Here's my completed swatch for Esprit. The fabric feels very soft and is slightly stretchy, though not overly so. It was hard to figure out my tension while using this yarn. To meet gauge I had to go up two needle sizes to number nines. In my version of the mini skirt I will only have three colors instead of the four as called for in the pattern. Instead of the two different colors for the yoke section and ribbing of the skirt, I am only going to use black. Because of the elasticity in the yarn, this skirt should hold its shape extremely well.
