This seamless crochet skirt begins with a waistband foundation worked sideways, in one step creating a pretty ­ finished edge, holes for threading a drawstring, and a starting round for the solid crochet fabric. Vertical lines of Solomon's Knots act as gores, making a gentle curve at the hip and eventually kicking out the flared hem.
