Pattern Description:

When my beautiful niece, Jordan, graduated from High School I wanted to create a garment that would help her transition from being a "kid" to being an adult, in college, and in the work world. I created Jordan's Uptown Skirt to be a sophisticated garment that would go with just about anything, and would be fun and easy to wear.

The skirt features a high waistband with a braided cord belt. You will learn a great new cast-off method I call the I-Cord cast off. The I-Cord cast off gives wonderful structure to the hem of the skirt. I wager you will be using this cast off method often.

I have been knitting since I was about 7 years old, and, since I contracted RA 15 years ago, my Dr has actually ordered me to knit! (One of the few upsides of the disease.) I hope you enjoy the pattern as much as I enjoyed creating it for you.

Gauge:

14 stitches = 2 inches and 17 rows = 2 inches, be sure to check your gauge and adjust accordingly!

Sizing / Finished Measurements:

  • This is written for a women's size small, you can make it bigger by adding additional repeats of the basket weave pattern, be sure to purchase extra yarn if you make a bigger skirt.

  • Crochet Hook
  • Tapestry Needle

You Will Also Need:

  • 11 oz DK yarn

Preferred Brand/Yarn:

I used Ice Brands Viscose yarn, you could use cotton/linen blends or any

Colorway:

I used a wonderful coffee brown, let your imagination run wild!
