A-line skirt KAL
I will try it.......there is a pattern in Vogue knitting from this winter. THe only thing is when I took my waist measurement the pattern doesn't go big enough for me! :(
If it turns out well enought I think I'll take it to a tailor for the zipper installation.

I'm doing the flirty skirt in emerald green. I'm almost done! I'm working on the pleats as we speak. I think it is going to be pretty. I will model it when I'm done.

It's an easy pattern. I would say you wouldn't have a bit of trouble knitting it!

I'm done with the flirty skirt and it's blocked. I'm wearing it today, but there is one problem with it. It's the waist. The skirt is knit all one size down to the pleats. Which means it is very big in the waist. You make belt loops and run a belt through them, but it makes it bunch and it still works it way down below the belt and gapes open. So I think I'm going to pick up the stitches around the waist and knit upward and start decreasing to make it taper into a waist. That is the only problem I have with the pattern. It is a very elegant skirt and looks really professional.
