Knitted skirts and dresses were once a staple of the knitter’s wardrobe. Just as every fashion show used to end with a wedding dress, no magazine was complete with out at least 1 dress if not a dress and 2 piece knitted suit. Exquisite day dresses with smart jackets hand knit with an exciting new fiber, rayon, on US size 1, 2 or 3 were all the rage in the 1930s and ’40s. In the 1950s, mohair was all the rage; in the 1960s, sheath and mini-dresses.
Berroco has published many skirt and dress patterns over the years. The complete collection of Berroco’s skirt and dress patterns can be browsed with an advance search on Ravelry, or by clicking here. For a broader search of all skirt and dress patterns designed for Berroco yarns click here.
Some of my favorite skirts from your projects include (from left to right) KSMknits’ Togo in Modern Cotton, Ashlyliz’s Napuka (shorter) in Vintage (originally for Fuji), Lzembek’s Dickson in Ultra Alpaca.
