This graphic skirt will suit a wide variety of figures and clothing styles, and is sizes for tweens and adults. Knit sideways in narrow stripes, short-row shaping creates the full a-line silhouette as well as striking dashes of the main color. The crocheted hem and enclosed elastic waistband make this skirt reversible, with a more subtle striped look on the purl side of the fabric. This pattern was originally published by O-Wool.
4" = 24 sts and 38 rows in Stocking stitch on larger needles, slightly stretched widthwise.
Note: row gauge is more important than stitch gauge for this project, since it is knit sideways and row gauge will determine the final skirt circumference.
