Pattern Description:

I am always looking for projects that use my left over yarns that I accumulate in various amounts, being an avid knitter and all. I also always loved Missoni designs, their crazy color combinations, and their oh-so-famous stripes. The idea to create Missoni-inspired designs has haunted me since last spring, so I finally put two and two together, and got this gorgeous skirt as a result.

The skirt is worked entirely in the round from top down. It begins with a provisional cast on, which is used to allow for a knitted on waistband. There is also an option for short rows shaping to allow for tummies or cloth diapers. The skirt requires very minimal finishing, fun to make and fun to wear!

The pattern is written for worsted weight yarn, but once you understand the principle behind the design, it is very easy to customize for any weight yarn.

Gauge:

19 stitches and 26 rows = 4 inches

Preferred Brand/Yarn:
