Indigo Ripples Skirt
Just in time for the last blue day of Project Spectrum
Comfortable (drawstring!) and cool (fishtail!) - I'm going to live in this skirt this summer. It's knit at a fairly dense gauge, so I'm not worried about that whole sag/droop thing - besides, if it ever does sag or droop or pouch or poof, it just goes in the washer and then the dryer.
Pattern: Kat Coyle for Interweave Knits Spring 2007
Yarn: RowanDenim, in color 225 (Nashville)
Yardage: 8 50 gram balls (about 800 yards)
Yarn Source: Stash.
Needles: 3.5mm Addi Turbo circulars
Gauge: 5.5sts/inch over stockinette
Modifications: changed gauge for narrower skirt; added length to stockinette panel; added length to lace panel for below-the-knee skirt. Worked mirrored double decreases as k3tog and sssk.
The indigo is starting to fade already along the raised decrease stitches:
It's like if you could have your favorite pair of broken-in jeans made to order. Knitted. Denim. Skirts. Who knew that these three great tastes would also taste great together?
