Free Adjustable Seashell Skirt pattern

Well, it finally happened.  After years of debating, and 4 crochet patterns later, I made a skirt.  I've started crocheting a skirt multiple times, but was never satisfied with the outcome.  It was too boxy, not girly enough, not lacy enough, etc. etc.  So I created my own pattern.

This pattern is not for the faint of heart, and this is the first time I've tried to make a pattern that fits everyone (written pattern is for size 8).  So I've either succeeded or failed miserably.  But this is an untested pattern, so proceed at your own risk ๐Ÿ˜Š


**As always, I wrote this pattern, so please don't sell the pattern or the final product.

  2. It meant treble crochet, but I’ve since made the changes to reflect the correct abbreviation of TR. thank you for bringing it to my attention ๐Ÿ™‚
