Flare or A-line skirts are some of my favorites because they still allow for full range of motion unlike some more fitted styles. This skirt has two ties at the waistband and a slit at the top so putting it on is much easier.

Yarn amounts are based on a skirt 15 inches in length from the top of the waist to the bottom edge of the skirt. If you would like a longer or shorter piece, adjust the amount of yarn accordingly.
