You would think it’s a Can-Can Skirt by the way Goose was twisting and kicking around the house in it. And of course she had to put on her clompy heels and stomp.. You know, just to make sure EVERYONE was paying attention. I kept telling myself, while resisting the urge to pull out my hair, that it only means she likes it.
This one is a little more dainty than the last. The ribbon drawstring makes it so much sweeter. I just need to whip up a pair of stretch shorts to wear under it. The stitches are single crochet, but I used my rug hook… so they’re big with seeing room in between. Not a very lady-like look.
I’m not exactly liking the shrug and the skirt together either. The yarns are from the same color scheme, but for some reason I don’t think they go. The skirt looks better alone.. and the shrug looks better with a turquoise color. Don’t you think?
For anyone looking to make one, this is what I did..
*Measure your waist and using your H hook make a chain to match your measurement..
*Rows one and two, all sc
*Third row went like so.. 2dc, ch, skip next stitch and repeat (this is so you can lace your ribbon thru).
*Forth row, again all sc..
*Firth and rest, changed to a rug hook and sc.. adding an extra stitch every three stitches in every third row.
*Add buttons and ribbon.. (make shorts if you prefer a lady-like appearance) .. and you’re done.
