I’m in a quandary and need your help deciding which skirt to cast on first. Yes, I already have eight skirts, but I find I wear them everyday, especially when the weather is cool. Besides, skirts are much easier to fit and knit than sweaters so they’ve become my go-to projects when I’m traveling (which is a lot of the time!).
On the left is Blue Moon Socks That Rock in the colorway Antequated System. I plan to use this yarn for a repeat of my Putting On The Pleats skirt — there’s too much going on colorwise to add any decorative stitch pattern.
This will be a relative quick knit for me because once I get the gauge of 7.5 stitches/inch, all I have to do is follow the existing pattern.
On the right is Shibui Pebble and Cima, both in the Fjord colorway. Because the fabric will be a uniform color, I can add a stitch pattern to the pleats, as for Take-Two Skirt, Lacy Pleats, or Traveling Pleats, or add a stitch pattern to the gores, as for Tavia.
Either way, this skirt will take longer to complete because I’ll have to design a new pattern.
Please help me decide by responding to this post with your vote! Respond by midnight November 4, and I’ll enter your name in a drawing for a free skirt pattern.
