Stone Maxi skirt. Pattern.

I recall somebody was asking me for the pattern.
Today  I encountered that post:
http://mizrah.ru/post203736434/
and here is another one: http://www.liveinternet.ru/users/elisabet_l/post182579539/


These are not the exact charts, but something close.
Another choice.
Exact chart for in - between parts.
This one I figured out, something close again. If anybody is interested, I can make a chart.
Here is mine. And here.
And here you can buy it for $98.

    1. Nettie, there is no pattern for this one, it's a skirt from Boston Proper website. You can use charts above to try to figure out your own. :)) Measure yourself, make a sample, wash, dry, calculate (allow an inch or more on free fit) and start. it's not that hard as it seems. you also can use a skirt you perhaps already have and like for measurements. Good luck!

    1. Hi Aman, I think I answered your question in another post. All sections are absolutely straight. You do increase when you start a new one. So every next section down is wider then the previous one. That's a beauty of that kind of skirts.

    1. Well, if you google "crochet symbols", images, you'll get all the imaginable symbols with explanations, if that's what you meant. Otherwise, if you can be more specific, I'll help you. Choose a project, I should be able to explain symbols.

    2. Hello Natalia

      I absolutely love your website, you re so talented. I would love to attempt to make this skirt but I have a few silly questions. Does this skirt have side seems or do you crochet in a circle way? also do you start at the bottom or at the top. Sorry for my questions I am just starting to get into more complicated projects and would love to attempt this...all the best Kristina

    3. Hi! None of these questions are silly.I crocheted it in circles, but I turn the opposite direction on every other round (always), because if you don't do that, your work would be twisted to one side. So you do slip stitch at the end of the row, you turn and start another row.
      First, measure yourself and make a diagram on the paper with measurements of all parts of your skirt.
      Make a square motif. Count how many motifs you would need for upper and lower rows. Make adjustments to meet your measurements. You can use smaller or bigger hook for example, or adjust the pattern. Think about how your pattern will connect to square motifs row (you need about the same number of stitches for every row).
      Make square motif rows (both).
      Crochet next part from the edge of first square motifs row,
      Connect with second square motifs row,
      Crochet the edge.
      I made my skirt too tight. I should have planned better. :)
      Don't make my mistake. :)

    4. For some reason edit button doesn't work.


      Think about how your pattern will connect to square motifs row (you need about the same number of stitches for every SQUARE).

      When you are done with square motif rows, crochet upper part starting from first sq.m. row and going up. Then, starting from another edge of that sq.m. row , crochet down part until you have to connect it with second square motifs row. Connect, start the last part from another edge of second sq.m. row.

  10. I know you are probably SO OVER hearing us droolers asking you about this pattern.-smiling- It truly is an exquisite piece. I am actually going to attempt it. I LOVE your suggestion of making a swatch and washing it, drying it and measuring the difference to see what you need to do regarding measuring. THANKS. If you get bored and find out anymore ways to make this pattern let us know meanwhile I'm printing your stuff now to start.

    1. Hi Patrice! I could make a pattern, but it would be against Copyright law. It's not my pattern. :)) I have to look for the square. I don't even remember where my chart is. I am afraid that 's it on this one.

  11. Hello Natalia... I saw where you had "here is mine and you can buy it for $98." I tried to click on the link but nothing happened. I would love to purchase one of the long stone maxi skirts... I could not find them on Boston Proper site either... I saw that someone said they were available there. Can you assist me in getting a skirt like this crocheted long stone maxi? Thank you so much
