Whether you choose to work in the round, in pieces, or in panels, a skirt is less fussy to knit than are most sweaters. This issue features many different silhouettes constructed in a variety of ways: in one piece or in multiple pieces, panels, bands, or sections. You will find some easy approaches, a few that require a bit more skill, and a couple that use specialized techniques.
