CROCHET INFO 1:
Turn every sc row with ch 1, this ch does not replace first sc.

CROCHET INFO 2:
Replace 1st dc at beg of every round with zigzag pattern with 3 ch and finish every round with 1 sl st in 3rd ch from beg of round.

STRIPES:
See diagram A.1. 1 row in diagram = 1 row with dc and zigzag pattern.
----------------------------------------------------------

SKIRT:
The skirt is worked top down.
Work back and forth from the side until after vent is done, then work in the round.
Ch 175-192-210-227-262-297 with dark brown eco.
Work first row as follows: 1 sc in 2nd ch from hook and 1 sc in each of the next 5-1-5-1-1-1 ch, * skip ch 1, 1 sc in each of the next 6 ch *, repeat from *-* the entire row = 150-164-180-194-224-254 sc, turn piece – READ CROCHET INFO 1. Work 2 rows back and forth with 1 sc in every sc.
Switch to light brown eco.
Work next row as follows: ch 2, skip first sc, 1 sc in next sc, * ch 1, skip 1 sc, 1 sc in next sc *, repeat from *-* the entire row = 75-82-90-97-112-127 sc with 1 ch before every sc.
Work next row as follows: ch 2, skip first sc from previous row and work 1 sc in first ch, * ch 1, skip 1 sc, 1 sc in next ch *, repeat from *-* the entire row.
Repeat this last row until piece measures 5-6-6-7-7-8 cm / 2"-2½"-2½"-2 3/4"-2 3/4"-3".
REMEMBER THE CROCHET GAUGE!
Now work 1 row with 1 sc in every sc and 1 sc in every ch = 150-164-180-194-224-254 sc.
On next row inc evenly as follows: * 1 sc in each of the first 2 sc, 2 sc in next sc *, repeat from *-* until 0-2-0-2-2-2 sc remain, work 2 sc in each of these sc = 200-220-240-260-300-340 sc.
Then work STRIPES according to A.1 – see explanation above, AT THE SAME TIME work zigzag pattern back and forth as follows:
ROW 1: ch 3 (= 1 dc) in first sc, 1 dc in each of the next 8 sc, * skip 2 sc, 1 dc in each of the next 9 sc, ch 3, 1 dc in each of the next 9 sc *, repeat from *-* 8-9-10-11-13-15 more times, skip 2 sc, 1 dc in each of the last 9 sc =
180-198-216-234-270-306 dc.
ROW 2: ch 3 (= 1 dc) + 1 dc in first dc, 2 dc in next 2 dc, 1 dc in each of the next 4 dc, * skip 4 dc, 1 dc in each of the next 7 dc, 3 dc in ch-space, ch 3, 3 dc in same ch-space, 1 dc in each of the next 7 dc *, repeat from *-* 8-9-10-11-13-15 more times, skip 4 dc, finish with 1 dc in each of the next 4 dc and 2 dc in each of the last 3 dc = 200-220-240-260-300-340 dc.
ROW 3: ch 3 (= 1 dc) + 1 dc in first dc, 2 dc in next dc, 1 dc in each of the next 6 dc, * skip 4 dc, 1 dc in each of the next 8 dc, 2 dc in ch-space, ch 3, 2 dc in same ch-space, 1 dc in each of the next 8 dc *, repeat from *-* 8-9-10-11-13-15 more times, skip 4 dc, finish with 1 dc in each of the next 6 dc and 2 dc in each of the last 2 dc = 200-220-240-260-300-340 dc.
Repeat 3rd row 1 more time, turn piece.
Piece now measures approx. 11-12-12-13-13-14 cm / 4½"-4 3/4"-4 3/4"-5"-5"-5½".
Vent ends here, work next row as follows: ch 3 + 1 dc in first dc, 2 dc in next dc, 1 dc in each of the next 6 dc, * skip 4 dc, 1 dc in each of the next 8 dc, 2 dc in ch-space, ch 3, 2 dc in same ch-space, 1 dc in each of the next 8 dc *, repeat from *-* 8-9-10-11-13-15 more times, skip 4 dc, 1 dc in each of the next 6 dc, 2 dc in each of the last 2 dc on round, ch 3, 1 sl st in 3rd ch from beg of round = 200-220-240-260-300-340 dc.
Work next round as follows - READ CROCHET INFO 2: * 1 dc in each of the first 8 dc, skip 4 dc, 1 dc in each of the next 8 dc, 2 dc in ch-space, ch 3, 2 dc in same ch-space *, repeat from *-* the entire round.
Continue in the round with zigzag pattern. AT THE SAME TIME on next round inc 2 dc in every repetition by working 3 dc + ch 3 + 3 dc in every ch-space instead of 2 dc + ch 3 + 2 dc (i.e. inc from 10 to 11 dc along every angle the entire round) = 220-242-264-286-330-374 dc.
Repeat inc the same way every 4th round 5 more times = 320-352-384-416-480-544 dc (after last inc there are 16 dc along every angle).
Then work until skirt measures approx. 56-58-60-62-64-66 cm / 22''-22¾''-23 5/8''-24 3/8''-25¼''-26'' at the longest (continue with light brown eco until finished measurements if you want a longer skirt when A.1 is done).
Fasten off.

