Basic Skills Necessary:

  • cast on (provisional & backwards loop both recommended in pattern)
  • increase
  • short rows (optional)

Pattern Description:

Ask your little girl what her favorite piece of clothing is. More likely than not her answer will be that it is a dress or a skirt, and she may also add the word 'fancy' to her description.

To celebrate our 'sugar and spice' girls, Evening Glory is the second design in my lacy skirts series. It is constructed from the top down, and finished with a knitted on lace hemline.

Options:
a skirt with subtle flare
a skirt with extra flare

Gauge:

22 stitches and 28 rows = 4 inches in Stockinette St on US 6 (4 mm) needles

The pattern is suitable for fingering or light sport weight merino yarn. By choosing a fingering weight, your skirt will be light and airy. By choosing a sport weight yarn, this skirt will be perfect for colder months.
