This pattern is currently being reworked and edited. If you purchase the pattern, you will receive the updated version as soon as it is ready - hopefully September!

Knit from the waistband in one piece, this skirt is a great project to try some colour work.

The skirt has gentle increases, an encased elastic waistband and options for either a turned hem, or picot hem, and of course, some ZigZags. A chart is included for this simple colour work.

Choose bold colours to make the Zag really POP, or use a variegated and matching trim for a more subtle Zagging.

A pattern to go with the Zigging Hat also available in an ebook.
