Pattern calls for 5 (5, 6, 6) skeins of Noro Silk Garden and 2 hanks of Noro Mossa.

Behnke stripes two Noro yarns--Silk Garden #364 and Mossa #13--to create an interplay of color and texture on her flared-hem pencil skirt. Knit in two pieces and seamed, it sports a gently sloped chevron pattern, with rows of Mossa worked in a purl ridge for added nap. Insets, shaped with short rows, form straight edges at the garter-stitch hem and ribbed waistband, which sits below the waist.
