I made a skirt!

Pattern is Skating Queen, available for free here. Fairly simple pattern to get a sort of pleated effect.

Yarn is Drops Cotton Viscose by Garnstudio, in a dark grey. I like this yarn a lot, nice to knit with (at least compared to other cotton blends I’ve used before) and has a nice shine. Skirt pattern is written for a wool yarn and my skirt turned out a little on the heavy side, but it’s got a nice drape so I’m happy with it :)

So cute!  Saw this posted on StitcheryWitchery’s blog and you inspired me.  I just ordered some Cascade 220 yarn to do this project (a birthday gift for my sis, hopefully).  Way to go!

That’s awesome! Thank you :)

A word of caution: my skirt is in a cotton/viscose DK yarn where the pattern calls for wool sport weight yarn, and Cascade 200 is worsted weight? Just make sure that the fabric you’re producing is what you’re after for your skirt.

Happy knitting!
