Crochet skirts are great. They can be worn easily by many different body types to create many different fashion statements. Crochet skirt patterns are available for beginners but are also great projects for more advanced stitchers. Today I want to celebrate the crochet skirt by doing a roundup of 100 of the most amazing crochet skirts I’ve seen.
In this roundup you will find one-of-a-kind crochet skirts that someone made and shared in photos around the web. You’ll also find crochet skirt patterns. The 100 crochet skirts in this roundup are divided into ten different categories: freeform crochet skirts, skirts made using a niche crochet technique, bohemian crochet skirts, designer crochet skirts, novelty yarn crochet skirts, most colorful crochet skirts, crochet skirts for kids, matching crochet skirt sets, vintage crochet skirts and finally THE TRULY UNFORGETTABLE CROCHET SKIRTS.
Freeform Crochet Skirts
The ten unique crochet skirts in this section are all made using freeform crochet:

Most freeform crochet skirts are one-of-a-kind items. However, this pattern by Erika Knight that can be found in the book Rowan Farmhouse Knits , shows you how to do a little bit of freeform yourself by giving you a motif pattern and joining options but also lots of choices for making the design your own.
Niche Crochet Skirts
Freeform is just one type of crochet that is unique; let’s look now at crochet skirts that are made using other types of niche crochet techniques:

Bohemian Crochet Skirts
One of the favorite styles that people enjoy when wearing crochet is the bohemian style. The unique crochet skirts in this section are great for that bohemian style:
