Lacy Skirt With Bows
Pattern Source: Greetings From Knit Cafe – Suzan Mischer
Pattern: Lacy Skirt With Bows – Kat Coyle
Yarn: Brown Sheep Cotton Fleece in Victorian Pink – 3.75 skeins used
Needles: US #6 – 32″ circular Knit Pick Options
US #5 – 24″ Inox Express circular
Gauge: 5 stitches/per inch – on smaller needles
Modifications: There were no major modifications other than the fact that I knit in the round instead of knitting the back and front separately. I began by knitting 24 rows of all six panels separately. Then I connected three panels for the front, and then three panels for the back, and after finishing another 24 rows of the lace for both sides, I connected both the front and back panels together and began knitting in the round. And of course I used ribbon instead of another yarn for the bows.
Thoughts: My favorite skirt so far! The fit is beautiful, the color is awesome, the yarn is extremely light and works well with the TX heat. I would definitely make another one, maybe one in black for more formal occasions. It was also an amazingly quick knit. I started this project in the wee hours of the 17th, and lightly blocked it last night, so just under four days I was able to finish it. This is my second Kat Coyle skirt and I have to say that her designs are so feminine without being too overpoweringly “girlie.”
Conclusion: Lacy Skirt with Bows – I love you!
