Crochet skirts are not the hardest crochet clothing to make. They’re probably easier to make than crochet tops! But even so, remember, it’s the first time for everything. If needed, check out this Complete Guide to Crochet for Beginners if you wish to learn how to crochet for the first time. It talks about the basics of crochet, including the tools and supplies you’ll need, the stitches you’ll use most often, and the most commonly used methods.


1. What supplies do I need for a crochet skirt?

This question comes up often when you’re getting started on a new project. It is good to note that the most accurate answer will be the supplies stated in the chosen pattern. However, generally, the supplies that you’ll see in most of the patterns on this list are listed as follows:
Refer to the yarn weight specified in the individual tutorial patterns provided in the curated lists.
This ensures a perfect fit for your crocheted skirt.
Crochet Hook
Use the recommended hook size for the best results. If needed, use a hook size up or down to meet the tension gauge.
Stitch Markers
Use them to mark rows and other important stitches, such as the first and last stitch in a pattern.
Tapestry Needle
Use it to sew crochet pieces and hide yarn tails.
Use it to cut your yarn.
Measuring Tape
Use it to check the tension gauge of your test swatch to see if it matches the pattern. This is critical if you want to crochet clothing that fits you.
It is also important to measure your body (waist and hips) and decide how long you want your crochet skirt to be.

2. What kind of yarn should I use?

You want your crochet skirt to be comfortable, gentle on the skin, and breathable. Cotton blend and wool blend yarns are some of the suitable yarns for crochet clothing. Finer and lightweight yarns are also some other popularly used yarns, for example, fingering and crochet lace thread to produce airy skirts for the summer.

3. What crochet stitches do I need to know?

Most of the patterns in this list use basic stitches. Hence, be sure to familiarize yourself with stitches like the magic ring, chain stitch, slip stitch, single crochet stitch, half double crochet, and double crochet stitch.

4. How to crochet a skirt?

In general, there are 3 ways to crochet a skirt.

A. The first option in some of the patterns is to crochet a rectangular shape. Rectangles are simple to crochet when worked in short rows along the shorter side. It should be long enough to wrap around your hips. The top is then adjusted to cinch the waist with a waist tie or ribbon.

B. Another option is to crochet the skirt in joined rounds beginning at the waist. It’s recommended to start with a smaller waist circumference that works for you. The hip can be accommodated by gradually increasing the number of stitches from the top. This method allows you to alter the length of your crochet skirt.

C. The third option is uncommon, but it can be found in some crochet patterns. It adapts the skirt sewing method, in which flat pieces are crocheted according to the design and then sewn together to form a skirt.

5. Can I customize the crochet skirt pattern to fit me?

Some patterns come in a variety of sizes for you to choose from, while others include instructions for adjusting the skirt’s size based on your measurements.

If you require additional assistance, there are many tutorials and videos available online. These resources can walk you through the process of altering the original crochet skirt pattern to fit you. Generally, it’s all about increasing and decreasing the rows and length to adjust the width and length of the skirt.

6. What care instructions should I take note of?

To ensure that your crochet skirt lasts longer and does not lose its shape, always wash it according to the instructions on the yarn label.
Rinse the skirt thoroughly and press to remove excess water (rather than twisting to wring). Stretch the skirt flat on a dry towel to dry. To allow for faster and more even drying, turn the skirt on a regular basis and change the towel as needed.

7. What are the different names for skirt lengths?

Here are a few common lengths for skirts.
Micro mini skirt ends higher than the mid-thigh.
Mini skirt stops above the knee and often rests between the mid-thigh and the knee.
Midi skirt stops mid-calf, between the knee and the ankle.
Maxi skirt extends to the ankle.
