Bog standard is the UK term for something basic - like vanilla in the US!

A fun, wearable skirt pattern in 13 sizes from 2 years to 60” waist. Make each panel a different colour, or just use a few colours. Make it as short or as long as you like. Worked mainly in stocking stitch, it is perfect mindless knitting in front of the TV!

It is suitable for most yarns, including wool, acrylic, nylon, silk, cotton, bamboo and blends.
