"Linen yarn has the added advantage of fantastic drape. This skirt is designed with simple, flared panels of stockinette and reverse stockinette. It feels casual, comfortable, and refined all at once." To combat stretching, the slinky fabric is knitted at a slightly denser gauge than recommended for the silk-and-linen-blend yarn.
Finished Size: 34 (37 3/4, 41 1/4, 45 1/2, 49 1/4)" hip circumference and 26 1/2 (30 1/4, 34, 38, 41 1/2)" waist circumference, before inserting elastic. Skirt shown measures 34" at the hip.
Yarn: Classic Elite Interlude (70% linen, 30% silk; 82 yd [75 m]/50 g): #D20262 latte, 10 (11, 12, 13, 13) skeins.
Yarn weight: #4 - Medium
Gauge: 19 sts and 24 rows/rnds = 4" in St st.
Needles: Size 7 (4.5 mm): 24" circular (cir). Adjust needle size if necessary to obtain the correct gauge.
