Yarn kit for Gwen Bortner’s Sliding Stripes skirt knitting pattern.
Pattern is included. Pattern details here.
Start with five colors of lace-weight yarn. Combine three strands in different color combinations. Knit short rows side to side. Put it all together and you have a magical gradient skirt transitioning in vertical stripes around the body, in a flattering A-line shape. Choose monochromatic colors or go wild. The choice is yours and the possibilities are limitless!

“As Shown” Kits often ship much sooner than customized colors. Most yarn is dyed to order, so please allow up to 2 weeks for your order to ship (although most leave our studio much sooner).
Please note that all monitors portray colors differently, so shade may vary slightly in your finished yarn. Yardage can also vary slightly as packaging is based on weight, and should be used as approximations.
