Candy Cascade

And she’s done! Fortunately, my husband was able to buy additional skeins of the same yarn on a recent trip to Singapore 🙂

My daughter was initially ambivalent about it, the skirt does feel like it looks – frilly and bulky. But she got used to it after a while 😀 The challenge is that the drawstring type of belt loosens up while she’s active so I might have to experiment with something sturdier.

Meanwhile, I’m planning to make one for myself in a single color, maybe black or gray or deep red. This would be lovely worn over black leggings 🙂 As well, it is rather bulky and definitely has some weight, so I might experiment with lighter yarn next time.

Here’s the pattern link if you’re interested.

How about you? What loveliness are you crocheting?

    Super cute! It does seem REALLY bulky though. Did you use cotton? Or worsted weight?

    I think the skirt and the belt is unique and darling. I understand your concern about the best on an active youngster. I don’t crochet, but I wonder if an adjustable (with hooks or buttons) 1″ tape waistband could be sewn to the inside. Hmm…

    I don’t know how to crochet, but I am making a slouchy hat on a round loom. The skirt is super cute. You are quite talented! 🙂

      Thank you so much for your kind words 🙂 I’m really still a beginner at crochet, still so many things to learn. But I enjoy it so much ❤

      I'd also like to be able to make a slouchy hat. But using a round loom is something new to me. (Somehow the loombands craze comes to mind). Maybe I should look into that too 🙂

  8. So cute! Love it! I think it would look striking in Red or Gray. Awesome. Maybe a crochet cord of some kind for the belt? I am not crocheting anything at the moment, but I am itching to crochet another Spice of Life blanket 😉

      Thank you so much Ginny 🙂

      In the meantime we’ve found out that the tie holds much better if placed in the front instead of on the side. It allows the skirt to sit higher on the waist that way. I also think that a cord could indeed be a better alternative, and easier for me to make as I still have some yarn left over 🙂 Let’s give that a try!
