Have you ever wanted to try fair isle? This skirt is a great opportunity to experience two-color knitting! Worked flat from the ribbed hem up, the skirt has just one center back seam, and is finished off with a twisted tie at the center waist or a twisted yarn rope belt.
Pair the skirt with leggings or tights and a tee shirt or sweater, and you've got a cute little combination!
The pattern includes instructions for four different designs, my tips for doing fair isle knitting, and a bonus striped mitten pattern!
