Your creativity will have a free run
when deciding which yarns to choose for this gypsy skirt, knitted entirely in stocking stitch. The only important thing to remember is that all the yarns should be able to produce the same tension. If you use some highly textured or very fluffy yarns, keep them for the lower parts of the skirt for a more flattering look.

Finding seven perfect yarns gives you a wonderful chance to express your feelings about interesting colours or a combination of colours and textures. To heighten the effect, add a crochet trim at each colour change and around the hem or add braid, lace, bobbles, metallic yarns or ribbon.

To make a shorter skirt, decrease the number of rows in each tier or work less rows in the first section using colour A.

You are given multiple attempts at downloading the pattern file within a 48 hour period. If after this time you have a problem and don't end up with your pattern, email us and we'll sort it out. We will answer emails within 24 hours, and normally much quicker, but please allow for time zone differences.)
