Swingy, swirly, and fun, this signature A-line skirt from Kristin Omdahl is an easy pattern that will add some pizzazz to your wardrobe. The motifs are crocheted first, accented by piping in the main color, then they are joined and the skirt is worked in the round from the bottom up. Paired with a sweater for Fall or a blouse for Spring, this is an all-season staple.
