Lets not forget our manners knitting ladies! Thank you for the free posting of this pattern. It would be helpful to include the size of the child knitted for.

Hi Guys, I'm Ratcha, the designer. The size for this skirt is for 4-6 years old. With a waist of 22" it might be able to fit an 8 years old. To make the waist larger - add 5 sts per inch. Then follow the rest of the instruction.

I love this pattern but I wish I knew what size it was? How can you post a pattern with no size. My almost 10 year old granddaughter would love this in rainbow .

Hi there, I've reached out to the designer of this pattern and will update the project when I have more information. Thanks! - Julia from FaveCrafts

Hi,If you want to make this skirt for your 10 years-old granddaughter, I would suggest CO 105 - 110 sts and then follow the same instruction. You just have to ignore the final stitches mentioned on each tier because your will be different./There are also other skirt patterns you might want to take a look at before deciding to make this one.

Sorry the link got cut off http// == ren-Knitting-patterns.html

I guess we'll have to knit a swatch and figure out the size on our own. Anyone yet try it?

I to would love this pattern if it had sizes on included. As it is now it will not help me at all. What a shame because it looks wonderful.

Like all of the other comments: What SIZE is it or does it come in? My great nieces would love this.

like everyone else what sizes does it come in


Like everyone else, where is the size information?

I would love to do this pattern, however,just like everyone else I would need to know the size and size variations.

Great pattern, but I also would like to know for what size it is for? Have a 4 yr old granddaughter who would love this skirt.

Great pattern, but what size is this for? Are there variations in the pattern for different sizes available?
