Bored of the same old skirt style? Break out of the mold with the Perimeter skirt! This easy to knit, easy to wear skirt is knit in a continuous strip that winds around the body and creates an A-line shape. Flowy, carefree hemp yarn provides tons of drape and style. The elastic waistband feels great and looks great, too! Wear it with tights in the winter or let your legs free in the summer. The Perimeter skirt goes anywhere you do!
