This skirt is pretty quick and easy to do. In order to avoid excessive fastening off and weaving in of ends, I worked this piece flat and sewed the back seam instead of working in rounds.
Directions for Pink Ruffle Short Skirt
NOTE: Ch 4 counts as first tr throughout pattern.
Row 1: Beg at hips, with pink, ch 41, sc in 2nd ch from hook, sc in each ch across, turn. (40 sc)
Row 2: Ch 1, sc in each st across, turn. (40 sc)
Row 3: Ch 1, sc in first 2 sts, 2 sc in next st, [sc in next 2 sts, 2 sc in next st]across to last st, sc in last st, turn. (53 sc)
Rows 4-7: Ch 1, sc in each st across, turn. (53 sc)
Row 8: Working this row in FRONT LOOPS ONLY, ch 4, 4 tr in first st, [sk next 2 sts, 5 tr in next st]across to last st, sk last st. DO NOT TURN. (18 tr clusters made)
Row 9 is worked behind row 8 in free loops of row 8. First you will 3 sl sts in end of last st made and sl st in end of row 8 like so.
Now you will turn piece over and work behind ruffle in free loops of row 8. Work tr in each free loop st like this. This is still row 9.
Now row 10 is worked in front loops of tr row like so.
