‘Round and ‘Round

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).

Upper hip increase

As I approach the upper hip, I’m working “dart” increases — two in the front and two in the back.
