The Shwin Skirt is a super easy-to-knit skirt for babies and toddlers. Knit in-the-round from the bottom-up, it features wide rugby-style stripes, A-line shaping, a pleated decrease at the waist, an elastic casing waistband and two pockets with buttons.

The Shwin Skirt was designed for Abbey of http://shwinandshwin.blogspot.com (be sure to check out this adorable blog!) and is perfect for any fun-loving little girl (and what little girl isn't?!).

I hope you enjoy knitting this pattern as much as I enjoyed designing it!
