The Whimsical Waves Skirt is a pattern perfect for confident beginners and intermediate crocheters. You will need to know the basic stitches like Sl St, SC, SC, DC, and TR. The pattern includes photos, notes, tips, and video resources to help you along the way! This is a made-to-measure pattern, meaning that it will fit you exactly how you want it and is size-inclusive. The only measurements needed are the hip measurement and skirt length. (This pattern uses US terminology.)

The Whimsical Waves maxi skirt is heavily inspired by the "fairycore" and "mermaidcore" aesthetics of the 2020s. The "fairycore" aesthetic includes visuals of nature, soft pastels, butterflies, and magic, while the "mermaidcore" aesthetic includes visuals of mythical sea creatures, pastels, and nautical textures. The skirt uses shell stitches, ruffles, and netting-like stitches to embody both aesthetics in the best way. The skirt is also a dream to twirl in because of its wave-like movement and the wide array of stitches and colors.

The skirt is perfect for any season! It is light enough to wear with a short slip or shorts underneath during the warmer seasons, and it can also be worn during the colder months with leggings or a long slip worm underneath. This skirt is so versatile and is THE dream crochet maxi, midi, or mini skirt. <3
