My Crochet You Tube Channel: https://www.youtube.com/user/amray767


Supplies: Caron Soft Pink yarn, or whatever yarn you prefer

Sashay yarn, 1 ball for the toddler size, and 1 1/2 balls of sashay yarn for the bigger size
I and F hook

Ribbon, any kind is fine, as long as it fits in the triple crochet belt space
(Girls size 2, 4)
Finished waist: 20", 22"
Directions are for size 2 and 4, if you want a smaller size, then use less chains for the waist. Use your measuring tape to measure.

(Chain 66 for size 2, or 72 for size 4), join to first ch to form a loop. Be careful not to twist it.
I hook with pink yarn

Rnd 1. sc in each stitch around, sl st. (66,72)
Rnd 2. ch 3, triple crochet in each stitch around, sl st in beg chain. (66,72) (this will be the ribbon belt loops)
Rnds 3-4. ch 1, sc in each stitch around, sl st. (66,72)  *Repeat for next two rounds
Rnds 5-7. *ch 1, sc in the back loops in each stitch around, sl st, (66,72) *Repeat for the next three rounds.
Rnd 8. ch 1, *sc in the back loops in next two stiches, 2sc in the next stitch in the back loops, *
Repeat around, sl st, (88,96)
Rnds 9-24. *ch 1, sc in the back loops in each stitch around, sl st, *Repeat, (88,96)
Take Ribbon and skip two triple crochet and insert in the next loop, *Repeat around, then in the center front, opposite side of the seam, skip 4 triple crochet in between the two ends of ribbon and connect the two ends of the ribbon and make a bow.

For Size 4, I would continue the length to 6 more rows, so go to round 30.

Sashay Ruffle: Ballet, F hook

Rounds for Sashay skirt:  F hook for ruffles

Rnd 5. start in round 5 for ruffles. *Create the Sashay Ruffle on hook first to start, by folding the yarn inward about an inch, and inserting hook in the 2nd loop from the beginning of the fold. Skip two loops on the sashay yarn, insert hook in the 3rd hook on the yarn and pull through the loops on the hook.

In Round 5, Insert your hook with the sashay ruffle that you create (directions above) in the first sc back loop at the back seam. skip one loop on sashay yarn and insert hook in the next sashay yarn loop and pull the sashay yarn loop through the skirt back loop and sashay yarn loop, this will create the 2nd ruffle. 

So Insert your hook in each sc back loop for each round. Then skip one loop on the sashay yarn loop and then pull through both loops. *Repeat for each row for ruffles

Rnds 6-7. Skip 2 rows of back loops, then start a row of ruffles in the 3rd row of back loops.
Rnd 8. *Repeat Row of Ruffles (same as round 5. same as above.)
Rnds  9-10. Skip 2 rows of back loops
Rnd 11. *Repeat Row of Ruffles (same as above.)
Rnds 12-13. Skip 2 rows of back loops
Rnd 14. *Repeat Row of Ruffles (same as above.)
Rnds 15-16. Skip 2 rows of back loops
Rnd 17. *Repeat Row of Ruffles (same as above.)
Rnds 18-19.  Skip 2 rows of back loops
Rnd 20. *Repeat Row of Ruffles (same as above.)
Rnds 21-22.  Skip 2 rows of back loops
Rnd 23. *Repeat Row of Ruffles (same as above.)
Rnd 24. Leave alone

For Size 4, I would continue the length to 6 more rows, so go to round 30. Just alternate every 2 rows skip like seen above.

I've been doing the ruffled scarves from Sashay and Starbella yarn, but never think of the skirt.

Thank you for the great idea!

Kaleigh said...

This skirt is so adorable! I might make it for my cousin one day. She likes to prance around in fancy clothes like that. :)

Kitty Ange said...

Waouh! thanks so cute ♥

margaret rodriguez said...

Could u do a video or the link to the bottom skirt on this sashay skirt pattern? It could benefit me a lot.

Amy Lehman said...

I did do a video

Thank you for sharing

Suzanne Kreisher said...

So cute!! I'd love to make one for my 6 year old niece. Do you have instructions for sizes larger than 2-4?

Amy Lehman said...

for a larger size, I would measure her waist, then crochet chains that are same measurements as the waist measurement, and just follow the rest of the pattern

Suzanne Kreisher said...

Looking at your pattern the base for the skirt is done in SC with the ruffle being attached in every 3d row. I wonder...could I cut down on the number of rows needed for the base by SCing row 5, then DC row 6 (rather than SCing 6 and 7) and so on...the ruffle would be attached to the SC rows. Thoughts?

Amy Lehman said...

Sure, that would work since the ruffle would cover the base

Chicki Jewels said...

