Gaia Skirt Knitting Kit
Gaia is a fabulous knitted skirt, created with short row shaping and integrated blackberry stitch hem; the cable waistband and seed stitch bow gives this skirt an extra feature! The construction of Gaia means she holds her shape and doesn’t ‘seat’, making this skirt an up to date addition to any wardrobe. Knitted skirts have featured heavily with many fashion houses recently, so get the needles out and keep up with the trends!
