202 Cutaway Skirt

"This skirt," begins Dulaney, "was inspired by architectural cross-section drawings showing hidden layers under the facade of a building, but it also brings to mind skirts from the early 1920s, when ladies' calves were suddenly visible under shockingly (for the time) short skirts. The star increases and inset pleats break up the span of stocking stitch and add intriguing detail. It is designed to be worn a few inches below the natural waist. Choose a yarn that has some stretch and memory so that your skirt will hold its shape." Becoming, smart, and fascinating to knit. Includes a marvellous schematic showing the low, centred kick pleat on the back and the higher, off-centre one on the front. Largely knitted in the round from the waist down.
