Barbie Month .2 - Basic Ruffled Bottom Skirt

Welcome to day 2!

Today's pattern is a take on yesterdays, with some changes and a new hemline.

You will need:
1 rubber band that fits snug around your dolls waist
4 ply (fingering yarn) in a main and contrasting colour
3.75mm hook

1. sl st to join the yarn to the rubber band, sc 24 times around the rubber band. Join.
2-4. ch1, sc in each stitch around, join.
5-9. ch2, hdc in each stitch around, join
End main colour and join contrasting.
10. ch3, dc twice in the same stitch, 3dc in each stitch around, join.

Skirt complete! Well done. This is a simple pattern that looks great with contrasting colours, and would also look fantastic in stripes.
