Jane Bennet Skirt

Worsted (9 wpi) ?
17 stitches and 20 rows = 4 inches
3.5 mm (E)

Garner the attention Jane Bennet received from Mr. Bingley in this delightful aline skirt. The ruffles in this design give the skirt unexpected panache when vieweed from behind. A simple elastisized waist makes for a comfortable fit. Stitch the skirt in demure colors to showcase your irresistible femininity, go for a bolder combination like black with cream for an edgier twist, or simply leave off the ruffle altogether. Worked from the top down, it can be lengthed or shorted as desired, providing a versatility that showcases your individual style.

Note: It is important that you take your gauge measurement after hanging and weighting your swatch (as stated in the pattern) if you are adding the ruffles. The ruffles will add weight so you want to adjust for this before stitching the skirt.
