Nine to Five Cabled Pencil Skirt

Something a little different from me on the blog today….. yes a skirt.

I designed this skirt for Simply Knitting magazine (issue 131) and I loved every minute of the process.  The designing, the playing with cables so that they would form the faux ties at the base of the skirt.  I even enjoyed all the grading maths.

The skirt is knitted using West Yorkshire Spinners Aire Valley Aran yarn (there are some gorgeous colours to choose from, including a lovely deep deep purple).  It is written for sizes 8 – 26, so there are no excuses for not getting your needles busy…..
