This skirt is both sexy and comfortable to wear. Knit in the round from the waistband down, it is quick to knit with minimal finishing. The decorative star patterns separating the panels are extrapolated from the star stitch border, and sneakily hide the increases for a smooth line. Choose a yarn that has both body and stretch so that it will skim your curves without clinging or sagging. The slight A-line with flared hem will look good on a wide variety of figures. This pattern was originally published on the website www.knitty.com.
