The Herringbone baby skirt is the perfect way to dress up an adorable onesie. They seriously make the cutest onesies, but I also feel like a baby in just a onesie is under dressed. Some onesies come with matching pants, but then you need to take those off when changing their diapers. That is where cute little baby skirts come into play. 

The Herringbone Baby Skirt is a beautiful free crochet pattern that is quick and easy. The skirt has simple construciton and the only challenge is getting use to the Herringbone stitch. I have provided a photo tutorial to help teach this special stitch. Sizes 3 months to 24 months included. #babyskirt #babygirl #babycrochet #babydress #crochet #freepattern

The Herringbone baby skirt is a quick project that you can whip up in an hour to an hour and a half. It is so easy to make and you will want to make the little girl in your life one in every color. You can see I have already made three for my little girl. 

I used Red Hearts Baby Hugs yarn for this project because it is so very soft and will feel good against baby’s skin. This is the same yarn I use for my Simply Spring Baby Dress.

This free baby dress crochet pattern is designed to be quick and simple to create for the beginner or expert crocheters alike. The pattern comes in size newborn through 18 months.

I kept the design for this skirt very simple so that it is great for beginning crocheters. The only challenging part of this skirt is the Herringbone Double Crochet Stitch, but don’t worry. If you are not familiar with this stitch I have a photo tutorial for it here.

Crocheting for babies can be so very rewarding. It is a great way to explore the world of garment in making without tackling a huge project like a sweater. The construction is the same as an adult version but if you make a mistake you don’t have to work as hard to undo it. Now on to our baby skirt.

Sizing and Dimensions

This skirt is designed to sit low on the baby’s waist. I provided the measurements of the finished waist band with 1.5 inches overlap where the buttons are. You can adjust the placement of the buttons to make the skirt smaller. I based my sizes off of the Crafty Yarn Council standards, but every child is different so if you have the opportunity I would measure the baby’s waist.

Notes

  • Watch out for the “excepts”
  • I do not count turning chain as a stitch.
  • The way I have written the pattern, the only difference between sizes is the starting chain and the number of final rows. I will indicate Stitch counts for the rows for different sizes. 
  • You will be working a flat piece for the first 4 rows, starting on the 5th row you will slst to the first st of each row to create a circle.
