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

Cast on 25 sts on circular needle size 3 mm with Baby Merino. Work 10 rows back and forth on needle for button edge (first row = RS).
Now cast on 100-105-110-115-120-125 sts at the end of next row from RS = 125-130-135-140-145-150 sts. K 1 row from WS on all sts. Insert a marker in piece, and now measure piece from here. Work next rows as follows (from the 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 42 sts, insert MARKER-4, work M.1 on the remaining 10 sts (NOTE! number of sts in M.1 varies).
Let all markers follow the piece as you go along.
READ ALL OF THE FOLLOWING SECTION BEFORE CONTINUING!
Now work shortened rows as follows (when turning mid piece, tighten thread before working return row):
* Work 10-12-12-14-14-16 rows back and forth on all sts (first row = WS), then work sts to MARKER-1 (10 sts remain), turn and work return row. Work sts to MARKER-2 (25 sts remain), turn and work return row. Now work 1 pleat as follows: Work M.1, turn and work return row. Work M.1 + 3 sts, turn and work return row. Work M.1 + 6 sts, turn and work return row. Work M.1 + 9 sts, turn and work return row. Continue like this with 3 more sts before each turn until you reach MARKER 3, turn and work return row *. Repeat from *-* until piece measures approx 88-94-102-112-122-134 cm in the knitting direction between MARKER-2 and MARKER-3 (place piece flat when measuring) - adjust so that next row is from RS.
On next row from RS (from waist towards bottom edge) make 5 buttonholes as follows: K2, * K2 tog, 1 YO, K3 *, repeat from *-* a total of 4 times, K2 tog, 1 YO and work remaining sts on row as before. Continue on all sts as before until piece measures approx 90-96-104-114-124-136 cm in the knitting direction between MARKER-2 and MARKER-3 (when placed flat) - adjust to after a full repeat of M.1. Work 2 rows on all sts and cast off LOOSELY.

ASSEMBLY:
Sew tog skirt, edge to edge up to button edge. Sew buttons to button edge.

Bitte wie stricke ich die doppelten Umschläge zurück?

DROPS Design 27.09.2015 kl. 22:05:

Sie stricken einfach nur einen Umschlag ab und lassen den anderen fallen, dadurch ergibt sich ein größeres Loch, als es mit nur einem Umschlag der Fall wäre.

Hallo, could you please tell me which pattern e-146 is? Somebody commented that it suits to this skirt well. Thanks.

Dear Vanda, please click here to get patter no E-146 / 120-23. Happy knitting!

Ser Drops Lace er oppgitt som garnalternativ her. Det er jo et garn som er mye tynnere enn de andre i samme garngruppe, så hvordan vil det bli med tanke på størrelse og strikkefasthet?

DROPS Design 04.08.2014 kl. 16:01:

Hei Elisabeth. Lace vil give et finere og mere delikat udtryk. Du skal sørge for at få den samme strikkefasthed som i mønstret, så prøv at strikke en prøve og se hvilken pind der skal bruges til samme strikkefasthed hos dig og om du kan lide den struktur Lace garnet giver.

Bonjour Mme Turmel, vous trouverez désormais sous l'onglet "Vidéo" une vidéo montrant comment réaliser le diagramme M.1. Bon tricot!

Diane Turmel 14.05.2014 - 18:50:

J ai essayé a plusieurs reprises de tricoter la jupe... Pourriez-vous me fournir un vidéo sur comment faire la dentelle

DROPS Design 15.05.2014 kl. 13:42:

Bonjour Mme Turmel, votre demande a été enregistrée, en attendant, pour toute aide complémentaire, vous pouvez contactez votre magasin DROPS ou demande de l'aide sur le forum DROPS. Bon tricot!

Hikari 28.03.2013 - 11:18:

Bonjour, Faut-il fermer le cercle après les 10 premiers rangs d'aller-retour (= tricoter en rond comme pour une robe)ou bien elle se tricot carrément ''ouverte '' avec une couture entière du haut vers le bas d'un seul coté ( gauche je crois ) ? Merci d'avance pour votre réponse.

DROPS Design 28.03.2013 kl. 13:25:

Bonjour Madame Hikari, la jupe se tricote entièrement en allers et retours, dans le sens de la longueur avec une couture à la fin sur le côté jusqu'à la bordure de boutonnage. Bon tricot !

Valérie 20.03.2013 - 08:54:

N'y a t il pas une erreur dans le diagramme , si on diminue 3 fois et augmente 3 fois dans un même range, je ne vois pas comment on a deux mailles de plus en fin de rang ? Pouvez vous m'éclairer ....

DROPS Design 20.03.2013 kl. 09:10:

Bonjour Valérie, vous avez dans le diagramme 2 styles de jetés : le "rond blanc" = 1 jeté (= 4ème symbole de la légende), et le "rond noir" = 1 double jeté (=6ème symbole de la légende), ainsi, au 1er rang, on fait 1 jeté + 2 double jetés, soit + 5 m et 3 diminutions (3 fois 2 m ens à l'end) = il reste 2 m augmentées. Bon tricot !

Prachtige rok. heeft iemand met een maatje meer deze al gemaakt en hoe draagt hij. ik wil hem zo graag maken maar heb redelijk brede heupen en wil niet nog meer in de kijker lopen

DROPS Design 15.04.2010 - 11:49:

Over de nederste 10 masker strikker du altid M.1 og da bilr de føreste 4 masker til hullraden.

Laila 14.04.2010 - 13:04:

På bildet er det en bord med hull rundt hele, men det får ikke jeg. Det står at du skal strikke 12 p. over alle maskene. Gjør jeg noe feil, ev. hva?
