Knitted cable skirt


A long long time ago I saw this picture of a girl wearing this knitted skirt, and I thought to myself that I had to have that skirt. I tried to find it online but they didn’t sell it any more. I did find it on Ebay but it was way too big for me. So I thought to myself, how can I get this skirt? I first thought about asking my grandma to knit it for me, but then I saw the wool in a store for only 2 Euro per ball and I decided to make it myself. I didn’t do the pockets because that was a little bit too hard for me, since I have just knitted a few scarves.


On the skirt had to be two different patterns. I used two different cables. I first just tried them, see if they would look normal. Then I knit the under part. I did 2 knit and 2 purl for about 2 cm. Then I just kept knitting the pattern that I had made. I used the big safety pin to make the cables. It took me a lot of movies before I had finished knitting.


When I came to the end I started to do the 2 knit 2 purl thing again for about 4 cm. I put the elestic in and wrapped the knitted part around, I secured it with needle and thread. The skirt turned out to be 38 cm ling and 82 cm around the waist. IMG_4154IMG_4149IMG_4148
