Crochet Star Skirt





Materials

Lion Brand Yarn Beautiful You Yarn – Periwinkle

Scheepjes Whirlette- Grappa

C 2.75 mm crochet hook

Yarn needle

Scissors




Foundation Chain

Ch 135, Join, try not to twist. The chain should fit around your chest and the ends should almost touch each other without stretching it.



Round 1: Sc into each st across.



Hdc Star Stitch – Hdc star stitch forms rows of starburst-like stitches, each worked with multiple loops.



Round 2: Yarn over insert your hook into the second chain from the hook. Yarn over and pull through 2 loops, yarn over insert hook into next ch yarn over and pull through 2 loops, repeat until you have 6 loops on hook. With 6 loops on your hook, yarn over one more time and pull through all 6 loops. Chain one. This finishes the star. It also creates an "eye" in the center of the star. Next, yarn over and insert your hook into the "eye" that you just made, yarn over and pull through 2 loops. Yarn over insert your hook into the space between the two last spikes from the first star, yarn over and pull through 2 loops. Yarn over insert your hook into the same chain where you worked the last stitch of the previous star, yarn over and pull through 2 loops. Yarn over insert your hook into the next chain, yarn over and pull through 2 loops. Yarn over insert your hook into the next chain, yarn over and pull through 2 loops. Yarn over and pull through all loops. Chain one to close the second star. Repeat the steps above to make stars all the way across the row. When you get to the end, make one hdc in the last stitch.



Round 3: Turn your work and chain 2, 2 sc into the eye of the star in the row below. When you get to the end, crochet 2 sc in the final stitch.



Round 4-5: 1 sc in each st.



Round 6: Repeat rounds 2 to 5 until dress is the length you need for the top part of your body. You will need to measure the top part of you body to make this dress the size you need, once you have your measurement you will need to subtract it from the first part of the dress by measuring it.



Note: You may want to try on your dress to make sure it fits, if it’s to big you will count how many st’s you have and divide that number in to a number that go’s into it evenly then subtract 2, once you have that number you will sc to the number and then dec, you continue to dec (Switching in between colors, making 2 rounds of each color) until dress fits right.

Example: 256 (st’s) / 8 (how many dec I want) = 32 – 2 = 30 (The number of st’s I sc before I dec)

To continue to dec you would go one number down so if you did 30 then 29 is the next number of st’s before yo dec.

After two rounds of dec my dress still wont fit right so I counted my st’s again and decided to dec more in one round so it wont take so long.



Now that both parts are done you will sl st or sc the sides together. Once both parts are together then you can continue the pattern until the skirt is as long as you want.
