Product details

This sideways-knit skirt evokes thoughts of sand, sea, and summer skies with just the hint of clouds. Your favorite girl will love having a cotton/linen skirt perfect for playing at the beach or at home!

The skirt is shaped at the knee with short-row gores. Short rows are a quick and easy way to change the shape of a knit garment without having to work in increases or decreases. You will knit part of the row, then turn your knitting around and knit back across the stitches you just did. Unlike some short row patterns, you should not wrap the turned stitch here; the eyelet created by turning the work without the wrap is deliberate and decorative.

This skirt pairs nicely with the Beachwalker Top, also available from Katherine Vaughan Designs. Both patterns were originally published in Love of Knitting, Summer 2010.
