Masika is a practical and stylish, straight skirt with striking cable pattern. The cabling at the front and back, with stocking stitch side panels, draws the eye to the centre and as it’s knitted in the round, Masika needs little finishing, with the belt loops added as a final flourish.
Knitting techniques include two cable patterns and increasing stitches
