Crochet Skirt - Pattern for 5-6 years girl

 I made this skirt for my 6 years daughter. I follow the pattern that a friend from a Crochet group gave me.
Thank you Jenny Thornton. Her blog is Fluff n' Stuff Bowtique. And her Facebook page is Bowtique Fluff n' Stuff




Here is her pattern: 

Skirt pattern Any yarn, any size hook
Abbreviations:
Ch - Chain
Sl St - slip stitch
hdbl- half double crochet
fphdl - front post half double crochet
bphdl - back post half double crochet
dbl- double crochet
FO - finish off

Measure waist Ch to that length, join with sl st in begining chain
Rd 1: Ch 2 hdbl in next ch and each ch around, join in top of ch2 with sl st
Rd 2: Ch 2, fphdl in first hdbl of rd 1. bphdbl in next. continue to alternate fphdbl and bphdbl around. join with sl st in top of ch 2
Rd 3 & 4 repeat rd 2
Rd 5: Ch 2, hdbl in each stitch around, join with sl st in top of ch2
Repeat rd 5 until approximately 1 1/2 - 2 inches above desired length

Ruffle
Rd 1: Ch 3, dbl in same space as joined. Dbl, ch1 dbl in next hdbl and every hdbl around. Join in 2nd ch of begining ch 3 with sl st
Rd 2: Ch 2, dbl in each dbl & ch 1 sp around
Rd 3: Repeat Rd 2 FO

Draw string: Chain double the # in your beginging chain. Weave through rnd 3 of skirt.

If you want the skirt to flare more increase 1 hdbl at the begining of every 5th row.

Here it is my work:

I started with a chain with 95 stitches and I joined with sl st in the first st to make a circle.





Then I made the waistband like Jenny.

Rd 1: Ch 2 hdbl in next ch and each ch around, join in top of ch2 with sl st
Rd 2: Ch 2, fphdl in first hdbl of rd 1. bphdbl in next. continue to alternate fphdbl and bphdbl around. join with sl st in top of ch 2
Rd 3 & 4 repeat rd 2
Rd 5: Ch 2, hdbl in each stitch around, join with sl st in top of ch2
Repeat rd 5 until approximately 1 1/2 - 2 inches above desired length





I made 5 rows for waistband.



Then I made a double crochet in every stitch and I went around. (Jenny made half double crochet).


I alternate blue and yellow for contrast.


I made the ruffle.


Rd 1: Ch 3, dbl in same space as joined. Dbl, ch1 dbl in next hdbl and every hdbl around. Join in 2nd ch of begining ch 3 with sl st
Rd 2: Ch 2, dbl in each dbl & ch 1 sp around
Rd 3: Repeat Rd 2 FO


This is the first row.


I made 3 rows for ruffle.



That's all. It was soooo easy. You'll see.


I made a draw string and I attached 3 flowers.



My daughter was soooo proud at kindergarten with her new blue skirt.
