Hi...this is the designer here...make sure you are working from the right scallop pattern....the first one for the top half of the skirt has M1 increases instead of yarn overs (which will come for the lower half of the skirt). If you are using the M1 increase just make sure that you are going into the strand the right way when you make the new stitch (there is a description of how to do it under the pattern notes). Hope that helps! Look forward to seeing an adult version.

Thanks for the heads up on the mistake! I've changed it on my blog so anyone knitting the size 2 or 4 can go there for the changes. Don't worry if you have already started as this only affects the very end of the skirt!

Your daughter and the skirt look so cute! Nice to see that the wee size worked out ok too! Blocking with the skirt damp and with an iron should help the puckering....I'm not sure what the care is for the yarn you used but with the hempathy I throw it in the machine all the time and it softens up and the drape gets better. Could you email me a pic for my blog?

Nice to see a few more of you have joined this KAL! Yes I agree about weaving in ends...bit of a pain I know...but as pointed out the yarn being carried could show through at the yarn-over portion...you could obviously carry to that point then have tails? I did opt for weaving all and I made three of these skirts (including one in adult size)!! (I survived)
I'm so glad that the pattern is proving easy to follow (the technical editor at Knitty helped with that and improved upon the chart I gave her).
Looking forward to more images!

Hello everyone,
Just left a comment on the completed Hip In Hemp Post...looks so great! I wanted to say/ask if people would please email me pics of their completed skirts so I can post them on my blog? Thanks to all who are making this skirt it's so incredibly rewarding to see others out there making something I designed...so glad it works!

Sorry I wasn't able to log in sooner but we were moving house the last few days and I'm only just back on line. I have to say it's really rewarding to see my pattern being knit up...I love the way both of theses skirts look...as to the length remember that you can always slip stitches onto a piece of scrap yarn and try it on your daughters. The skirt does hang down a bit when off the needles and blocking it will add a little more length....but better to go longer if you have enough yarn...that way the girls will get more use out of it as their waist size won't change as dramatically as their leg length. I will check out the numbers on how many stitches should be between markers......really crossing my fingers that there aren't any number mistakes!

Hi, this is the designer of Hip in Hemp here! So great to see these pictures and it looks like you are making good progress. I love the colours you chose, the hempathy has some great options. Sorry if the waistband description was confusing...I had intended for the purl side to be on the outside but it really makes no difference. If anyone has any other questions please let me know.
Can't wait to see the finished product!
What size are you knitting?
