*Note if you choose to make the XL size in a different colorway you will want to choose your UniColor to match your My Melody color. My Melody is made up of 3 colorways, you will want to pick the color way that will be at the bottom of your skirt, in my case it was the Brick color in the Café Oriental Skein so the XLarge size will use a skein of the Unicolor in Brick.
Stitches Used:
Ch: Chain
Sl st: slip stitch
Sc: Single Crochet Dc: Double Crochet

Instructions:
This pattern is written for Sizes S-XL, if you need your size to be larger no worries, just remember you will need more yarn for larger sizes. You will need a multiple of 8 for the band, (IE; for the small 8 x 18=144 chains/dc) once you achieve the amount of chains you will need you will work the band rounds the same as instructed below, just add a few more rounds to yours if you feel its not long enough. After you get your band done you will work the pattern as instructed until you reach the length you desire.
With your yarn and hook make a chain of 144 (160, 176) join with the first ch to make a circle, making sure not to twist the chain.
The Band:
Round 1: 
ch3 (counts as first dc), dc in each ch around, sl st with the top of the ch3. You will have 144
(160, 176) dc
Round 2-4: Ch1 (counts as first dc), dc in each st around, sl st with the top of the ch3. You will have 144 (160, 176) dc
If you feel you need less or more rows for your band then keep working till you reach the desired width.



The Pattern of the Skirt: For all sizes:
Round 5: Ch3 (counts as first dc), dc, ch1, 2dc in the same st as the ch3, *ch3, sk 3st, in next st make (2dc, ch2, 2dc)* repeat from *to* around ending with a ch3, sl st with the top of the ch3.
Round 6-21: sl st to the ch1 sp, ch3 (counts as first dc), dc, ch1, 2dc in the same st as the ch3, *ch3, sk 3st, in next st make (2dc, ch2, 2dc)* repeat from *to* around ending with a ch3, sl st with the top of the ch3.
Now you will work on the part of the pattern to make it flare out and begin the Flower (pineapple stitch)

Round 22: sl st your way to the first ch1 sp, ch3 (counts as first dc), 6 more dc in same sp, total of 7dc, ch3, in next ch1 sp make (2dc, ch1, 2dc),* ch3, in next ch1 sp make 7dc, ch3, in next ch1 sp make (2dc, ch1, 2dc * repeat from *to* around, ch3, sl st with the top of the ch3 (first dc)

You will not join, from now on out you will work in the round without joining. Here is where you will need your stitch marker.
Round 24: in between the first dc and ch1 make a sc (place your stitch marker on the sc to mark the beginning of the round), [ch3, sc in next ch1 sp] 5 times, ch3, in next ch1 sp make (2dc, ch1, 2dc), ch3 *in between the first dc and ch1 make a [ch3, sc in next ch1 sp] 5 times, ch3, in next ch1 sp make (2dc, ch1, 2dc), ch3* repeat from *to* around Ending your round with a 2dc, ch1, 2dc.

Repeat Rounds 30-43 until you reach the length you desire. If you choose to leave it as is you will sl st to the next st and fasten off.
Or
Add a border like I did for mine to give it the points of the Flower (Pineapple stitch). If you choose to make yours using the same border as I did you will need to end your work on Round 39 this should be a few inches shorter than your desired length.
Once you’ve reached the end of Round 39 you will Fasten off.
Border Rounds:
With your hook join your yarn to the second of the ch1 spaces of the 2dc, ch1, 2dc, ch1, 2dc clusters right before the Flower (Pineapple stitch),

Row 1: ch3 (counts as first dc), dc, ch1, 2dc in the same sp, ch3, sk to the first ch3 sp after the sc from previous row make a sc, (ch3, sc in next ch3 sp) 3 times, ch3, in first ch1 sp make (2dc, ch1, 2dc), Turn your work.
