Yarn inspiration for this crochet skirt pattern.

I wanted a fast project, so I decided against lightweight yarn like fingering weight, sock weight, and so on. For this beautiful crochet skirt pattern, I have used #4, worsted weight yarn as it works up so quickly and does not end up being super bulky. I would advise that you also use a similar weight of yarn when making yours. All of my Testers used #4, worsted weight yarn in making their own beautiful versions of this skirt.
