The Forest Berry Skirt is designed from the elegant skirt-silhuette of the 1930s, which was both feminine and practical.
It’s knit with decorative forest berries running around the hem and up the front, and a fake buttoning. It also has pockets!
The skirt is knit in the round, from the bottom upwards.
It’s designet to wear with a belt, as the recommended yarn, Pickles Merino Tweed, is not very elastic and needs to be kept in place at the waist.
It is very light and airy, and perfect for spring and summer.
It can also be knit in beautiful Pickles Pure Wool.
You’ll loose the gorgeous tweed effect of the yarn, but gain elasticity and you can therefore use it without a belt.
This yarn is also warmer, and will work beautifully for an autumn and winter version
