Buttoned Wrap Skirt - Donegal Tweed Version

Buttoned Wrap Skirt - Donegal Tweed Version

“Contemporary style with a tweedy twist.”

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.

Our skirt is reminiscent of iconic British country clothing in the handsomely rugged Tahki Donegal Tweed. A 100% pure wool yarn, Donegal Tweed is spun with coordinating flecks and bits of wool, giving the fabric that signature tweedy look. Your skirt will be sturdy, naturally warm, and beautiful in this rich palette of neutrals, and earth, sky, and sea tones.

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, head over to the Tahki Donegal Tweed 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.
