looking for a skirt pattern, i am petite at 5'2"
I am seeking a skirt pattern, not a mini skirt. Something simple and comfortable, perhaps a little above the knee. Something that does not hug the body and flares out a bit. Would prefer it to be knit in spring-summer-fall weight yarn.

I've been doing some searches on the internet and it is very overwhelming. I did find this one (graphic picture but am not sure what "cable cast on" means

Anyway, if someone could explain 'cable cast on' and also let me know if they have found other beginner skirt patterns, i would appreciate it... I also don't know how to crochet and this pattern calls for sewing seams crochet style as well as crocheting a drawstring.....

thanks in advance,

Well if you don't want to learn how to single crochet {for the seams} and chain {for the drawstrings}, you can seam up the project using the mattress seam. The profile of the seam would be similar. You could make a twisted cord or a thin i-cord for the drawstring.
May all your projects be frog-less, and all your patterns error-free!
