Sand Dance Skirt



My “Sun and Sand” collection will take you on a journey to hot exotic places: places like Kara Kum desert, the ancient monuments of majestic and beautiful Samarkand city, to the shores of Mediterranean Sea, and to the colorful markets of Middle East, places from my childhood memories.
“Sand Dance” skirt is my vision of dancing sands under the hot breath of a desert, and of sparkling turquoise waters of oasis, and of beautiful lapis lazuli mosaic.

The skirt can be knit in any yarn weight (fingering, dk, worsted, etc…), however certain yarn weights are better suited for certain sizes but not the others. The pattern is written for:

Fingering (4 ply): 6 m to 1-3T
Dk (8 ply):  1-3T to 6-8 years

Worsted (10 ply): 2-4T to 12-14 years
