A Skirt For All Seasons- Design a custom-fit “pleated” skirt
Knitted skirts are becoming wardrobe staples—and they’re a lot easier to knit than you might think (they require just three to four skeins of sock yarn)! Learn how to take proper waist and hip measurements and combine them with your gauge to create a “pleated” skirt with a perfect fit, no matter your size. You’ll leave with a personalized skirt pattern for your yarn and gauge.
INTERMEDIATE KNITTING SKILLS REQUIRED; MUST BE COMFORTABLE KNITTING IN ROUNDS, INCREASING, AND DECREASING, AND HAVE A SENSE OF ADVENTURE.
Materials: About 1800 yards fingering-weight yarn, 1600 yards sport-weight yarn, or 1200 yards DK-weight yarn (note: for best results, choose a plied yarn that’s at least 75%wool); appropriate needles for knitting a gauge swatch in the round (double-pointed, twocircular, or magic loop); stitch markers; calculator.
Please wear close-fitting pants (yogapants or leggings are ideal) to facilitate taking measurements. After your swatch is complete you’ll want 24 or 32 inch needles in your chosen needle size (based on the swatch) to get started.
