A few years ago, I created a skirt of my own guessing, for my daughter. She, being a teenager rejected it, so I put it away.
Recently, Knitter's Magazine did a special Skirt issue, which I thought feature some unique techniques, but I've heard different people say "why would you knit a skirt, who would wear a knitted skirt...?"
So, I got this out, it had been years since I looked at it and it being made of cotton had yellowed, so I bleached it, put a grosgrain ribbon in the waistband and took a picture.
I have not decided if I will post a pattern, not sure I can remember what I did to write one, but let me tell you what I like about it: Being created with a bias has a different kind of drape, sort of clingy. The ruffle is right at my knee and has a pretty fun bounce to it. Perhaps because it's a net/lace fabric it's lighter weight than I thought it would be. Awfully fun to sit in, because it just tucks itself around me in it's own modest way. I don't have a slip this length, so I've been wearing it with some of my chiffon skirts, which also ruffle at the knee and feels companionable together. I feel very happy it's summer!
So, my question is: Why NOT a skirt?
