“Trials and tribulations, I’ve had my share. There ain’t nothin’ gonna stop me now ‘cuz I’m almost there!” – I’m Almost There from Princess and The Frog
This is a fabulous skirt. Quite easy, actually, once you’ve figured out the waistband and finaggled the intricacy of a 90-degree knit lace bottom. Kudos to the designer, Monika Sirna, for such an enjoyable knit. The majority of the piece is knit in stockinette stitch, which is a “take me anywhere and knit me” kinda project (and don’t we all love that?). The lace is knit at a 90-degree angle to the bottom and knit around the skirt’s circumference, attaching as you go! Genius, really.
Here’s an almost finished product. Only thing left is to close up the waistband and block. I’m really almost there!
This only means one thing…
ON TO THE NEXT!
