My youngest (she’s 8 years old), asked me to knit her a skirt. This is what we came up with together, she picked the stitch pattern and colour sequence. I was going to knit her a colourful, intarsia cardigan when she was 4 years old, …… ahem, 4 years later, the yarn is being put to use. It is Mission Falls 1824 Wool, soft and warm!
It was knit in the round from the bottom up, good old Feather and Fan stitch or Old Shale – no pattern, just made it up as I went along. The top section was decreased evenly around, then I knit a casing for the i-cord drawstring. The only finishing was to weave in the ends and sew down the waistband casing. She loves it – that’s the best reward!
