Shetland Trader Filska PDF
Fun to knit and definitely fun to wear, this skirt begins with a scalloped lace hem worked as a long vertical strip. Yarn over loops are then picked up from one edge and the body of the skirt continues in a flattering slipped stitch pattern. Designed for versatility, you can dress it up or down to suit any occasion. Lace pattern is both charted and written out.

28 sts and 38 rows= 4” on US 5 in Jacquard Stitch Pattern
24 sts and 40 rows= 4” on US 4 in Jacquard Stitch Pattern
