Hello, I'm 9sueseiber. I just downloaded the 5 patterns for Women on your Knitting Daily Website of 7/27/2012. I am interested in the Pattern Flirty Skirty. I would like to make this for my 13 yr. old Granddaughter. However she has a thing about Wool. Won't even try it. So I was wondering if there was a substitute yarn I could make this with? Also, is there any way I can "knit" the belt loops, instead of Crochet? I don't know how to crochet at all. You don't mention a specific size for this pattern. I know you give the hip size, but I have no idea of hers. This is supposed to be a Xmas gift, so I really hate to ask her hip size. I think she is a 5-6 or 7-8. I can find that out without letting her know. I guess this is really only for the one specific size though, right? Anyway if you could let e know I would greatly appreciate it. If you have some comparable patterns in teen sizes, maybe you could give me the link to those? I really love this skirt. Thank you very much.
