STITCH GUIDE

Design notes: This skirt is meant to be worn at, or just below, your natural waistline. If you prefer wearing skirts on your hips you may wish to size up and also note that the skirt hem will then fall lower on your leg.

Add length to the skirt by working more rows between decrease rows in the shaping section. Shorten the skirt by working less rows between decreases.
