Rosendale is a fun skirt for all ages. It features reverse stockinette with a cable band at the bottom edge. Start with the cable band, pick up stitches, knit to preferred length, then add an elastic waistband. Easy peasy!

Don’t worry, it’s knit inside out to get the interesting texture of reverse stockinette without all that pesky purling.
