Looped in Love
The Looped in Love Skirt was inspired by my Dragon Wing Scarf. I love the way the increases work within the Jacob’s Ladder Stitch, and it just screamed “make me a flared skirt!!” I learned a long time ago, when a yarn or stitch pattern talks to me, it’s in my best interest to listen. So here it is, a fun skirt for all ages that flares between vertical sections of looped stitches. It’s made from the top down, so it can be made to any length that suits your fancy. The longer the skirt, the more yarn it will take.
