Winter crochet skirt


With the onset of cold weather I always want to put on something warm and stylish at the same time. I am pleased to present to you a skirt for cold days. It is a beautiful long crocheted skirt with a flared silhouette made from the gray half-woolen yarn.
Because of its sheerness, you may need to attach lining, or you can wear it with leggings.  It will look splendid both with tall boots with high heels  or with wedge boots.
According to the latest fashion trends,  crocheted clothing is very popular. How to wear this crochet skirt in winter? A cropped jacket, knitted cap and scarf in matching colors for the street, a slim fit turtleneck or a fine knit sweater for the indoors - and you are all set.
I used a 50/50 wool/acrylic yarn. The thickness of the thread is about 300m/100gr (or 125m/50gr), hook number 2.5-3. The thicker is the thread, the longer is the skirt and the bigger are the patterns. If thinner thread is used, the skirt will be shorter. You can use cotton, and then you will get a nice summer skirt. Crochet should be very airy and loose.
This skirt was my first big crochet project and I worked on it for about three weeks. Several times I did it wrong and unpicked large pieces. But I am happy with the result. I did not attach lining to the skirt, because I want to wear it with leggings, too. Don't forgot to through ribbon or elastic in the waist.
These are patterns:
