Materials

  • 14 ply Fingering yarn or 12 ply Sport Yarn (I used Cotton Kings TWIRLS. You can find this yarn following the next link (not an affiliate link ) hobbii.com
  • 3.5 mm (E) and 4 mm (G) hook size
  • Elastic band
  • sewing needle
  • scissors
  • measuring tape
  • yarn for sewing

Final Measurement (waist)

  • S – 66 cm (26 “)
  • M – 74 cm (29″)
  • L – 84 cm (33″)
  • 1X – 94 cm (37″)
  • 2X – 104 cm (41″)
  • 3X – 112 cm (44″)

The length is for all sizes 50 cm ( 19.5 “), but you can adjust the length of the crocheted top-skirt by making more or less rounds.

Yardage

If you obtain the same gauge as mine or the same number of sts for each size then you will need approximate:

  • S – 875 yds / 800 m / 200 gr
  • M – 1000 yds / 914 m /230 gr
  • L – 1130 yds / 1030 m / 260 gr
  • 1X – 1250 yds / 1140 m / 285 gr
  • 2X – 1380 yds /1260 m / 320 gr
  • 3X – 1490 yds /1360 m / 340 gr

Gauge

with 3.5 mm (E) hook

18 dc = 10 cm (4″)

10 rows = 10 cm (4″)

In 10 cm of elastic band I had 50 sc

What stitches you will have to know

  • Chain (ch)
  • Single Crochet (Sc)
  • Double crochet (dc)
  • Slip stitch (sl st)
  • 2 double crochet worked together (dc2tog) – yarn over, insert the hook trough the st, yarn over and pull the yarn trough first 2 loops ( keep 2 loops on your hook. Repeat 2 times. Yarn over and pull the yar trough all 3 loops on your hook
  • 4 double crochet worked together (dc4tog) – the same as dc2tog, only that you will do this for time, in 4 sts.

Top- skirt. One piece, 3 ways to wear it

Now we can start the Top-skirt.

First, grab a measuring tape and measure your waist, or you can get the elastic band it self and put it around your waist. The idea is that after this procedure you will have one elastic band that measures your waist.

Next, sew the edges of the elastic band, to make a circle.

The measurements of the elastic band are the same as the final waist measurement that I listed above.

Round 1

In single crochet, we will work in rounds and cover the elastic band. When you get to the end of the round sl st to join.Top - skirt round 1

Round 2

Ch 1 and 1 sc in each stitch. At this round you will have to count the sts that you have.

According to my gauge you should have:

  • S – 332 sts
  • M – 372 sts
  • L – 422 sts
  • 1X – 472 sts
  • 2X – 522 sts
  • 3X – 562 sts

If you don’t have the same number of sts is not a problem. We will adjust the number of sts on the next round.

 

All you have to know is that gauge isn’t that important in this crocheted top-skirt pattern. If the elastic band fits your waist then every thing will be just perfect.

 

The only think that matter is to have a multiple of 16 sts. As you can see, the numbers above aren’t multiple of 16, that’s why we will do the next round in double crochet and we will adjust that.

Round 3

1 dc in each st and as many increases that you need to get to a multiple of 16 sts.

Let’s see how we can find how many increases you have to make on this round.

Divide the number of sts that you have by 16.

ex: 332 ÷ 16 = 20.75

Now take the next number (in the ex above 21) and multiply it with 16 (21 × 16 = 336).

So in hour example we will need 336 sts to have a multiple of 16. We have 332 sts, so we will need 4 more sts. So we will do 4 increases during the round 3.

So:

  • S – we have 332 sts and we will add 4 sts, in total 336 sts
  • M – we have 372 sts, add 12 sts, in total 384 sts
  • L – we have 422 sts, add 10 sts, in total 432 sts
  • 1X – we have 472 sts, add 8 sts, in total 480 sts
  • 2X – we have 522 sts, add 6 sts, in total 528 sts
  • 3X – we have 562 sts, add 14 sts, in total 576 sts

 

Now that we have the needed number of sts, we can begin with the stitch pattern of our Crocheted  Top-Skirt.

 

We will start counting the round again from 1.

