GARTER ST (worked in the round):
1 ridge = 2 rounds. * K 1 round and P 1 round *, repeat from *-*.

INCREASE TIP (applies to distribution of inc):
To calculate how often inc should be done, use the total no of sts on row (e.g. 150 sts) and divide by no of inc to be done (e.g. 8) = 18.8. I.e. in this example inc after approx. every 19th st.
NOTE: Inc 1 st by making 1 YO. On next round K YO twisted (if next round is in stocking st) or P twisted (if next round is P) to avoid holes.

PATTERN:
See diagrams A.1 to A.4.

SKIRT:
Worked in the round on circular needle, top down.
Cast on 150-168-184-204-230-256 sts on circular needle size 3 mm with Muskat. Work 2 cm in stocking st (= hem), then P 1 round (= folding edge). Switch to circular needle size 3.5 mm. Insert 1 marker in piece, NOW MEASURE PIECE FROM HERE. Work in stocking st. When piece measures 3-3-4-4-5-5 cm, inc 8-6-10-6-4-4 sts evenly - READ INCREASE TIP = 158-174-194-210-234-260 sts. REMEMBER THE KNITTING TENSION When piece measures 6-6-8-8-10-10 cm, switch to circular needle size 3 mm. Work 2 ridges in GARTER ST - see explanation above and inc AT THE SAME TIME 10-6-10-6-6-4 sts evenly on 1st round = 168-180-204-216-240-264 sts. Switch back to circular needle size 3.5 mm and work pattern in the round according to diagram A.1A (= 14-15-17-18-20-22 repetitions of 12 sts). After A.1A work A.1B. When A.1B has been worked one time vertically, there are 196-210-238-252-280-308 sts on needle. Work A.1C one time vertically. Switch to circular needle size 3 mm and work 2 ridges while inc 27-19-15-7-9-5 sts evenly on 1st round = 223-229-253-259-289-313 sts. Switch back to circular needle size 3.5 mm and work pattern in the round according to diagram A.2 as follows: Work A.2A (= 7 sts), repeat A.2B until 6 sts remain on round (= 35-36-40-41-46-50 repetitions of 6 sts) and finish with A.2C (= 6 sts). When A.2 has been worked 2 times vertically, switch to circular needle size 3 mm. Work 2 ridges while AT THE SAME TIME inc 29-23-23-17-11-11 sts evenly on 1st round = 252-252-276-276-300-324 sts. Switch back to circular needle size 3.5 mm again and work pattern in the round according to diagram A.3 (= 21-21-23-23-25-27 repetitions of 12 sts). When A.3 has been worked one time vertically, there are 273-273-299-299-325-351 sts on needle. Now repeat A.X over A.3 until piece measures approx. 42-44-46-48-50-52 cm (or desired length, approx. 4 cm remain until finished measurements). Work pattern in the round according to diagram A.4 and then LOOSELY cast off.

ASSEMBLY:
Fold the hem towards the WS and fasten with neat stitches - NOTE: Leave a little opening to thread the elastic through.
