Barbie Month .5 - 2 layers of ruffles

Day 5! Welcome!

Hope everyone is keeping up so far and enjoying the new patterns.
Today we have a little skirt that has some simple ruffles. Super cute and pairs well with most tops.

You will need:
4ply (fingering yarn) in main and contrasting colours
1 rubber band that snugs your dolls waist
3.75mm hook.

1. Join yarn to the band with a sl st, sc 24 arounf the band, join.
2-5. ch1, sc in each stitch around, join.
6. ch2, dc back loop only in each stitch around (this creates a ridge to add the ruffles too), join.
7. ch1, sc in each stitch around, join
8 and 9, repeat rounds 6 and 7
10, ch1, sc in each stitch around. Finish and weave in ends.

Join contrasting colour to a front loop left from round 6 with a sl st, ch2, hdc in the same stitch, then 2hdc in each front loop around, join, end off.

Repeat on the front loops from round 8.

Skirt is complete :)
