SKIRT: Worked back and forth on circular needle from side to side, with shortened rows to make skirt wider towards bottom edge. The skirt is worked in garter st, i.e. K all rows.

If you want the skirt 10 cm longer cast on an extra 24 sts, and add these to sts between MARKER-2 and MARKER-3, i.e. work 72-77-82-87-92-97 sts before MARKER-3.

Loosely cast on 115-120-125-130-135-140 sts on circular needle size 3 mm with Fabel.
Work first row as follows (from waist towards bottom edge): 10 sts, insert MARKER-1, work 15 sts, insert MARKER-2, work 48-53-58-63-68-73 sts, insert MARKER-3, work remaining 42 sts. Let the markers follow the piece as you go along.
Now work shortened rows as follows (when turning piece mid row, tighten thread before working return row): * Work 10-12-12-14-14-16 rows back and forth on all sts (first row = WS), work next row to marker-1 (10 sts remain), turn and work return row, work row to marker-2 (25 sts remain), turn and work return row.
Now work 1 pleat as follows: Work 2 sts, turn, work return row, work 4 sts, turn, work return row, work 6 sts, turn, work return row. Continue like this with 2 more sts before each turn until you reach marker-3 (i.e. on 42 sts), turn and work return row *, repeat from *-* until piece measures approx 90-96-104-114-124-136 cm between marker 2 and 3 (measured when lying flat) – adjust to after a whole pleat. Try the skirt on to see if it fits.
Work 2 rows on all sts, then cast off VERY LOOSELY from bottom edge towards the waist, but finish 25 sts before the end of row. Work 10 rows back and forth on these sts for button band, and then cast off.

ASSEMBLY: Sew skirt tog, edge to edge, up to buttonhole band. Crochet 5 buttonhole loops along the side without band on crochet hook size 3 mm as follows – beg at the top: 1 dc in first st, * 3 ch, skip 2 sts, 1 dc in each of the next 3 sts *, repeat from *-* a total of 5 times, turn and work 1 dc in each dc and 2 dc in each ch-loop on return row. Sew buttons to button band to fit buttonhole loops.
