The Spring Flirt Skirt is a figure hugging skirt with a frilled leaf border. The colours of the variegated yarn resembles the early spring leaves and buds with their green and brown colours. The skirt in itself is a solid green that brings out the colour variation of the border.

The skirt is knitted in the round from the border and up to the waist. The two leaf borders are knitted separately before the main part of the skirt and grafted together to form a circle. The stitches for the main part of the skirt is then picked up from the edge of the leaf borders.

The smaller leaf border is a slightly larger adaptation of a leaf border that is widely known and published, by Barbara Walker among others, and the wider border is a more fully grown version of the smaller one with the leaves being bigger and parallel to each other, specially designed for this skirt.

Knitting this skirt should help the greenery to grow outside your window and wearing it should bring out some flirting and a love of the new greenery in you.
