DIY Sew: 1/2 Circle Skirt

I was over on WhoWhatWear.com the other day and came across an article about 10 Must Try Outfit Ideas. My favorite outfit idea and also the one I was most excited to try to DIY was this one below: Thin Wool Sweater and Circle Skirt.  This is totally DIYable right? Well I was aching to find out, so, as usual I began to do some construction research.
As you can see from the first picture I decided to make my circle skirt a mini. 
See below for tutorial & materials list:
Here's what you need to get started:
1.5 to 2 yards of knit fabric
matching thread
sewing machine
fabric chalk

 Cut pattern pieces out

You'll notice after cutting that you'll need to sew up one side of the skirt
