Flirty

Hi loves,

I test knitted Petra Breakstone's Banks Skirt/Poncho and got the inspiration to make a skirt/top of my own design.

Banks photographed as a poncho.



A little about me and gauge swatches, I hardly ever do 'em. Not because I can't but more because I either don't have the size needle or thread and still want to make the item.   So when I needed to figure out how many stitches to cast on I did a half swatch (how many stitches per inch πŸ˜‚πŸ˜‚πŸ˜‚).

Measured my waist, work out my cast on, cut the amount of elastic band I need... And that's how it all began.

I decided I would do the simple knit stitch to a length that would cover my bum... Then "pretty up" the tail of my skirt... The first attempt was a fail,😒😒😒😒 "bummer this doesn't look like it did in my head"πŸ€”πŸ€”πŸ€”πŸ€”

So ribbit 🐸🐸 ribbit  🐸🐸....... And guess what????

Not sorry I did, as the second attempt 😍😍😍😍.  Though it's just a basic design I am elated it actually looks like a skirt.
