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

Size: Small

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!
