Beach Bum Skirt (KUAS Original Pattern)

Designed By Anna Peck

This free pattern has been removed 10/17/12. It may or may not return, but if it does, it will be tweaked and pdf’ed and available for an inexpensive $1.99 price.

If your as self-conscious as me, you probably prefer something that will cover up your bikini bottom while walking around the beach. I dub this quick knit "(cover your) beach bum" as the perfect summery knit to ease your mind, and look chic by the poolside. It is a lace pattern, so you'll even catch a nice breaze as you lounge around. Hey, you might even need multiple ones to match your various bikinis laying around the house. Aloha!

**At least 315 yards of soft cotton, medium weight in any color.
**In a different color, about 25-50 grams of a slightly thicker yarn than your main color. It depends on how flared you made your skirt.
