Adorable Short Skirt For Toddlers & Girls Easy Knitting Pattern


- A skein of worsted weigh yarn such as Lily Sugar'n Cream Yarn: Ombres, Summer Splash or fingering weigh yarn like Lion Brand Yarn 240-205L Sock-Ease Yarn, Cotton Candy or yarn of your choice (about 5 oz). Best to use washable yarn though.

- 16 and 29 inch-circular knitting needles US # 6 or 8 depending on your yarn.

- approx. 20 inches of a 3/8 inch-width elastic waistband

- Tapestry Needle

- crochet hook for lacy edge if preferred


Knit a small 4x4 inches- swatch to check for gauge.

Write down number of stitches per inch.

Measure a waistline of a person who will wear this lovely skirt. (waist line length X number of stitch per inch = total stitches for casting on). If you were unable to measure the waist circumference directly, you can cast on about 18-20 inches for 2-4 years-old and 20-22 inches for 4-6 years-old. Or you can use this Standard Size Chart to determine the size you need.

Joint the yarn and make sure not to twist it. Place a paper clip, scrap yarn or a stitch marker at the beginning of the row to mark where the row begins. Slip a marker onto a needle when you begin a new row.

Begin to knit in a circle as follow;

Row 1-5 : K

Row 6 : p

Row 7-20: K

Row 21 : p

Row 22 : Increase Row, change to the longer needles *yf, k1; Repeat from * to the end.

Row 23 : P

Row 24 : k

Next row K until desired length or almost the end of yarn leaving enough for cast off and edging. (About 10 times the circumference of the edge of skirt.) Bind off. Don't cut yarn. Finish off the edge with chain stitches and single crochet around the skirt as follow;

*Ch 5, 1 SC* into the third stitch; repeat from* to the end. Cut off yarn.

Finishing the waistband

Cut an elastic band equal the length of the waistline and sew the both ends together with regular needle and thread.

Place the elastic band on the wrong side of the skirt. Fold the first 5 rows over the elastic band and begin to sew (with tapestry needle and left over yarn) the cast on row with the 11 rows to form a tubular band. Continue to the end. Cut yarn leaving a few inches behind. Weave the yarn between the stitches to secure. Make a long chain string and attach to the front for a bow.

If you don't crochet and prefer not to have a bottom edge, you can just skip it. Do 4-5 rows of garter stitch (k 1 row, p 1 row) instead.

It'd been awhile since I knitted this skirt. The pattern wasn't written down and I just pull it of my head. So I hope I don't miss anything.

Let me know how it turn out or upload a photo and share it with other visitors.

Knitting Abbreviations Used In this Easy Knitting Pattern are;

k = knit

p = purl

yf = yarn forward

ch = chain

sc = single crochet

* = repeat in *_* as directed
