Q's about knitting a skirt

I’m trying to knit my first skirt. I’m knitting in the round. Are there any tricks or suggestions for knitting a skirt. The pattern is k2p2 all the way around for the whole skirt. TIA.

There were instructions for knitting skirts in the round in Barbara Walker’s book Knitting from the Top. I didn’t read that chapter (and don’t have the book anymore), but it might be a place to look. Maybe you can see if your local library has it.
