Hello everyone, hope you’re all doing well out there in these crazy times. It hasn’t been easy, but it has given me more time to bring you this Crochet Velvet Skirt project to share with everyone 🙂
If you’ve ever wanted a beginner friendly crochet skirt pattern, your day has come!
These velvet beauties are sooo comfortable, you’ll love wearing them. They might be a little too cute for sitting in quarantine, but I have the velvet pants pattern covered for your lounging needs.
We’re gonna get through this in style and comfort!!
These patterns are as always free, so we can keep crocheting together regardless. If you’d like to support me and these free patterns, or you just want the premium PDF pattern, you can also find this and many more for purchase on my Etsy, Ravelry and Lovecrafts.

Note: For the waistband, we’re going to use the color B
Row 1 : ch 13( 13, 13, 13, 13, 13 ), hdc into second ch from hook and each ch across. Total of 12( 12, 12, 12, 12, 12 ) hdc
Row 2 : Turn, ch 1 ( do not count as a st ), 1 hdc into each st across. Total of 12( 12, 12, 12, 12, 12 ) hdc
Row 3 – 66( 70, 76, 82, 88, 96 ) rep row 2
The end of row 66( 70, 76, 82, 88, 96 ) cut the yarn and leave an 8-10″ long tail, then use that tail to sew the edges together to form the waistband, using any method you like ( Check picture below )
- For the body, we’re going to use the color A
- Make sure to place the stitch marker into the first stitch in every round.
- For round 1 only, we’re going to crochet into the end of each row of the waistband ( sp for reference )
Round 1 : Add new yarn into the waistband anywhere you like, then ch 1 ( do not count as a st ), 2 hdc into the same sp that you just added new yarn, 2 hdc into each sp around. Total of 132( 140, 152, 164, 176, 192 ) hdc ( Check picture below )
Round 2 : 1 hdc into each st around. Total of 132( 140, 152, 164, 176, 192 ) hdc
Round 3 – 32( 34, 38, 40, 44, 46 ) rep round 2
*If you want a shorter skirt, just make less rows. If you want a longer skirt, just keep repeating round 2
The end of round 32( 34, 38, 40, 44, 46 ) Cut the yarn and weave all the ends ( Check picture below )
For the drawstring, I’m using 2 strands of yarn and crocheting them together. Then make the ch until you have around 50-80″, long enough to wrap around your waist and tie the drawstrings.
To add the drawstring, work it through the waistband in and out, making sure its even top to bottom and lines up with the inseam.
