A beautiful skirt for a little girl. Made from Hemp yarn, it should be a nice skirt to wear through Spring and Summer. This one took a while to knit but turned out very nicely. The yarn was quite firm, both as yarn and as fabric, but it softened nicely once washed.
Pattern: Hip in Hemp by Gudrun Johnston
Yarn: Elsebeth Lavold Hempathy
Needles: 3.0 mm and 3.25 mm Knit Pro
Started: March 22, 2011
Finished: April 18, 2011
Mods: Worked this skirt with 8 rows of the brown yarn and 4 rows of purple and 4 rows of yellow-green. Made it so that the waist band joined together at the front leaving a gap on the outside for a tie be put through.
Comments: This was a real change of pace, 4 ply on 3.25 mm needles is pretty usual here, but not for the amount of yarn in this project! Don't think I'll be making another skirt in such a small ply yarn again. Nothing wrong with knitted skirts, just will use fatter yarn next time!
