Ask your little girl what her favorite piece of clothing is. More likely than not her answer will be that it is a dress or a skirt, and she may also add the word 'fancy' to her description.
Spring Foliage is A-line skirt, constructed from the top down, and finished with a foliage lace hemline.
The pattern is suitable for fingering, sport or DK weight merino yarn. By choosing a fingering weight, your skirt will be light and airy. By choosing a DK weight yarn, this skirt will be perfect for colder months. Sample shown (Size 4T) in Madelinetosh Tosh Sport. A substitute yarn is shown below.
The pattern is detailed enough to be adventurous-beginner-friendly, and at the same time interesting enough to capture the attention of a more advanced knitter as well. If you admired lace before, but never tried it, now is the time to get your feet wet.
