Crochet skirts are completely new to me, I’ve never made one and until a few weeks ago I didn’t even realise crochet skirt patterns existed! The idea of making a skirt came to me when I received an email from Darn Good Yarn about their Sari Wrap Skirts. Before opening the email I assumed it was going to be about crochet patterns for skirts made with some of their awesome ethically sourced yarn. Whilst I was excited to see their range of handmade skirts made from 100% reclaimed materials, I still wanted to hunt for some crochet skirts!
When beginning my search for crochet skirt patterns I was pleasantly surprised by how many incredible patterns there were! There is so much variety in styles as well as construction techniques. You can even make a skirt using granny squares as shown in this Novita pattern which didn’t quite make the list but deserves a mention and is totally free to download! I’ve found so many wonderful skirt patterns that I’m not sure which one I want to try first, check out the list below and let me know in the comments which are your favourite. Also, if you’re looking for more crochet clothing patterns, check out my previous posts on T-shirts patterns and Tank Top patterns.
Crochet Skirt Patterns
Summer Wave Skirt
This lightweight skirt is made using the ripple stitch and is described as an easy crochet level pattern by the designer. Whilst it looks amazing in white you could easily add some colour to this pattern if you desired, perhaps some blues to complement the wave theme? You’ll need a sport weight yarn for this project, the designer suggests Lion Brand’s A Star Is Born: Oh Baby Yarn or Knit Picks Simply cotton organic sport might work well.
Another wave themed pattern, this one is full of colour! The pattern is suitable for advanced beginners and it includes written instructions along with charts. You’ll need a fingering weight yarn for this project in lots of different colours, Schachenmayr Catania Fine would work perfectly!

With this pattern you can make matching skirts for you and your little one. The 2 layer skirt can be adjusted to different lengths and you can make it in any colour combination to suit you. The yarn used in this pattern is Paintbox Simply Aran – a soft, durable and inexpensive yarn.
This free crochet pattern was inspired by the look of the evening wind blowing through waves of grass at the seashore. It is worked from the top-down using Knit Picks Lindy Chain, the first few rows are worked flat then it is joined and worked in the round for the rest of the pattern.
This crochet skirt pattern gets its name from the stitches used which resemble scales. The use of colour changing yarn really makes this pattern stand out. King Cole Summer 4ply or Rico Creative Cotton Degrade Print would work perfectly.
Bittersweet Margaret Skirt
This summer crochet skirt pattern is a great addition to any handmade wardrobe for the summer. With its flattering pleats and cinched waist, you’ll be spinning around to show your skirt off in no time! Make this skirt with Lion Brand’s Coboo, a cotton and bamboo blend offering the perfect drape.
This pattern is a free download and it’s absolutely amazing! The pattern is very detailed and has lots of useful notes at the beginning to help you along the way. The suggested yarn for this pattern is Knit Picks Shine Worsted.

”Kvitka” means ”flower” in the Ukrainian language. This skirt is made of hexagon motifs which when joined together resemble flowers. A lightweight fingering yarn is needed for this pattern.
A nice white skirt with pops of colour which resemble tulips. This pattern is considered an easy crochet level and the pattern includes written instructions along with photos and diagrams.