 

This is the chart for the stitch of the Crocheted Top-Skirt:

We will work in rounds so we will start and end a little bit different.

Round 1

Begin with 3 sl st. Ch 3. This chain 3 counts as a first dc. 1 dc in the same ch 3 st, 1 dc in the next 3 sts. Ch 3, skip 3 sts, 1 dc in the next 3, 2 dc in the next.

[Ch 3, skip the next 5 sts, 2 dc in the next, 1 dc in the next 3 sts. Ch 3, skip the next 3 sts, 1 dc in the next 3, 2 dc in the next].

 

Repeat the section between [ ] to the end of the round. The round will end with ch 3, skip the last 5 sts and join with sl st with the 3rd st of the starting ch.

Round 2

Ch 3, 1 dc in the next 2 sts, dc2tog in the next 2

[ch 5, skip the ch 3, dc2tog in the next 2 sts, 1 dc in the next 3, ch 2, skip the ch 3, 1 dc in the next 3 sts, dc2tog in the next 2].

Repeat the section between [ ] to the end of the round. The round will end with dc2tog, 1 dc in the next 3, ch 2 and join with sl st with the 3rd st of the starting chain.

Round 3 

Ch 3, 1 dc in the next st, dc2tog in the next 2.

[ch 3, 2 dc in the 3rd st of the 5 sts chain, ch 3, dc2tog in the next 2 sts, 1 dc in the next 2, ch 1, skip the ch 2, 1 dc in the next 2 sts, dc2tog in the next 2]

Repeat the section between [ ] to the end of the round. The round will end with dc2tog, 1 dc in the next 2 sts, ch 1 and join with the 3rd st of the starting chain.

Round 4

Ch 3, dc2tog in the next 2 sts.

[Ch 3, skip the ch 3, 3 dc in the next dc, ch 1, 3 dc in the next dc, ch 3, skip the ch 3, dc2tog in the next 2 sts, 1 dc in next, skip the ch1, 1 dc in the next st, dc2tog in the next 2 sts].

Repeat the section between [ ] to the end of the round. The round will end with dc2tog, 1 dc in next, join with the 3rd st of the starting ch.

Round 5

Ch2, 1 dc in the next.

[Ch3, skip the ch 3, 2 dc in the next st, 1 dc in the next 2, ch 2, 1 dc in the next 2, ch 3, dc4tog]

Repeat the section between [ ] to the end of the round ending the round with 3 partial dc, then insert the hook into the st at the beginning of the round, yarn over end pull the yarn trough all loops on your hook( we will finish this way the dc4tog).

 

So, these are the first 5 rounds that we will have to repeat to the end of our Crocheted Top-Skirt.

Top - Skirt first 5 rounds

Round 6 and each next round after a set of 5, will be the same as round 1. Just a little bit different counting that we are not working in a foundation.

Let’s see:

 

First, every round after a set of 5, has to start in a dc. So, we will slip the stitches to the first dc ( a ch 3).

Then, ch3, 1 dc in the same st, 1 dc in the next 3 sts, ch 3, skip the ch 2, 1 dc in the next 3 sts, 2 dc in the next.

[Ch 3, skip the (ch 3, dc4tog st, ch 3), 2 dc in the next st, 1 dc in the next 3,  ch 3, skip the ch 2, 1 dc in the next 3 sts, 2 dc in the next].

Repeat the section between [ ] to the end of the round ending the round with ch 3, skip the ch 2, 1 dc in the next 3, 2 dc in next, ch 3, skip (ch 3, dc4tog, ch 3) and join with the 3rd st of the starting chain.

The other 4 rounds of a set of 5, will be the same as rounds 2, 3, 4and 5.

 

Repeat the set of 5 rounds until you get do the desired length. I made 35 rounds, but if you want a shorter or a longer skirt or top make more or less rounds.

      I cannot know for sure if you are the author or not because I didn’t get it from your site. But I’m sure that otherwise you did’t had reasons to write me so I mentioned your website as a source and the name of the site is linked to the link that you gave me.

      I did’t had a bad intention, but there are a lot of projects on web with this stitch so I did’t know that you are the author.

      If is anything that I can do let me know
