Notes

  • This skirt is worked in the round, from the hem to the waistband.

  • Skirt can be worn with the beginning of the round falling at the back or on the side.

  • To lengthen or shorten skirt, add or subtract rounds worked between the first decrease rounds. Use your gauge (rounds per inch) to determine how many rounds you wish to add or subtract. If you lengthen the skirt you may require additional yarn.
