Baby Buttercup Skirt

Designed by Isela Phelps

My inspiration for this little skirt is clear, it is my little darling girl. Lately, I have been dreaming up little knits for her to wear. 

LOOM:Premium’ Round Loom Set,  or All-n-One Loom, 80 pegs

YARN:  approx 140 yards of worsted weight mercerized merino wool. Red Heart Chic Sheep in Green Tea

NOTIONS: knitting tool, tapestry needle, crochet hook size H (to crochet the chain to use to cinch the skirt)

GAUGE: 9.5 sts x 15 rows= 2 inches in stockinette

SIZE: 6-12 months

NOTE: Stitch pattern is over 10 stitches, to make a smaller/larger size, use a knitting loom with a multiple of 10 pegs



k=knit stitch or u-stitch (not ewrap)

p=purl stitch

cdd=centered double decrease. Over 3 pegs. Move loops to the sides to the center peg. Example: Peg 3-Peg 2- Peg 1, move loop from peg 1 to peg 2.  Move loop from peg 3 to peg 2. When working the centered peg, treat all loops as one loop.

yo=yarn over





Cast on 80 sts, join to work in the rnd.

Rnd 1 and Rnd 3: k to end of rnd.

Rnd 2 and Rnd 4: p to end of rnd.

Rnd 5: *k1, yo, k3, cdd, k3, yo; rep from * to end of rnd.

Rnd 6: k to end of rnd.

Rnd 7: *k2, yo, k2, cdd, k2, yo, k1; rep from * to end of rnd.

Rnd 8: k to end of rnd.

Rnd 9: *k3, yo, k1, cdd, k1, yo, k2; rep from * to end

Rnd 10: k to end of rnd.

Rnd 11: *k4, yo, cdd, yo, k3; rep from * to end

Rnd 12: k to end of rnd.

Rep Rnd 12: until panel measures approx. 7-inches from cast on edge.

Next 5 rnds: *k2, p2; rep from * to end

Bind off with basic bind off method.



Crochet a chain that is approximately 22 inches in length.


Pass the chain through the ribbing section of the skirt, skipping over the purl stitches (see pictures below). Make a knot at each end of the crochet chain.

Weave all ends in, block lightly.

  1. What a cutie pie! The perfect model for this adorable little shirt. Question, the 80 peg loom you are referring to, what is the gauge?

  2. A question that I hope you can answer here even thou it is not about this beautiful skirt
    I was wondering if you have made video 3and 4 on the new sock loom and if so where can I find it
