Take your inspiration from a mummy by wrapping yourself in bands of vknitting. This skirt has the look of strip knitting but without any seams. Okay, so there’s one seam: it’s attached to a purchased yoke (the top of a pair of tights, leggings, or running shorts) to avoid the labor and bulk of a knit casing. For added drama, choose the optional contrast points at the hem.
