Royale Luna Fashion, or Aunt Lydia's Shimmer Fashion, all by J&P Coats. Luster Sheen by Coats and Clark is also a very good choice. Other possible threads of about the same weight are Patons Grace, Speed-Cro-Sheen, various brands of cabled cotton thread, DMC Senso size 3, and a doubled strand of size 10 crochet cotton thread.
