This is the first skirt I designed for my daughters when they were two. They are five now and skirt still fits them but it's getting a bit shorter.
Suwan, is my older twin girl. She happily volunteered to wear her skirt and to post for me here. This skirt has traveled all over the country with us on our cross country trip last year!
The skirt is knitted in round using circular knitting needles. It knitted in 3 tier levels. The second tier has twice as many stitches as the first tier, and the third has twice as many stitches as the second. The edge of the skirt is composed of chain crochet and single crochet.
I blocked the skirt on a towel on my carpet floor. The skirt looked like a big circle with a hole in the middle.
This is one of my favorite skirt because I like the way it hang on the body.
