This skirt was inspired by architectural cross-section drawings showing hidden layers under the facade of a building, but it also brings to mind skirts from the early 1920s, when ladies’ calves were suddenly visible under shockingly (for the time) short skirts. The inset pleats add intriguing detail and movement to this very wearable skirt. Choose a yarn that has some stretch and memory so that your skirt will hold its shape.

GAUGE
4” = 20 sts and 30 rounds in Stocking Stitch with worsted weight yarn on largest needles
4” = 21 sts and 30 rows in Stocking Stitch with fingering weight yarn on medium needles
Note: this gauge with a fingering weight yarn will produce a sheer fabric.
