Vertical Ruffle Skirt

This reverse stockinette skirt is perfect for many occasions. It can be elegant with hose, or practical and cosy with thick tights and boots. The front ruffle gives it a very now feeling, and is easy to make.
The skirt is knee-length but easily adjustable in length. It features a folded waist with elastic to hold it up.

Design notes
Edging: The edges of this garment are designed to curl. If you don’t want that on the bottom, you can add a folded hem.
Yarn: Should be yarn with lots of drape. I advise alpaca or a mixed yarn with silk or plant-based yarn to add drape. A 100 % merino with lots of bounce might be less suitable.
