Enjoy this cute Sashay yarn skirt. My little one is only 7 months and I can't wait for her to wear this cute skirt I made for her when she becomes a toddler. I saw a few of these skirts online, but you had to pay for the pattern, so I decided to create one myself after some trial and error. I was happy to make a video to go with this pattern since I figured it may be a little tricky to attach the sashay yarn to the skirt.
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)
Rnd 3-4 ch 1, sc in each stitch around, sl st. (66,72) *Repeat for next two rounds
Rnd 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)
Rnd 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
Rnd 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 round 5. same as above.)
Rnd 9-10 Skip 2 rows of back loops
Rnd 11. *Repeat Row of Ruffles (same as above.)
Rnd 12-13. Skip 2 rows of back loops
Rnd 14. *Repeat Row of Ruffles (same as above.)

Rnd 17. *Repeat Row of Ruffles (same as above.)

Rnd 20. *Repeat Row of Ruffles (same as above.)
Rnd 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.
