I wanted to knit this skirt for about a year now and finally got to it:thumbsup: The designer is our own Kemp aka Cheryl and DivaKnitting on Ravelry. I saw that skirt on her and on Scout52 and was hooked. I ordered the yarn and it sat still in my stash till now. Apparently, i had nothing to fear, since it was such a quick knit. It took me about a month with other projects on the way. On to the details:
Pattern: Twize Skirt by Cheryl ;)
Needles: 5.5mm
Yarn: SWTC Twize (worsted weight bamboo), very soft and lustrous. Great to knit with and not splitty at all despite the plied texture.
Size: Mine was actually M, but based on Cheryl's advice from last year, i knitted S and as you can see on the photos - it's not small on me at all, because bamboo is stretchy.ETA: I also made it shorter, because i'm..hm.. short. So i started the increases right after the decreases.
I found the buttons in an LYS in Haifa and decided that they are going to be on that skirt.

So, without further ado - me, my dog Tyra and the Twize skirt! Photographed near the Jerusalem Biblical Zoo.

I have also knitted the bell curve skirt for my twin. Here is the link http://www.knitty.com/ISSUEwinter07/PATTbellcurve.html

I think we are the same height right? We are 5' and my twin weighs 107. It took 5 skeins to knit. I only did one repeat for the edging at the bottom.

I actually have it in my queue:happydance: Thanks!
I'm 5'3 and weigh 123, so your twin is a few sizes smaller than i am, i guess it will take more yarn:teehee:.

Girl you good! :yay:
That skirt looks amazing on you.

I'm really happy for you that it came out this good. There's no way I would even dream of making this skirt with the little bit of time I've been knitting. But I think I just might print this out just in case I might decide to in the future.

:mrgreen:

Thanks! This skirt is really not a big deal to knit. Once you know how to Knit, purl, increase and decrease, you can go for it. Actually, it applies to all knitting. Good luck:cheering:

I realize that I am many years late for this thread. I found this skirt on Ravelry, but there is no link to a pattern. I also realize that this particular yarn is no longer available. Does anyone still have this pattern, though? I would love to try to substitute yarn to make this beautiful skirt.

Cheryl Kemp used to be a mod here in the KH Forum. In fact, several mods moved on from here to become designers! You can find her on Ravelry, and send her a message, to ask for the pattern straight from the source. It's what I would do!
