Crocheted skirts

Christie has me obsessed with crocheted skirts. (Do check out her Violet Beauregard from The Happy Hooker, totally cute.) There’s nothing for it. I have to copy her.

Sadly, my cotton stash consists of neon brights—for baby clothes—and oodles of organic oddballs, so until I can score some nice Tahki Classic or Butterfly, I gotta keep my needles to the knitting-for-hire grindstone. (Don’t y’all be tempting me with Elann, now, ya’hear?)

But a girl’s gotta dream. Here are some crocheted skirts we’d all look dreamy in:

1. Violet Beauregard. See above.

2. Spiderweb Skirt. Very flamenco. Very intimidating.


3. It Girl Pinstriped Pencil Skirt. Sexy, but suitable for the office.


4. Doris Chan’s Walking After Midnight (again, courtesy of Christie). A showstopper from Amazing Crochet Lace.

5. Easy Scalloped Skirt from Crochet Today, Oct./Nov. ‘06.


6. Visit Crochet Pattern Central and search on “skirt“ and you'll receive a plethora of free offerings. There's even a special little number for your sock monkey.

Do you have any crocheted skirts on your hit list?

I've been knitting for a few years but I'm kinda new to crochet. I just started "Violet Beauregard" and I'm loving it so far, except that the version I'm making is not very violet.

I love purple, but I didn't have much luck finding anything but pastels in the local stores' cotton yarn selections. I'm just not a pastel person, and I was too impatient to buy yarn online and wait for it to arrive, so I went with basic black (that definitely goes with a lot of stuff in my wardrobe). The skirt is so cute and breezy, I'm afraid the black may weigh it down a bit but at least it will match most of my clothes!

HAHAHAHAHAHA!!!  It's all a part of my evil crochet plan!!!!  I do love my Violet, it's just been too cool to wear of late.  Although I haven't tried it with boots and tights.  Hmmm....might have to try that.  

I'm diggin that it girl skirt!  Did you see the Lily Chin crochet dress?  I'm trying to work my way up to that.
