Fall is upon us and that means that knits are coming out of the closet, and you better bet this skirt is going to be one of your go-tos. With a thick double brim band (with an encased elastic sewn in), and a cascading empire skirt, the best part of this pattern is left for last. At the bottom you’ll find a gorgeous peek-a-boo section of eyelet lace that shows off just a bit of the calves. Put your mind on hold, as you get to relax with this one. 

Knit top down, in the round, and seamless, this pattern is written in nine sizes – XS (S, M, L, XL) (2XL, 3XL, 4XL, 5XL). This skirt was designed with 0-2 inches of positive/neutral ease for the waist and 7-9 inches of positive ease for the hip/bum. When picking your size, go off your natural waist measurements – where it is the smallest. If you are in between sizes, I would suggest going down. Model pictured is wearing the size M and is 5’7”, 142 pounds and has a waist of 31” in circumference, for reference.

Knit in the round, seamless.

XS – 23-24” waist, 33-34” hip
S – 25-26.5” waist, 35-36” hip
M – 28-30” waist, 38-40” hip
L – 32-34” waist, 42-44” hip
XL – 36-38” waist, 46-48” hip
2XL – 40-42” waist, 52-53” hip
3XL – 44-45” waist, 54-55” hip
