As leaked in the previous post 2020 Christmas costume for my toddler daughter includes Santa Hat and Santa skirt. The skirt has a special waistline tie to hold it tight no matter how many jumps and runs your baby is planning to make 🙂 The skirt sits well on my daughter and made her want to pose for a photo shot which is quite rare. I hope you like my Santa set and would be happy to hear what you are planning to crochet or knit for this Christmas. Enjoy the project and will be back soon with new patterns.

Baby crochet Santa skirt pattern:
Row 1: With color A, ch 6, hdc in 2nd ch from hook and each remaining ch, turn. (5 hdc in total).
Row 2: Ch1, hdc, hdc blo 3, hdc, turn. Work first and the very last stitch through both loops, other stitches work back loop only.
Repeat Row 2 until your belt reaches desired length. In my case 52 cm.
Join 2 edges with sl st.
At this point we start crocheting in the round. Turn the skirt the right side out.
Round 1: ch2, *1 dc, 2 dc repeat from *. (work in the end of each row as well as in the center of each chain), sl st in the 2d ch of ch-2. Ch2, turn
Rounds 2-10: dc into each st of previous round, sl st in the 2d ch of ch-2.
Round 11: with color B, ch2, *1 dc, 2 dc repeat from, sl st in the 2d ch of ch-2. Ch2, turn.
Rounds 12-13: dc into each st of previous round, sl st in the 2d ch of ch-2.
Cut the yarn and weave in ends.
For the waist tie you can make ch 50-70 or make the one I was showing in the video tutorial.
Keep the seam of the skirt to the side and weave in the waist tie.
