Fairies, princesses, ballerinas, there is always magic in the air with little girls. Perpetually dancing, twirling and dressing up, here is the sixth skirt of my fairy skirt series What Dreams Are Made Of.

Using lace mohair in an airy gauge, the skirt is going to be light, fluffy and beautiful, while still keeping her warm!
No worries about seeing through the fabric with this skirt, as it is double layered with very soft ‘loopy’ bottom edge, perfect for everyday wear.

And of course, there are options for sparkles! By choosing a yarn with metallic thread or sequins, or by adding beads while knitting, you will add the right touch to the magic!

The pattern includes:

  • tips on knitting with mohair,
  • tips on knitting with beads,
  • scattered stitch/bead pattern,
  • suggestions to customize the skirt (e.g add flair,…) waist shaping (optional).

Skill level:
The pattern is detailed enough to be adventurous beginner friendly, and at the same time interesting enough to capture the attention of more advanced knitter as well.
