For this flirty knitted skirt, Kat Coyle worked the bobble lace ruffle back and forth in rows. She then joined the ruffle into a circle and worked a slimming twisted-rib pattern in the round to the waist. The ruffle's lacy pattern is made by intentionally dropping individual stitches and letting them ravel down to the cast-on edge. A silk ribbon tied into a bow at the back of the top of the ruffle gives the skirt a slight vintage touch.
