The Design

“Beautiful with boots.”

Knit from side to side in one piece and shaped with short-row ‘darts’ at the hip, this simple skirt will become a wardrobe staple. It’s easy to adjust—all you have to do is shift the buttons! Diagonally placed buttons close the skirt with an asymmetric overlap for a flattering A-line. Or place the top button at the waist for a narrower line.

We knit our Wrap Skirt in hardy, sleeper favorite Brown Sheep Lamb's Pride. Spun and dyed in a family owned and operated mill in Mitchell, Nebraska, this worsted-weight yarn is beautifully soft and wonderfully weighty. A blend of wool and mohair, it’s a perfect choice for a warm, autumn skirt.

Darning needle to finish. Optional: US G/6 (4mm) crochet hook to reinforce waistband.

16 sts/24 rows = 4"/10cm in St St on gauge needle, after blocking. Note: Skirt is knit from side to side; stitch gauge determines length, row gauge affects the fit.

For this skirt, the hips are the key to choosing a size that’s comfortable and allows ample cross-over coverage without pulling.

As you choose to round up or down, consider whether you prefer more or less ease (asymmetrical buttoning adds a little more A-line ease at the hip) and whether you like to see a little leg when you walk.
