Switchgrass Skirt by Anne Hanson

This breezy skirt in nine sizes (XS/S/M/L/1X/2X/3X/4X/5X) with drawstring waist is a go-anywhere alternative to shorts when summer fun is on the agenda. Worked in the round from waist to hem in widening panels, the fabric is solid through the hip, opening up in eyelet ribs to a swishy mesh-patterned hem. Whether it’s knit in a cool wash and wear blend or one with a silky sheen, this is a garment for all-day fun or special evening events.
Substituting yarn and/or needles may result in an overall variation in size and drape.

Just the pattern is here
