Just wondering, as I was toying with this idea. Not really sure how it would work, though. I saw a granny square skirt (about knee length) in a crochet book once but didn't read through the instructions thoroughly enough as I was on a quick shopping trip.

Seems like you could do it easily enough... If you made a ton of smallish granny squares, and then found a regular skirt pattern you could lay them on top of to match the size of the pieces, and sew them together.

You'd probably need a lining, but if you based it off a skirt pattern you could just use that for the lining.

I crocheted a skirt...  it wasn't a granny square skirt, it was just double crocheted.  I think it was pretty cute though, although I haven't been able to wear it yet (haven't finished the lining).

Here's a picture, if you're interested:


I want to take a better one when I'm done lining it, of me actually wearing it...  I find handsewing so tedious, so I haven't brought myself to finish it yet.

I once tried to crochet the Felicity Shagwell outfit.  I twas going to be a Halloween costume.  I started on Halloween.  LOL..BIG LOL!  I wanted it done for that day.  It was a last minute idea.  You can guess what happened...or didn't happen.

I still have that project somewhere...

I saw a skirt pattern in a Katia yarn book last night.  I wish I would have bookmarked the page.  If I come across it again, I'l post the link.  Otherwise, check out royalyarns.com.  If you click on "KATIA" on the left side of the page, a list of their yarn as well as pattern books will come up.  It's in one of those books.  Sorry I don't recall which one.

I actually used to have instructions online for it, I've been cleaning up and stuff but everything will be put back eventually.  But, I put the skirt instructions back for now, just for you FluffyMonkey Wink so you should feel special.  The page might disappear for a short amount of time, when I do decide to work on things, but it should be fairly safe.

instructions

You can make the skirt as long or short as you want.  Let me know if the instructions work for you!  You might want to modify things with increases or decreases if you make it longer than knee length, but that's entirely up to you.  I like short skirts, even though I'm a wee bit overweight and hate my legs.  If you make it right it can look good.  I'm still working on finishing the lining though...  I tried the skirt on without the lining, and it looks pretty good on me, so we'll see what happens!

Sorry if I talk too much, I'm just soo tired...
