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:

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:

I loved that skirt but love this crochet fringe skirt even more; it comes with a matching wrap as well. It was published in a 2007 issue of Crochet! Magazine.

    @CrochetBlogger Oh, wow! Would show these to my daughter, but I don’t have time to make one right now…guess she’ll have to make her own:0)

      @yarnmaniac Always better to teach someone to crochet than to do it for them anyway right? :)

      • yarnmaniac Reply

        @CrochetBlogger Definitely! Besides, she has a tiny figure…shouldn’t take her long;->
