Buttoned Wrap Skirt - Brown Sheep Lamb's Pride Version

Buttoned Wrap Skirt - Brown Sheep Lamb's Pride Version

“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.

Pick up the pattern below and choose a color—see the Basic Details tab for the number of skeins you'll need for your size. To see all available colors of Lamb's Pride, head over to the Brown Sheep Lamb's Pride page.

GAUGE

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.
