Seriously, I never found a pattern that I thought would be flattering; and all of that bulk.  So when the fall lines began to roll in at the local stores and I saw a cabled knit skirt that I thought was adorable, I decided to take a crack at it.

I, of course, used the bulkiest yarn I had, don't ask me why.  I'm very happy with what I came up with.  Smiley  Now, I'm just waiting for it to drop in temperature so I can wear it!



and closer details of the cables


At the top, I used a woven criss-cross cable, then it moves into separate sections of honeycomb, rib, and six-stitch cables.  I knit in the round; the back is purely stockinette... with a couple of short rows for the booty.

Wow I love the look of those cables! I never thought a chunky knit skirt would work either, now I'm tempted to create one of my own Smiley

Inspiration without application is moot.

I am amazed at how much I like it. It looks like a boy friend's sweater that you made look better.

*I hope that makes sense*

Very pretty! I bet it's extremely warm, great way to wear a skirt in winter and not freeze half to death.

Your cables are so nice! I am jealous. I've not learned how to cable knit yet. It's on my list of things to learn.  Grin

Learn!  Cables make things interesting!

It was a fun knit.  I highly recommend doing something like this.  I'm thinking about making a pattern for this...  who knows

This is so pretty! I love the combination of cables and honeycomb stitch! I bet this would look great over tights... I was very resistant to the "tights" wave, but something like this would make them look cute! I might have to make an attempt at a skirt myself!
