The Art of the Skirt

 

More exciting local news....fleece dallas has the privilege of working with local instructor, Sherry Smith.  Sherry has traveled to Europe with Vouge Knitting and studied with such well known instructors as Debbie Bliss, Jean Frost, Sarah Hatton, Sasha Kagan, Martin Storey and Steven West.  She is willing to share her love of knitting with others by offering her pleated skirt class during the month of January and February

 

This beautiful skirt is worked in a fingering weight wool yarn at 7.5 stitches per inch.  It is a firm but lightweight fabric, and is designed to have about 1” negative ease around the waist and hips for a slimming fit. Four darts shape the shape hips, then purl stitches are added between “pleats” to provide flare for the lower edge. Twisted stitches are worked along each edge of the pleat sections for crisp pleat definition. The bind-off produces slight scallops around the lower edge, which add to the overall appeal.
