Um, what?

Just don't.

This is one of the "surprise" patterns from Knitty, which might want to take more of an editorial role when accepting submissions. The quality at Knitty has been going ridiculously downhill with the past few issues; it's been a while since I looked at a pattern featured on it and thought, "I would knit that."

The problem with this pattern is twofold: one, knitted skirts are simply a bad idea; and two, the style of this skirt is unflattering. Knitters, bless their enthusiasm, are always trying to push the knitted skirt on us. Why? Why in the name of God would anyone want to use a naturally clingy fabric to clothe a part of the body that most women want to conceal? The only appropriate use for knitted fabric in the skirt department is a lacey shell over a slip. The second problem with this pattern is that the "cut" of this particular skirt emphasizes even further the shape of a woman's hips; why not cut a hole in the bottom of a Hefty, tie it around your waist, and cinch the draw"string"? It would be cheaper.


  • would the skirt happen to have pockets? cus thad be cool.
