Fringed Skirt

Lion Brand® Lion® Suede

GAUGE:

12 sts and 19 rows = 4 in. [10 cm] in St st (k on RS, p on WS) with larger needles. When you match the gauge in a pattern, your project will be the size specified in the pattern and the materials specified in the pattern will be sufficient. The needle or hook size called for in the pattern is based on what the designer used, but it is not unusual for gauge to vary from person to person. If it takes you fewer stitches and rows to make your swatch, try using a smaller size hook or needles; if more stitches and rows, try a larger size hook or needles.

Fringed Skirt Reviewed by Wendy Wilson on 2009-03-05 **
I never made this, but if you are going to make it, I would strongly suggest you plan on Dry-cleaning it.
I made a scarf with fringe, then washed it in the washer to be ready for my daughter to use. The FRINGE MATTED UP! I had to cut it off, and pick out the little loops before I sent it to my daughter.
The yarn makes great fringe, but not after it has been washed! DON'T expect it to look like this when you take it out of the washer!
