small skill level requirement Beginner

Pattern Description:

The pattern is available as part of the *What Dreams Are Made Of* ebook including 6 fairy skirts plus the Seedling Shrug.



Fairies, princesses, ballerinas, there is always magic in the air with little girls.
Perpetually dancing, twirling and dressing up, here is the fifth skirt of my fairy skirt series - What Dreams Are Made Of.

Using lace mohair in an airy gauge, the skirt is going to be light, fluffy and beautiful. With its short length and full skirt, this is a dream come true for every little ballerina.

And of course, there are choices for sparkles if you wish! By choosing a yarn with metallic thread or sequins, or by adding beads while knitting, you will add the right touch to the magic!

The pattern includes:

tips on knitting with mohair,
tips on knitting with beads,
scattered stitch/bead pattern,
suggestions to customize the skirt (e.g add flare,...)
many hem options (including eyelets, ruffles and lace).
Skill level:
The pattern is detailed enough to be adventurous beginner friendly, and at the some time interesting enough to capture the attention of a more advanced knitter as well.
