Enjoy wearing this long Aran knit wool skirt to help keep you warm on cold winter days. The vertical lines really flatter a shapely figure, and the pattern will keep you engaged. The skirt is knit from the bottom up so that the cables will look correct as they are worked. Knit in two pieces with the cable patterns in front and seed stitch on the back guarantees that you won’t sit down and flatten the cables. No worries about your figure, because the vertical cable panels are very slimming, with a large cable panel up the center front with two smaller cables on either side, each separated by seed stitch panels. These cable panels stay the same throughout the skirt, while only the stitches in the seed stitch panels are decreased for shaping.

Note: Gauge and needle information is different for the various sizes of this stunning skirt. Read the pattern carefully to find the right size and appropriate gauge!
