Kea Lani Skirt

Posted: July 16, 2020 by admin

Introducing the Kea Lani Skirt Pattern my latest FREE crochet pattern! This pattern was inspired as I had a desire to create a fun and flattering summer skirt to use as a beach cover-up. During the designing process, I realized the Kea Lani Skirt can be worn year-round. It would look great at the beach or poolside but also would look great over leggings in the Fall or Winter. I had an amazing group of women that helped me test this pattern so it’s available in Women sizes from XS – 5X. You can find the low-cost PDF paid pattern in my Shop HERE, or on Etsy HERE & Ravelry HERE.

I used cotton yarn and I realize cotton yarn can be tricky to buy online. Two of my favorite cotton yarns are from WeCrochet. I really like CotLin and Dishie Yarn as they are available in a range of sizes and don’t pill.  I also used my Furls Odyssey Hook for this project! I’m in the process of making a child pattern for the Kea Lani Skirt pattern so be on the lookout & sign up for my Newsletter to get the latest pattern releases.
