I knit the front and back lace panels and then joined to work in the round. i kept 1 purl stitch at the seams. i shortened the skirt slightly and knit at a looser gauge. i also threaded satin ribbon through the eyelets and tied only 1 bow. i handwashed the skirt and threw it in the dryer for 15 minutes and then lightly blocked and let it finish air drying.

i love how lacy and swingy this skirt is. it's very comfortable. i really like the cotton/hemp yarn. it has wonderful drape and is fairly soft. at the gauge i worked at, it wasn't hard on the hands. i would use it again for summer wear.

now if only it would warm up so i could wear it.

  1. You are on a roll with the FOs! The skirt is lovely. It's really flattering, and the color is a great choice for a spring/summer skirt. I've had a couple of knit skirts in my queue for a while; maybe I need a knit skirt, too.

  7. Looks great! Kinda reminds me of the Indigo Ripples Skirt, but with a ribbon and slits. Also reminds me that I *still* haven't done a FO post on my Indigo Ripples Skirt. :P
