This pattern created a girls’ size 7.

This is an easy, no-brainer pattern that results in a one-of-a-kind skirt!

Supplies:
US 7 straight needles
18-20 sts = 4 inches
2 balls of Santorini (58% viscose / 42% cotton); 50 g / 125 yds; (color shown is #2108)
hand wash cool, dry flat

Steps:
CO 120 sts
Then choose ANY stitch you desire for each row. I randomly chose out of these various row styles:

  1. Knit entire row
  2. Purl entire row
  3. Double-wrap knit row (wrap around your needle twice, instead of once as in a normal knit) -> results in a triangular stitch.
  4. Two-needle wrap, knit row (wrap once around both needles) -> creates a twisted stitch.
  5. These 3 rows in combination:
    • k1, *yo, yo, k1*, k1
    • k1, *k2, p1*, k1
    • k1, *k3tog*, k1
  6. These 3 rows in combination:
    • k1, *yo, k1*, k1
    • knit
    • k1, *k2tog*, k1

I inadvertently obtained a slight flare at the bottom (beginning) of the skirt by using the following combination for the first 9 rows:

    • 1 knit row
    • 1 double-wrap row
    • 1 knit row
    • 1 purl row
    • 1 knit row
    • 3 rows of # 5 above
    • 1 double-wrap row
    • 1 knit row
    • 3 rows of #6 above

After that I omitted the #5 combination since it widened the skirt when I wanted it to remain rectangular (at least for the remainder, anyway) and added a rayon liner.
