Since making Mason's sweater, I have had an idea in mind for a skirt I would like to make out of Rowan's Denim yarn. I had a hard time finding a pattern that met what I had in mind - so I ended up designing one to meet what I wanted - a trumpet/circle type shape, with an interesting pattern, and a little bit of lace at the bottom.
I used the cable pattern "bubbles" from Vogue Stichionary II for the main body of the skirt. I kind of ended up improvising the lace - mostly because I couldn't find a pattern that fitted exactly what I wanted.
I made a draw-string waist, with an i-cord as the draw string. It was a lot of fun to make - and I am thrilled with the results. I had to wash this before I wore this - because the yarn shrinks before you wash it, and because the color kind of bleeds before you wash it the first time. But, as soon as I washed it the first time, I put it on immediately.-
