This pattern can be found on pages 18-21 of Knitting Green: Conversations and Planet-Friendly Projects, by Ann Budd with contributions from some of the knitwear industry's leading designers.

Designer Cecily Glowik MacDonald used Solstice, a yarn that blends earthfriendly organic cotton with the softest merino, to knit a skirt that has both a conscience and memory. The cotton provides cool comfort, and the merino provides resilience (no droopy seat here). Cecily worked the skirt in the round from the scalloped lace pattern at the hem to the casing for elastic at the waist. She cleverly tapered the skirt by changing to progressively smaller needles along the way-there are
no decreases to interrupt the lace pattern on the lower skirt.