I made this for my grand-daughter, it is so cute and I am so proud of myself. I made the 2t with no problem. Thanks for the wonderful pattern

Minerva said...

This is really beautiful. You are very creative. With a few changes, we can make a lamp shade cover also.

laura said...

Wow, at first glance I thought this was a clutch purse. Little girls get to wear all the fun stuff! This stuff could be used as a ruffled cuff for plain shirts, the neckline as well. It would be pretty as a "flower" on a hat.

Angeline said...

Love this skirt and your blog...so you'll have a next follower!;-)

Suzanne Kreisher said...

TIP: If you are making this skirt in a larger size, using the Caron yarn might make it too heavy. I am making it in a girls size 6 and am using a sport weight yarn which seems to be working out well.

verov said...

I am very confused on round 8 could you please help me! thank you

Amy Lehman said...

just repeat the round 8 of ruffles the same way you do round 5 of ruffles

Sarah Seifert said...

I plan on making this in the Starbella yarn Stinger color (Black and Gold) for football season. Both my daughters will get one. And all four of my nieces may get one. So. Stinkin. Cute!! Thank you!

My 6 year old and I are very excited to have found this pattern! thank you! I am really going to try to make it for her self and for her little sister ;) wish me luck!

Suzanne Kreisher said...

I have made 2 skirts this week and both were received with delight. Thanks for sharing such a precious pattern.

lacyndarella said...

Your skirt pattern inspired a really cute little purse... https://www.facebook.com/photo.php?fbid=4742318240470&set=a.1492014664912.2065022.1370397972&type=1&theater

Pamela Lindsey said...

On round 8 of the skirt I am assuming you are supposed to repeat the pattern of sc in next 2 stitches, 2sc in next stitch around to the end? At least that is what I did

Amy Lehman said...

yes thats right

Michele Knox said...

Hi! I'm so excited to use this pattern. Is there a printer friendly version of it? My daughter is 3 and LOVE to be a Fairy Godmother... I think this would be too cute!

Amy Lehman said...

you should be able to copy and print from the blog, but if you need me to send you a copy of it via email, email me at amray767@yahoo.com and I will email it to you, so you can print it off.

Alexis McCabe said...

Thank you so much for this pattern!

Adodds said...

I'm new to crochet love this pattern but am confused why it goes from 72 to 96 am I supposed to increase and last stitch of each row so right?

Amy Lehman said...

I goes from 72, to 96, because in that next row, I made an increase, there is only one increase round in the skirt, after that, there will not be an increase, just single crochet around to the end of the skirt.

Adodds said...

Ty :)

Barbara Burton said...

Thank you so much for the instructions!! I'm going to start on one for my precious 2 1/2 old grand daughter TOMORROW!!! This is such a darling little skirt....

Mrs. Adame said...

For size 6 would I begin with chain 78?

Crochet Jewel said...

you could try that

Samic said...

this would make a really cute clutch purse or bag.

Crochet Jewel said...

Thank you!

Crystal Boedeker said...

Love how easy this pattern is!! I made it in a day and had quite a few friends wanting to make their own for their little girls so I passed on the link to your page! I plan to make another in different colors but only ruffle the bottom. Once again...Amazing!!!

Crochet Jewel said...

Thanks, come find me on my new site, for new patterns, www.crochetjewel.com

ottomedic51 said...

My 23 yr old daughter has been making my 18 mos old grand daughter these awesome skirts ever since we saw your post. She's even making them for her close friends. And she's FAST, cranking out 2 complete ones in a day!! Thank you for sharing your pattern...

Crochet Jewel said...

Thanks, glad you like them!

Prospect Park said...

Two things I did different, only did the back loop sc on those rows where the ruffle is attached and worked the ruffles from the bottom up. This makes putting the ruffle on easier.

Heather Vallee said...

I made this for my 5 year old grand daughter. It was loved by her and everyone who sees it. My 72 year old mother has requested one for her doll! Thank you so much for sharing this beautiful pattern.

Transparently Tammi said...

❤ this sashay skirt! I was wondering if there was anything else that could be used for the base to put the ruffles on since I don't know how to croquet? Tube top maybe? I'm clueless....help!

Crochet Jewel said...

hmm, not sure since I only know crochet

Joylynn Geertsen said...

On each ruffle row do u fasten off then start a new row of ruffles????

Crochet Jewel said...

yes, just fasten off, did you watch the video, that will help too, :)

moonbeam said...

Oh fantastic!! I was so confused at to what to do with it, and have had so many friends with little girls ask me to make these!! THANK YOU!

pink5js said...

Did it work? Was hoping to start one this evening..

jocelyn vernon said...

Very pretty. thank you for sharing this pattern. i love to make this for my little girl

Tabitha22 said...

