Chevron stripes meets festival mermaid. For this two-piece maxi skirt and cropped top pattern, you’ll knit chevron stitch to construct the scalloped hem and then reverse stocking stitch to continue the chevron pattern throughout the garment. This design also involves knitting garter stitch and icord ties for the top, so a great advanced knit to challenge yourself with.
