Replace first tr at beg of row/round with 3 ch. Finish each row with 1 tr in 3rd ch from previous row and finish each round with 1 sl st in 3rd ch from beg of round.
Replace first dtr at beg of round with 4 ch, finish round with 1 sl st in 4th ch from beg of round.
Because of the weight of the yarn make all measurements whilst the garment is hanging, otherwise it will be too long when worn.
Inc 1 tr by working 2 tr in the same tr. DECREASING TIP:
Crochet 1 tr but wait with the last pull-through (= 2 sts on hook), crochet next tr and when doing the last pull-though pull thread through all 3 sts on hook = 1 dec tr.

Piece crochet back and forth from top down until after the split at the side, then continue in the round. Because of the weight of the yarn crochet the first 3 rows with 1 thread Cotton Viscose and 1 elasticated thread to make the skirt sit nicely at the waist.

Crochet 186-209-232-258-279-305 LOOSE ch (includes 3 ch to turn with) with crochet hook size 3.5 mm and Cotton Viscose and elasticated thread (= 2 threads).Crochet first row as follows: 1 tr in 4th ch from hook, 1 tr in each of the next 4 ch, * skip 1 ch, 1 tr in each of the next 6 ch *, repeat from *-* until 3-5-7-5-5-3 ch remain, skip 1 ch and finish with 1 tr in each of the last 2-4-6-4-4-2 ch = 158-178-198-220-238-260 tr. Now continue back and forth with 1 tr in each tr – See CROCHET INFO! After 3 rows remove the elasticated thread and continue with 1 thread Cotton Viscose. REMEMBER THE CROCHET TENSION! After a total of 5 rows insert 6 markers in piece as follows: First marker after 14-14-16-20-21-22 tr, then 26-30-33-36-39-43 tr between each marker, = 14-14-17-20-22-23 tr after the last marker at the end of row. On next row inc 1 tr before all markers – See INCREASING TIP! Repeat the inc on every other row a total of 7-7-8-9-10-11 times – NOTE! Inc before and after the markers alternately = 200-220-246-274-298-326 tr. AT THE SAME TIME after a total of 12 rows continue in the round (= after the split) – round beg at the side, see CROCHET INFO! When piece measures 29-31-33-35-37-39 cm – see MEASUREMENT TIP – inc 8-4-10-6-6-10 tr evenly = 208-224-256-280-304-336 tr on round. Now complete piece in fan pattern as follows:

ROUND 1: 1 dc in first tr, * 4 ch, skip 3 tr, 1 dc in next tr *, repeat from *-* and finish with 4 ch and 1 sl st in first dc = 52-56-64-70-76-84 ch-loops.
ROUND 2: * 4 tr + 2 ch + 4 tr in first ch-loop, 1 tr in next ch-loop *, repeat from *-* = 26-28-32-35-38-42 fans.
ROUND 3: * 4 tr + 2 ch + 4 tr in the middle of first fan (i.e. in ch-loop in fan), 1 tr in next tr *, repeat from *-*.
Repeat round 3 a total of 4 times (piece now measures approx 38-40-42-44-46-48 cm and fan pattern measures approx 9 cm).

CROCHET NEXT ROUND AS FOLLOWS: * 4 dtr + 2 ch + 4 dtr in the middle of first fan, 1 dtr in next tr *, repeat from *-*.

Repeat this round a total of 5 times, piece measures approx 48-50-52-54-56-58 cm - REMEMBER MEASUREMENT TIP – if you want the skirt slightly longer continue to desired length. Cut and fasten thread.

Crochet buttonhole loops along split on front piece as follows, beg at bottom: 2 dc in first tr, 3 ch, skip 1 tr, * crochet 2 dc in each of the next 2 tr, 3 ch, skip 1 tr *, repeat from *-* a total of 3 times and finish with 2 dc in last tr, turn and crochet return row as follows: 1 dc in each dc and 3 dc in each ch-loop.

Crochet 5 rows dc back and forth along split on back piece (on first row crochet 2 dc in each tr = 24 dc), cut thread. Sew on buttons.