I am making this for a 3 month old would I still need to do rows 9 through 24?? With the regular yarn

Crochet Jewel said...

I only measured it for a 2 or 4 year old. So my guess is, measure the waist or know the waist of a 3 month old, and chain a width for that measurement. Then continue on for how long you would want for a 3 month old. I would do a google search and see how long a 3 month is from waist to feet and then cut that in half for the length. I can't say I know for sure, since I only did this for a toddler and older.

Tabitha22 said...

Ok thank you!!

PAK said...

I'm a little confused about the rounds count. You say to sc for rows 3-4, and then repeat for the next 2 rounds. Then it goes to Rounds 5-7, but haven't those already been done it the two rounds following 3 and 4? Help!

Crochet Jewel said...

I'm just saying the same thing two different ways. I'm saying do rounds 3-4, then continue on with rounds 5-7. I just said it twice so you know to repeat round 3 twice, which equals rounds 3-4. and same thing for rounds 5-7, repeat round 5, three times. So just to be clear just do rounds 3-4 the way it says then continue on to rounds 5-7 the way it says, ignore the repeating part, it just means to do round 3: twice, and to do round 5: three times. Hope I made that clear?

Kimberly Koge said...

At the end of each round with the sashay yarn, do you have to cut and tie off or only at the end of the entire skirt? I have my base skirt complete and I'm not sure if I do a continuous crochet with the sashay or keep cutting and reattaching. Thanks!

Crochet Jewel said...

yes cut off the sashay yarn at the end of each round.

Karin Nicole said...

I am in need of some help! My seam seems to be going in a diagonal. I have started and restarted it at least twice and it's the same issue! My stitches count out right, but what might I be doing wrong?

Crochet Jewel said...

not sure why it would be going on a slant, make sure your count is correct. Also make sure that you don't sc in that last stitch, that is really be previous beginning stitch, that can make that happen. Make sure you only increase where is says too.

Emily said...

Maybe this is a dumb question but how do you tie this off? Cut it and sew it then start a new row of ruffles? Sorry I'm new to this yarn.

Crochet Jewel said...

did you watch the video, that will help on how to cut it off and tie it. Yes, you will start a new row of ruffles each time for each row of ruffles.

Audry Martin said...

When you are suppose to chain in the beginning round do u sc in that stitch as well or just go to the second sc from the begginning round and sc in that one and do u count the chain 1 as a stitch? For some reason i end up with 73 not 72 in each round even if i start out with 72

Crochet Jewel said...

no sc in the next stitch after the chain 1. I don't have the skirt to count the stitches anymore, at the time I had a 72 count on sc only, not including the chain 1. But if its working out with one more sc count, then I wouldnt worry about it.

susie turner said...

Hi I was wondering if u could please male a video of you making the shirt I can follow a video but not so good with just the instructions(I need to see what u are doing).please!!!!!!!!!!!


Thanks Susie turner

Crochet Jewel said...

when i get a chance, right now my whole house is sick with a cold.

Linda Henderson said...

Suzanne Kriesher, could you please tell me what your pattern ended up being for the size 6 skirt please?

Laura Johnson said...

I was wondering if you had a pattern similiar to this but a skort. My son does not allow his daughters to west short skirts without leggings and I dont want to detract from how adorable this pattern is!! TIA

Crochet Jewel said...

I do not have a skort pattern sorry. Also I dont have a size 6 worked out. But I suggest you can measure the childs waist and work a chain that fits around her waist and pretty much work the in a similar pattern.

Ria Smits said...

I'm so happy I found your site and this pattern.Thank you for sharing,I new It had to work but could not figur out how and tada you showed me how to!!! sorry for the mistakes, greatings from the Netherlands from Ria

SuzyQ said...

I saw some questioning about fastening off after each row and I found it easier to just chain 3 and drop down to the next set of back loop rows and continue the same without cutting the yarn. It worked out perfectly. Thanks for this pattern. I was looking for some other things to make other than the scarves and this was perfect.

Ria Smits said...

Oh Amy, girl I do love you for this joepie !!! finally I can make something else from the sashay yarn.I'm going to use It for bags and shawls wowie
greatings from the Netherlands Ria

Rachel- LaDawn Creations said...

Thanks you for posting this Pattern. It turned out great and wish there was a way to post a photo of it. I made the size 2T with a smaller hook and fits my 11M3W old. I made it for her 1st birthday or Easter. It turned out SUPER Cute. Its a great pattern.

carol townsend said...

I made this short skirt for my granddaughter and changed it into shorts by
1 find the middle of front and back
2 with that point in the middle sc 8 or 9 stitches.
3 sc back and forth reducing as you go along until you think it is long enough to reach between the legs. then sc into the back around the middle point.
4 sc several rows around the openings for legs of the shorts. It turns out very nice.
