Technique: Regular Crochet

Although the skirt can be made alone, if you would like the set as shown in the photo above, here are the links you will need. Be certain to also print your graph for the tank top, in both front and back, in the size you need. The graphs will depict the stripes for the Boricua Tank Top. When using the graphs for the Floral Baby Set, make the back in one solid color and the front using only the center stripe.
