I’m not often demonstrative about my beliefs or my politics, but that doesn’t mean I don’t feel strongly. I believe it is a human right to be the person you wish to be, to love the person you wish to love, and in so doing, to be free from fear and persecution.
I will be watching these Sochi Olympics because I am a patriot, because Canada has some fantastic athletes, and because those athletes are striving to be the people they want to be, and they are deserving of my support. But I will also be watching with a wary and guarded eye, worried about our LGBTQ athletes and their families, as well as the Russian LGBTQ folk who are not free in a great many respects.
Starting February 6 - a day before opening ceremonies - and continuing until February 24 - a day after closing ceremonies - I will donate 50% of each sale of any of my patterns to http://egale.ca/ This organization does great work on behalf of LGBTQ folk, and I especially appreciate their work with youth across the country, and their advocacy for transpeople.
I thank you for your support,
Lynne

Falda is a swingy skirt with flattering elongating lines and fun bursts of colour at the hem. Falda uses three colours of sock-weight yarn in vertical stripes interrupted by gores which give the skirt its A-line shape. The skirt is worked side-to-side, seamed, and then the waistband is picked up and knit circularly. A turned waistband conceals a band of elastic.

Knit this skirt as shown in purple-blue-grey, or use the Falda work sheet included to come up with your own custom version. This pattern generator worksheet allows you to customize the waist size, the length, the number of gores and the depth of the gores to create your own one-of-a-kind skirt.
