Row1. crochet hdc in each of the next 10 chain from hook, ch1 turn (10 stitch in total )
Row2. crochet 1 hdc in each of the next 10 stitches from hook ( blo only), ch1 turn (10 stitch)
Repeat row 2 until the ribbed band piece get around 26 inches long or long enough to wrap around your waist line.
After we get the length of ribbed band for your waist size now , we are going to make sc at each stitch or space along the edge of the ribbed band for 1 row, to start the base for the beach skirt. At the end of the row ch3 and turn
After we finished 1 row of sc on the edge of the ribbed band. then we will start to crochet fany lace stitch.
Ch 3, and turn to row of fancy lace stitch row.
Row 1: then skip the first stitch and make 2dc,ch2,2dc all in the same of the next stitch , then
* skip 3 and make 2dc, ch2,2dc all in next stitch* repeat * to * across until end of the row, then you will have 2 stitch left sk1 and make 1dc in last stitch. ch3 and turn.
Row2. now you will make * 2dc,ch2,2dc in the chain space of the previous row* repeat * to * across until end of the row. at the end make 1dc in ch3 space of the previous row. ch3 and turn.
Repeat row 2 until you get 12 inch long for the skirt or your desired lenght and then finished off and leave long tail for sewing.
Lay the piece in flatted and fold the piece in half then use yarn needle to sew along on the side of the skirt and leave the end no sew for open.

I’m wondering how this would fit over the hips to get it on, is it that stretchy? My waist is 27” and hips are 37”. Love the skirt very cute!
Tuesday 6th of April 2021
Hi Cheryl , sorry for reply late The skirt will fit for the hip because it stretchy from the crochet lace stitch.

Hi Jane, how many chains do you begin the rib that will go around your waist? You say 11 chains but that would be way too small and considering that you're folding the skirt in half to sew down the side. Unless you are working 11 chains for the thickness of the rib. Is that it?
Tuesday 16th of March 2021
HI Sylvie, I start with the ribbed band with 11 chain for the thickness of the band then we will crochet the ribbed that long enough to wrap around your waistline.

Hi Jane, I don't understand about 1 long tie chain is for the waist, where would I attach it to secure the waist? Thank you so much

Hi jackie you will chain enough for to wrap around your waist line then you will put the chain on the top edge of the ribbed band so when you wear the skirt will be secure and look perfect fit.
