Shakerag Skirt Knitalong

I hand washed my skirt and laid flat to dry. It took about 3 days to dry completely. I wasn’t sure if you woul have access to a washer and dryer.

This skirt is a great travel project though. I compled most of mine in the car.

Looks great on you!

Thanks for the feedback. I am figuring that it’s a good travel project because mostly you just go round and round and round. Those are the only projects I can do without needing to look at my hands all the time! However, I have now knitted three marlogram scarves on holiday and find them absolutely mesmerizing.

Hi Skirt knitters, I haven’t made a Shakerag yet. Your skirts look so lovely and I love that wide band of lace. Because I won’t be going bare-legged, I’m wondering if anyone has worn theirs over tights or leggings and can tell me if the skirt “rides up” the tights?

I have not had problems with mine riding up with tights.

Skirt update. I was pretty close to the finish line, but couldn’t shake the thought that I should’ve added extra length and short rows at the beginning. I had lengthened decrease frequency to create a straighter skirt and it fit pretty well as I tried it on with barber cord, but even so, I felt the skirt was just a bit form fitting and short. I didn’t want the majority of the straight length to be near the waistband because that would shift all the decreases downward with more snug results. So…I frogged 95 rows back to the lace by threading another cable needle around and laddering back on the BOR point. Posting this to encourage anyone to not fear frogging and making changes. Thanks to @nellknits for the great pattern and outstanding planning advice in this forum and at her MDK Knitting Getaway class. I hope to finish soon!
