Knitted Skirt Class

Class Description:

The Take-Two Skirt, by Ann Budd, is worked in a fingering weight wool yarn. It creates a firm but lightweight fabric. It is designed to have 0-1” negative ease around the waist and hips for a slimming fit. Four darts shape the hip area; then purl stitches are added between “pleats” to provide flare for the lower edge. Slipped stitches make the “pleats” look more elongated. Twisted stitches are worked along each edge of the pleat sections for crisp pleat definition.

Teacher:
