I love spring and spring fashion! Many people think crochet is no good for the warm weather, but these patterns are here to show you otherwise. There are wraps for the cool evening or beach breezes, sun hats, and more. So stay cool and crochet away!

Looped in Love - free crochet pattern size child small to adult 5x by Jessie At Home

Looped in Love Skirt
Crochet Pattern
Intermediate Skill Level
Designed by Jessie Rayot

The Looped in Love Skirt was inspired by my Dragon Wing Scarf. I love the way the increases work within the Jacob’s Ladder Stitch, and it just screamed “make me a flared skirt!!” I learned a long time ago, when a yarn or stitch pattern talks to me, it’s in my best interest to listen. So here it is, a fun skirt for all ages that flares between vertical sections of looped stitches. It’s made from the top down, so it can be made to any length that suits your fancy. The longer the skirt, the more yarn it will take.

This tutorial will help you to create a fun kids dress from an adult sized tee shirt. It even includes suggestions on how to make some accessories to go with it! This really is a tutorial more than a pattern, but if you follow along, you should be able to make your own version in a variety of sizes. You could even make an adult size if you can find a tee shirt large enough!

Skirts-and-Dresses-Crochet-Round-Up-by-Jessie-At-Home

Here are the names and links of each pattern, along with a little something that each designer has to say about them.

1) Rachel Skirt  ~ By Jessie At Home
Rachel is a slightly flared double crochet skirt with lace ruffles on the bottom. You choose how many rows of lace you want at the bottom of your skirt! Instructions are given for 7 different lace patterns, which can be place in any order, use several different laces, switch off between two, or even just make a few rows of the same one, it is all up to you! Sizes child to adult 5X

2) Forget Me Knot Set ~ By Trifles and Treasures
Sweet little dress and bonnet set for your little darling! Sized for 0-3 months.

3) Amelia ~ a wrap top skirt ~ Knit version available as well! ~ By Jessie At Home
Amelia is a fun, twirly skirt that fits a variety of shapes and sizes. The sides of the skirt are open from the waist on up. To wear the skirt, simply step on in and tie the back section around your waist, then wrap the front section around and tie. Or switch and tie the front section first, it is a matter of preference, creating a different look each way. Sizes child to adult 5X

4) Diamond Infant Dress ~ By Crafting Friends Designs
This Diamond Infant dress pattern has been tested and is very simple to follow. Sizes Newborn – 12 month.

5) Fanny ~ By Jessie At Home
Fanny is a fan stitch and double crochet skirt with a slight flare. The top of the skirt is made of 6 panels of fan stitch alternating with 6 wedges of double crochet. The wedges are what give the skirt the flare. The panels/wedges are made one at a time and connected to their neighbors as they are made, so only one yarn is being worked at a time; no multiple bobbins or skeins being worked at once! Sizes child to adult 5X

6) Puff Stitch Halter Dress ~ By Jessie At Home
Here is a fun summer dress I made for my daughter. The neck is made in a similar manner to my Puff Stitch Choker pattern, and the top is textured nicely with a combination of puff stitches and single crochet. The skirt is light and lacy and fun to twirl in! It can be worn over stretch pants or shorts, and it can be worn over a shirt as well for added warmth.

7) Ruffle Crochet Skirt ~ By Stitch11
his Ruffle Crochet Skirt is a great pattern to make for your little girl. It stops just above the knee, but can easily be made longer. Add bows or ribbon for added accessory, or even crochet a matching hair piece.

8) Tiered Ruffle Skirt ~ By KT and the Squid
The Tired Ruffle Skirt is an original pattern by me (Katy). The pattern may look difficult but it is easy enough for an advanced beginner. I have included lots of pictures to help you along. The pattern is written for girl sizes XXS/2, XS/4, S/6, M/8-10, and L/12-14.

9) Emma Skater Skirt ~ By Jessie At Home
Emma is a playful skater skirt inspired by a UK reality star, and the lovely ice skating ladies of the 2014 Olympics. This pattern features my unique less~bulky crochet waistband. There are photos to help you along and a few videos for extra explanation, though everything is completely explained in the text of the pattern. Emma also features a decorative border which can be made in another color for a bit of variety! Sizes child to adult 5X
