30 Skirts Project- Skirt 1: Machine Knitted Pink Monochrome Stripe Gathered Skirt

Hurray! We have started our “30 Skirts Project”. Our first skirt is a machine knitted pink monochrome stripe gathered skirt.

You can watch the video on how to machine knit this gathered skirt on Anino TV Youtube. You can hand knit or crochet this skirt if you desire.

Although, in the video on Youtube, we used patterned yarn(paintbox by Thomas B. Ramsden) while this skirt in the picture is in stripe pattern, the technique is still the same. We only changed the yarn colour after every 20 rows.