BUTTONHOLE LOOPS:
Along the opening in the side facing towards front piece work a band with buttonhole loops as follows:
Work 3 rows with sc and dark brown eco back and forth.
Then work 3-3-3-4-4-4 buttonhole loops evenly on next row – 1 buttonhole loop = ch 3, skip 1 cm / 3/8''.
Bottom loop should be approx. 1 cm / 3/8'' from bottom edge of vent and upper loop approx. 1 cm / 3/8'' from the top.
Work back as follows: 1 sc in every sc and 3 sc in every ch-space, fasten off.

BUTTON PLEAT:
Along the other side of the opening work 5 rows with sc and dark brown eco back and forth, cut the thread.
Sew the buttons on to 1st row of button pleat so that they match the buttonhole loops.

I am confused about the start of the vent for this pattern. I don't see any instructions prior to the start.

DROPS Design 17.08.2018 kl. 11:03:

Dear Mrs Foggie, the skirt is first worked in rows until piece measures approx. 11-12-12-13-13-14 cm / 4½"-4 3/4"-4 3/4"-5"-5"-5½". Then you work in the round as explained on next row starting with "Vent ends here". Happy crocheting!

Hei, kan dere hjelpe med dette: "Neste omg hekles slik- LES HEKLEINFO-2: * 1 st i hver av de første 8 st, hopp over 4 st, 1 st i hver av de 8 neste st, 2 st om lm-buen, 3 lm, 2 st om samme lm-bue *, gjenta fra *-* omg rundt." Skal man ikke hekle 2 staver i hver av de 2 første stavene, slik at man får 10 staver på begynnelsen av omgangen? Det vil være nødvendig for så å kunne hoppe over 4 staver?

DROPS Design 05.07.2017 kl. 14:13:

Hei Linn. Når jeg hekler dette skjørtet får jeg, etter LES HEKLEINFO-2, at det kun skal hekles stav i stav/8 staver i begynnelsen av omgangen (nå hekles det rundt og ikke frem og tilbake)for å kunne hoppe over 4 staver, slik at sikk-sakk mønstret blir riktig. Om jeg skal hekle 10 staver før jeg hopper over 4 staver vil sikk-sakk mønstret forskyve seg.

Laura 22.09.2016 - 13:24:

HOLA, ME GUSTARÍA SABER A QUE VUELTA HAY QUE VOLVER CUANDO EL PATRÓN TE DICE QUE HAGAS LOS AUMENTOS A CADA 4 VUELTAS Y SIGAS CON EL PATRÓN ZIG ZAG, A QUE HILERA HAY QUE VOLVER? GRACIAS.

DROPS Design 23.09.2016 kl. 19:30:

Hola Laura. Los aumentos se trabajan de la siguiente manera: en la primera vta has hecho los aum, trabajar las sig tres vtas sin aum y en la 4ª vta trabajas otra vez los aum de la misma manera. El patrón del zigzag lo trabajas según las explicaciones del patrón. Para controlar mejor, te recomiendo marcar con los MP (marcapuntos) la vta con los aum.

Selynn 01.12.2014 - 16:10:

This pattern is not easy to start off just tells you work back and forth until after vent is done what ever that means

DROPS Design 01.12.2014 kl. 17:01:

Dear Selynn, the skirt is worked from top down beg at the waist, you work in rows (back and forth) until the opening (button edge) is done, then continue in the round to the end. Happy crocheting!

Skal livvidden i str xxxl være bare 52 cm? Veldig smalt!

DROPS Design 12.05.2014 kl. 08:34:

Du ganger bredden med 2 for at få vidden. God fornöjelse!

Skal livvidden i str xxxl være bare 52 cm? Veldig smalt!

DROPS Design 12.05.2014 kl. 18:13:

Hej, som du ser på målskissen står det att xxxl måler 58 cm överst og det er målt fra side till side, så den er så 116 cm runt om.

Marina 26.03.2014 - 07:33:

Welke toeren moet ik herhalen. Is dat vanaf toer 1 of vanaf toer 3. Graag uw antwoord. groet. marina van rijn

DROPS Design 26.03.2014 kl. 12:26:

Hoi Marina. Als je 200-220-240-260-300-340 stk op de toer hebt staat er: "Haak de volgende toer als volgt - LEES INFORMATIE VOOR HET HAKEN 2: * 1 stk in elke van de eerste 8 stk, sla 4 stk over,..... enzovoort". Dit is de toer dat je blijft herhalen + de meerderingen zoals beschreven.

Innanzi tutto complimenti! questa gonna è bellissima! sto tentando di realizzarla ma ho un dubbio: quando dice "Ripetere gli aumenti nello stesso modo ogni quarto giro altre 5 volte(dopo l’ultimo aumento ci sono 16 m.a. lungo ogni angolo)" si intende 8 m.a. sul lato + 8 nell'occhiello? oppure 13 sul lato + 3 ? grazie per le eventuali risposte!!!

DROPS Design 21.02.2013 kl. 01:05:

La punta si forma con 2m.a+2cat+2m.a. Poi: aumentare 2 m.a. in ogni ripetizione lavorando 3 m.a.+ 3 cat+ 3 m.a. in ogni occh. di cat invece di 2 m.a.+3 cat+2 m.a. Questo vuol dire che si aumenta (cioè aumentare da 10 a 11 m.a. lungo ogni angolo) = 220-242-264-286-330-374 m.a. Ripetere gli aumenti così ogni 4 giri altre 5 volte (dopo l’ultimo aumento ci sono 16 m.a. lungo ogni angolo). CI SARANNO 16 m.a + ochiello di cat + 16 m.a, quindi 16 m.a ad ogni lato della punta.
