Pattern Description from Knit So Fine: “You’ll find this skirt easy to knit - there’s very little counting involved and the wool/bamboo blend yarn is a treat to work with besides being the perfect combination for a skirt. The ‘bounce’ of the wool causes the stitches to hold their shapes, and the drape of the bamboo imparts a graceful silhouette that doesn’t cling. If you prefer a shorter or longer skirt, simply cast on fewer or more stitches and adjust the number of stitches in the first three marked sections of the row accordingly.”
