Peacock Skirt

peacock skirt, summer skirt, free crochet pattern, easy pattern for beginners

This is a free crochet pattern for Peacock Skirt with photo tutorial in each step to guide you in your crochet journey.

When I saw the peacock stitch of  My Picot website, I told myself that I will create a skirt out of this stitch. It will be a beautiful skirt for my daughter. But as I was crocheting using this peacock stitch, since it's summer, why not try to create an adult size cover up skirt instead. This will be a head turner. Love this peacock stitch. Thanks to My Picot for sharing this stitch.

If you are going to create a scarf or shawl out of this stitch, just make it wider and longer according to your need and follow the photo tutorial instruction in My Picot Peacock tutorial.
