The Acacia Skirt Crochet Pattern was released in early September. I am so proud of this new design, as this is my first skirt crochet pattern. Let me tell ya, it won’t be my last!
This new design has a technique I have never used before, it uses your body type. It can be customized to fit you from your waist to your hips to the body of the skirt! There are also 3 length suggestions inside the pattern that you can choose from or you can crochet it to fit your own custom length.

The name of the skirt is a little different. I used the Wattle Stitch as the main stitch for the body of the skirt. When you think of the word wattle, you think of that fleshy, flabby stuff that is found on roosters or turkeys lol that is not the definition I wanted for the skirt. lol So I looked up the meaning of wattle and that is where I found out the name Acacia. An acacia is a type of flower that can be found in Australia and the branches and stalks are used for a type of fencing or walls. Below is a picture of an acacia flower.
If you don’t crochet or don’t have the time to make one for yourself or family or friends, I would be more than happy to crochet one for you!
