There’s something comforting about knitting around and around in stockinette stitch.
For this, my very first skirt, I knitted for 2″ for the waistband facing, purled a round for a turning ridge, then knitted 2″ more for the waistband. I plan to sew the cast-on edge to the turning round, then insert 2″ elastic in the casing so the skirt will grow with me (wink).
As I approach the upper hip, I’m working “dart” increases — two in the front and two in the back.

I will look forward to seeing your skirt. I have knit a few with a yoke that comes to the hip and then a fuller skirt that falls from the hip.
Nice practical colour for a skirt, look forward to the next instalment
