The Design

“Sass up your stride!”

We love seeing knitwear in current fashion magazinesso when this beautiful knit skirt caught our eye in an Autumn spread, we had to know more. Ribbing with a generous sassy split, turns out it was a dress from AG. But it so reminded us of our Ribbed Pencil Skirt. Pressed out from hip to hemline for a smooth fit that skims the hips without clinginga wardrobe classic with an update!

Our version is knit in Brooklyn Tweed's Arbor, a firmly spun DK-weight that's warm and woolly, yet light enough for year round wear. Skein-dyed at the Saco River Dyehouse in Maine (in thirty colors!), Arbor's worsted-spun round composition creates great stitch definition and firm fabricperfect for ribbing, perfect for skirt fabric.

Two rectangular panels are knit separately. A simple folded waistband and a stretch of elastic finishes up the comfortable waist. Swatching is never more vital than in garment knitting, so read our swatching, seaming and size information in the Knitter's Notes tab.

An updated classic with a functional and sassy slitwe bet you won't make just one!
