This is the fleece cowl-neck sweater that turned into a skirt. I had grand plans, but the stripes at the top just weren’t creating the effect that I wanted. The bottom, however, was perfect. I ripped back, put a lifeline in place, pulled it off the needles, and voila! The Swirt. And it looked good on, too. This is a very easy knit. There’s some minimal shaping, ribs and color changes to keep you from getting bored to tears, and some eyelets at the top to thread the tie through. You can easily whip this puppy out in a weekend. The most challenging aspect for a newbie knitter is the funky, fleecey yarn.
