After making and wearing my Rowan Denim skirt last spring,
I knew that I would love to have another one (or more).
A discontinued cotton blend de-stash was purchased with a skirt in mind, and a lace edge that I had been playing with (as a sweater hem) since 2016 found its true home.
The skirt was smashing.
With a little adjustment to the prototype pattern, the skirt is now written to be knit with a currently available and slightly lighter-weight yarn, Rowan Creative Linen.
I shared my progress on our Shakerag Zoom gatherings; it became a KAL test and was named for the event that has bound us all together.
An overview of the pattern and options:
Cast on at the hem, the scalloped and lacy edge creates a beautiful, yet not too fussy border.
The A-line is flattering to many shapes, but you can knit this as more of a pencil shape if that’s your style.
Short rows can be added to drop the back hem, and again below the waistband, to raise the upper back, for hug and flow over your curves.
The skirt top ends with a self-turning waistband casing for elastic, creating comfort and a little more fit.
The pattern is written to Standards, but who is shaped just so?
There are notes to adjust for many sizes and can be made with little, no, or however much ease you want and is easy to make a custom fit.
