I just can't stay away from skirts. For the summer I am doing a black Hemp skirt with a shell lace edging. I cast on 196 stitches and knitted the lace edging an I am knitting on size 7 needles Now I have to knit up until 16 inches then I can decrease. I will let you know how it goes.
I am going to the Knitting Pipeline Retreat in Peoria this weekend and I am so looking forward to it!
The skirt will not be ready for that event, but I will keep you posted!
This Skirt was a lot of knitting, but it was great Television knitting.
I made it for me, this means, that I have a size 14 waist and the A-line Skirt is created by
4 increases. This waistband was knitted in size 3 and I knitted until it fit me. Then I divided
it by four, which made the increases. Pattern see below. I really loved making the skirt, it
was very nice to have it on my lap during the winter.
Cast on 42 stitches and knit on size US 3 in 1 x 1 rib. I cast on 152 stitches and set my markers
at 38 stitches and then put marker for the decreases. The increases are: kfb before and after the marker.
Increases happen every 6 (6 x) rows, then every 10th row (5 x) . At the required length I used
Kid Silk Haze and continued knitting for 1 1/2 iches in st stitch. Voila ! All done! The Yarn was a DK yarn, which we used for the reconstituted Green Sweater by Elizabeth Zimmerman. Now I have a " Kostuem."
I totally love it.
