Hi! I'm Sarah Wilson, also known as the Sexy Knitter. I started crafting at a very young age and have tried a little bit of almost everything - sewing, quilting, cross-stitch, needlepoint, embroidery, crewel, plastic canvas, weaving, knitting, crochet, beading, jewelry making...the list goes on. These days, I am a full-time knitwear designer whose work has been seen in publications like Interweave Knits, Knitty.com, Knitscene Magazine, The Knitter, Your Knitting Life, and more! You can find me online at sexyknitter.com, or on social networking sites (like Twitter, Ravelry, and Etsy) as TheSexyKnitter.View all patterns by designer (79) »
I called Fort Worth home for almost 20 years; in the heart of downtown is a 35-block entertainment district home to skyscrapers, exciting nightclubs, elite restaurants, and one of the world's top ten performance halls. Sundance Square holds a special place in my heart as I made many memories within these streets, including my first kiss. The street style is chic and Texas, with plenty of day-to-evening looks and exclusive labels mixed in with the big hair and genuinely dusty boots. Here, I've created a fitted yet comfortable pencil skirt worked from the top down in one nearly seamless piece, with clever shaping at the back of the skirt and knitted-in casings that create a ruched effect when laced with a length of I-cord. Wear it to the office in the morning, then cinch it up a little higher for your night on the town! Note that this skirt is meant to have quite a be worn with 5-6 inches of negative ease, so don't be put off by the tiny finished measurements!
Looking for a bigger size range? Worked at a gauge of 21 sts/32 rounds, the sizes expand to 24 (26, 30, 34, 38) inches at the waist. Remember to leave yourself at least a couple of inches of negative ease!
23 sts/36 rounds = 4 inches in stockinette
