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 sophisticated skirt is quick to knit, worked in the round from the waistband to the hem. The a-line shape skims your figure without clinging and the lace edging, which is knit separately and sewn on, sways gently as you walk. Rather than sewing in a lining, I suggest layering this skirt over a slip that is a darker color than the yarn.
GAUGE: 4" = 18 sts and 22 rounds in Stocking Stitch on larger needles
