Kristin Omdahl’s signature swirls form the hem of this swingy A-line skirt. Work the motifs first, then begin working the skirt in the round from the top of the motifs up to the waistband, which sits at or just below the natural waist. Piping accentuates the contrasting swirls and unites the colors with the main skirt. This skirt is fun and easy to both make and wear, and the easy-care Eco-Ways yarn lets you machine wash and dry.
