Kira K Designs is a line of original knitting and crochet patterns with a streamlined and eminently wearable aesthetic. Research on historical clothing, which Kira did during her former career as a theatrical costume designer, is a strong influence on her design sense, and many patterns reference styles from the 1920s through the 1960s. Kira's family history of Danish Modern furniture design is also an important influence on her patterns, resulting in garments and accessories with clean lines and intriguing details that are both interesting to make and easy to wear.

This casual A-line skirt is a great spring and summer wardrobe basic. The body of the skirt is crocheted in the round from the waistband to above the knee in a linked double crochet stitch which creates a solid but flexible fabric. The edging is worked in an openwork pattern of arches and diamonds, creating a subtly scalloped hem. This pattern was originally published in Inside Crochet magazine.
4" = 16 sts and 10 rounds in Linked Double Crochet with larger hook
Note: yarns shown usually knit at 20-24 sts to 4" in Stocking Stitch
