blue sky alpacas has a cute mini-skirt pattern...
I haven't knit it myself, so I can't really say anything about the pattern, but Wendy has! and it looks great!

Have you seen Mickey in the current Knitty?  I know it's a kid pattern, but I think you could size it up pretty easily.  At any rate, I think the side to side construction is the kind least likely to result in sagging, so I would look for patterns written that way!

I also really like the look of this skirt on knitandtonic:

She says you can get the pattern on kpixie, but I haven't gone looking for it.

Either the first or second issue of the R2 knitting magazines has a super cute one in it.

Be careful - I think knitting on a garment like a skirt may sag more obviously and look horrible, so swatch thoroughly and really think about how the fabric will look and change once knitted, worn, and washed! It's worth extra time and effort in a case like this at the start to make sure you get a beautiful result. Good luck!

Yeah, whatever you do, you should do an intense gauge to check for sagging!  And you're probably going to have to knit it at a really tight gauge.  Not that you should let this put you off, but forewarned is forearmed, right?

Speaking of skirts, I know it's not a mini, but has anyone seen Wisteria in the latest Rowan magazine?  I know it probably wouldn't look anything like that on me, but I am itching to knit that skirt nonetheless!

There's also a really cute one from DIY that I fell in love with. I haven't tried it yet, but one day I will. Here's the linky: http://www.diynetwork.com/diy/na_knitting/article/0,2025,DIY_14141_4978083,00.html. It was on the one episode of Knitty Gritty that I actually liked. The pics don't really do it justice. It was much cuter when on tv.

I like to do personal swaps now and again.

I knit, crochet, and make stitch markers.

Just pm me if you wanna swap. Smiley
