--------------------------------------------------------

All squares worked in garter st - i.e. K all rows.

SKIRT:
Beg by casting on sts for the full width of the bottom of skirt, then continue with squares back and forth on circular needle.

ROW 1:
Cast on 434-462-490 sts on circular needle size 3 mm with Delight. K 1 row from WS and work next row from RS as follows: K 14-15-16, * slip 1 st as if to K, K2 tog, psso, K 28-30-32 *, repeat from *-* a total of 13 times and finish with slip 1 st as if to K, K2 tog, psso and K 14-15-16 = 406-434-462 sts.
Now work WHOLE DOMINO SQUARE - see above. Beg with the first 29-31-33 sts on row. Insert a marker in the middle of the 29-31-33 sts. Continue as described above.
When domino square is finished, work in the same way on the next 29-31-33 sts and repeat across the row until there are 14 squares on Row 1.
