Ready to crochet something you’ll love making that’s also fun to wear? 

The Sagebrush Skirt is worked from the top down in easy-to-follow stitch repeats. And, you can adjust the length as you work to make a custom style that you love!

The tiny spaces of open stitching help to give the fabric in this skirt movement and comfort. You can wear this fitted (snugly around your body), or a little oversized, letting the fabric hang a bit loosely from your waist. Either way you’ll have a comfortable and flattering piece. 

Not sure how to style your skirt?

I like to wear my Sagebrush Skirt over a pair of leggings in the Spring and Fall, and over a bathing suit in the summer.

This pattern is worked in rows (at the waist) and then joined rounds (the skirt). You’ll use simple stitches like chain, single, double and slip stitch to create this fabric.

This Sagebrush Skirt is a great design to crochet because:

  • You can use most weight 4 yarns you already have on hand, but natural fibers and blends may feel best.
  • You can easily adjust the length by adding (or omitting) the repeat rounds (just try it on as you go)!
  • This project is easy to size as you crochet, so you’ll have fun making the perfect fit!
  • You’ll get to practice a lot of crochet skills: Rows, joined rounds,complex stitch and round repeats, shaping, stitch and row gauge, size and fit, finishing techniques & more!
