here’s my latest creation! it’s a skirt knit out of a cotton/bamboo/linen blend yarn, i picked up for a song at my favorite yarn store. i love the maxi skirt trend, it feels casual and feminine, without the hassles of shorter skirts. i knit this skirt on a size 7 needle, and the fabric is drapey and moves really well.
it’s a bit on the heavy side, but the waist tie holds it up really well. it sits around the hips and is fitted at the top, and flares out at the bottom. i think i’ll be able to transition this into cooler weather, with tights, boots, and a long cardigan with a belt, maybe? anyone? bueller?
it’s machine washable, which is a BIG plus, since i can’t go a day without getting food/spitup/slobbers all over me.
i didn’t follow a pattern, just determined gauge from a swatch, then cast on an appropriate number, did a waistband, and then increased every 7 rows, and did about 6 inches of garter rib at the bottom, if anyone’s interested in my calculations, i’ll post them!
