Coordinating Skirt

From the pattern description in Interweave Knits, Fall 2004, page 80:
When just a sweater isn’t enough, try adding a knitted skirt for head-to-toe comfort. Mari Lynn Patrick has used a heather yarn in a natural sheep’s brown for a simple pullover and graceful knitted lace skirt to pair with it. The sweater and skirt yoke are worked in a slip-stitch, double-knit technique, which gives the fabric a little extra body. A drawstring around the V-neckline adds a simple decorative detail to the pullover; the drawstring around the skirt’s shaped waist ensures a snug fit.

Finished Size: 36 (40, 45, 50)“ (91.5 [101.5, 114.5, 127] cm) chest/bust circumference.

Yarn: Cascade 220 (100-percent wool; 220 yd [201 m]/100 g): #8012, light brown heather, 5 (6, 6, 7) balls for sweater

Needles: Sizes 6 and 10 (4 mm and 6 mm) and size 7 (4.5 mm): 24-inch (60-cm) circular. Adjust needle size if necessary to obtain the correct gauge.

Notions: Tapestry needle; waste yarn for holding sts; size F/5 crochet hook; markers (m)

Gauge: 27 sts and 32 rows = 4 inches (10 cm) in reverse double knit on size 10 (6-mm) needles; to check gauge, count each st that appears as a purl bump on RS as 2 sts and each ridge on the RS that looks like a garter ridge as 2 rows.

Notes from Interweave Knits:

  • All slipped stitches are slipped as if to purl (pwise) unless otherwise specified.

  • To check that you are maintaining the double-knit k3, p3 rib and double-knit stitch patterns correctly when the stitch count changes due to shaping, the purl stitches on Row 2 should be the slipped stitches from Row 1. Do not slip any stitch for more than 1 row except where instructed to do so for drawstring casing.

  • Selvedge stitches are worked as follows: RS rows: K1 at beg of row, sl 1 wyb at end of row; WS rows: P1 at beg of row, sl 1 with yarn in front (wyf) at end of row.
