Okay I know you can knit pleats, but since I suck at knitting, can you crochet pleats or not? The reason I ask is because this Anime Iowa 05 I will be Cosplaying Yuna from final fantasy 10 - all crochet...knit if I have to. The pleats, are obviously for her skirt.

I have a patern for a little girls sailor outfit that has a pleated skirt on the bottom, the entire thing is pleats, i dont know if you wanted pleats every so often to flair it out or all pleats but this should help as a jumping off point.  It's looks like you could easily adjust it by chain more in the begining.  it is worked from the bottom up and uses BPdc and FPdc to make the pleats. 
The pattern uses cotton sportweight and size G hook for a size 4t so you'll have to make it bigger but it seams like you'll be able to use a bigger hook and just crochet a longer starting chain. 
The pattern says the skill level is expeirenced
chain 199
Row 1: Hdc in 2nd ch from hook, hdc in each ch across;turn- 198sts

Row 2: Ch 1, hdc in first 6 hdc; *BPdc around next hdc in row below, hdc in next 3 hdc, FPdc around next hdc in row below, hdc in next 6 hdc: rep frop * across; end with BPdc around nest hdc in row below, hdc in last 4 hdc; turn.

Row 3: ch 1, sc in each st across; turn

Row 4: ch 1, sc in first 6 sc; * BPdc around next BPdc, sc in next 3 sc, FPdc around next FPdc, sc in next 6 sc; rep from * across, ending BPdc around next BPdc, sc in last 4 sc; turn

Row 5: ch1, hdc in first 4 sts; * FPdc around FPdc, hdc in next 6 sts, BPdc around BPdc, hdc in next 3 sts; rep from * accross; end with FPdc around FPdc, hdc in last 6 sts; turn

Row 6: ch1, hdc in first 6 sts; *BPdc around next BPdc, sc in next 3 sts, FPdc around next FPdc, sc in next 6 sts; rep from * across; end with BPdc around next BPdc, sc in last 4 sts; turn

Repeat rows 3-6 once more

repeat rows 5-6 until pice mesures approx 7" from beg ending with a ws row. fasten off
Sew back seam of skirt to make an inner pleat with RS facing fold each FPdc toward the right for a 1" pleat so the BPdc falls as the inside edge of the pleat

hope that helps, it kinda confuses me with all the FPdc, and BPdc but it give you the general idea. GOOD LUCK!

OMG! Thank you so much GeekMagnet, I love you! I can't try it out now, but as soon as I get home tonight I'm going to see how it works out.

I found this link on another site just today, so I'm bumping it up since it's old---I'm excited to ck out how crocheted pleats will look...might come in handy for a number of projects floating around in my head!
