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 (be sure to check out this adorable blog!) and is perfect for any fun-loving little girl (and what little girl isn't?!).
