Light Orange Mid-Length Skirt

by Nico

I simply love this mid-length skirt, it is so feminine, simple but chic. It has some ruffles at the bottom. The yarn I used is a very thin one (Nm 1/15) in 2 threads, a very warm light orange cotton yarn that was a pleasure to knit with. The skirt is knitted in one piece, sideway, on my standard knitting machine using only the main bed. I knitted it for myself (size S) so the instructions are for size S, but you can continue knitting if you are a bigger size. I provide this standard machine knitting pattern for free and you can download it right away.

    Hi! I downloaded your pattern and I was wondering what you do with the waist. Do you let it roll or do you make a hem and put an elastic in it? Also, do you know approximatly how much yarn it takes? Thank you very much for your answer and for such a lovely pattern. Good and cute machine knitting pattern are so hard to find!

      Hello Caroline

      The instructions for the waist band you can find in the pdf (the paragraph close to the end). I used an elastic through the hem. I did not weight the cone of yarn before and after knitting the skirt so I do not know how much yarn to use. I recommend you buying a cone of 0.5 kg (1.1 lbs) or 1 kg (2.2 lbs) and that should be more than enough, you will have yarn for other garments too.
      Thank you for your appreciation.
      If you have any other questions, go ahead and ask :).

      Have a nice day,

        Hi again!
        I’m sorry, I tought these instructions were for the bottom edge of the skirt. But then, do you do the same edging with the bottom but without the elastic?
        Thanks a lot!

      For the bottom you do not use elastic at all, you just follow the instructions given and you will see the ruffles will form. The ruffles are formed due to the R23-R29 sequence.

      You have to add the pattern to cart and finish the ‘purchase’ like usual, except that this purchase will have $0 value. Then you will receive the download infos on your email address.

      Let me know how it goes.
