It must be just a bit over half a year since I last wore a pair of trousers. Yup, I haven't worn jeans for seven months now. I switched to wearing skirts as that is more flattering for my body type. Now the problem is that I have quite a pile of summery skirts, but not that many for the winter. Encouraged by Amy Herzog that a knitted skirt will look good on me, I set out to knit a skirt that I've had my eyes on for quite a while now.
It's good that I waited as so many knitters have knitted it already. And provided notes on their mods. All I had to do was swatch, measure the length of my favourite skirt, calculate and cast on.
As I used 2 Noro Kureyon colourways, I did try to do mix and match, putting the bluer tones on the k rounds and reddish-pink ones on the CC bits. There were quite a few ends to weave in. And I love the result.
Needles: 4.5mm for the main part and 3mm for the band
Yarn: Noro Kureyon 102 and 250
Verdict: Love. This. Skirt. After 2 days of wearing it, there is no sagging, it holds its' shape really well. Guess what, there's a second one on the needles already.
