Pattern instructions

NOTE: This pattern is written in British English. All measurements in charts are in cm. For conversion from cm to inches - click here. There are different terms for crocheting in British and American English. If this pattern includes crochet, click for "crochet terms" here. For this pattern in American English, please click here.
Replace first tr from beg of row/round with 3 ch. Finish row with 1 tr in 3rd ch from previous row (when piece is worked back and forth) and finish round with 1 sl st in 3rd ch from beg of round (when piece is worked in the round).
Replace first dtr at beg of round with 4 ch, finish round with 1 sl st in 4th ch from beg of round.

See diagrams A.1 to A.3.

Because of the weight of the yarn all measurements must be done by holding the piece up otherwise the skirt will be too long when worn.

Inc 1 tr by working 2 tr in same tr.

Work 1 tr but wait with last pull through (= 2 sts on hook), then work next tr but on last pull through, pull yarn through all 3 sts on hook = 1 st dec.

Work back and forth, top down to after vent in the side, then work in the round.
Work 186-209-232-258-279-305 LOOSE ch (incl 3 ch to turn with) on hook size 3.5 mm with Cotton Viscose. Work 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 tr = 158-178-198-220-238-260 tr. Then work back and forth with 1 tr in every tr - READ CROCHET INFO. REMEMBER THE CROCHET TENSION! When 5 rows have been worked vertically, insert 6 markers in the piece as follows: First marker after 14-14-16-20-21-22 tr, then there should be 26-30-33-36-39-43 tr between every marker, there will be 14-14-17-20-22-23 tr after last marker at the end of row. On next row inc 1 tr before all markers – READ INCREASE TIP! Repeat inc every other row 7-7-8-9-10-11 times in total - NOTE: Inc alternately before and after markers = 200-220-246-274-298-326 tr. AT THE SAME TIME when 12 rows in total have been worked vertically, end the vent in the side and continue piece in the round, beg round in the side – READ CROCHET INFO! When piece measures 29-31-33-35-37-39 cm – READ MEASURING TIP – dec 8-10-12-10-10-8 tr evenly on next round – READ DECREASE TIP. 192-210-234-264-288-318 tr remain on round.

Then work PATTERN A.1, A.2 and A.3 as follows:
ROUND 1: Work 4 ch (= 1 dtr), 3 dtr in first tr, skip 2 tr, * 1 dc in next tr, skip 2 tr, 7 dtr in next tr, skip 2 tr *, repeat from *-* 31-34-38-43-47-52 times in total, 1 dc in next tr, skip 2 tr, 3 dtr in same tr as first dtr-group from beg of round, finish with 1 sl st in 4th ch from beg of round = 32-35-39-44-48-53 fans. REMEMBER THE CROCHET TENSION!
ROUND 2: 1 ch, 1 dc in 4th ch from beg of 1st round, * 7 dtr in next dc, skip 3 dtr, 1 dc in next dtr *, repeat from *-* 31-34-38-43-47-52 times in total, 7 dtr in next dc, finish with 1 sl st in first ch from beg of round = 32-35-39-44-48-53 fans.
ROUND 3: 4 ch (= 1 dtr), 3 dtr in first dc, * skip 3 dtr, 1 dc in next dtr, 7 dtr in next dc *, repeat from *-* 31-34-38-43-47-52 times in total, skip 3 dtr, 1 dc in next tr, skip 3 tr, 3 dtr in same dc as first dtr-group from beg of round, finish with 1 sl st in 4th ch from beg of round = 32-35-39-44-48-53 fans.
Repeat 2nd-3rd round until fan pattern measures approx. 16 cm - or continue to repeat the two rounds until desired measurements. Piece measures 45-47-49-51-53-55 cm in total. Fasten off.

Along the opening on front piece work buttonhole loops as follows (beg at the bottom): 2 dc in first tr, 3 ch, skip 1 tr, * work 2 dc in each of the next 2 tr, 3 ch, skip 1 tr *, repeat from *-* 3 times in total and finish with 2 dc in last tr at the top, turn and work back as follows: 1 dc in every dc and 3 dc in every ch-loop.

Along the other side of the opening work 5 rows with dc back and forth (on 1st row work 2 dc in every tr = 24 dc), cut the yarn. Sew the buttons on to the button folding edge.

Er det egentlig halvstaver som skjørtet på bildet er heklet i, og ikke staver slik som det står i mønsteret? Skal det hekles i forreste eller bakre ledd eller i begge ledd?

DROPS Design 25.10.2016 kl. 14:58:

Hej Alvilde. Det er staver paa billedet og du skal hekle igennem begge ledd.

Ciao, quando nel lavoro della gonna cominciano gli aumenti e scrivete: "Ripetere questi aumenti ogni 2 righe 7-7-8-9-10-11 volte in tutto" significa che la prima e la seconda riga faccio l'aumento, la terza e la quarta no, la quinta e la sesta sì, le settima e l'ottava no e così via per 7-7-8-9-10-11 volte in tutto? Cioè nel caso delle 7 volte in tutto alla fine avrei fatto 28 righe? Ringrazio anticipatamente per la vostra disponibilità. Chiara

DROPS Design 26.02.2015 kl. 21:30:

Buonasera Chiara, quando viene indicato di ripetere gli aumenti ogni 2 righe significa 1 riga sì e 1 riga no, cioè prima riga aumento, la seconda no, la terza si, la quarta no, la quinta si, la sesta no, la settima si, l'ottava no, la nona si, la decima no, l'undicesima si, la dodicesima no, la tredicesima si. Ci riscriva se ha altri dubbi. Buon lavoro!

Om het patr00n af te drukken wordt automatische de bladzijde met de bollen garen mee afgedrukt dat vindt ik zonde van de inkt die onnodig verbruikt wordt als ik meerdere patronen nodig heb,kan dat niet anders? bedankt voor uw begrip.

Cinzia 26.02.2014 - 13:30:

Salve, intanto complimenti per i nuovi modelli!! poi, vorrei sapere cosa significa in questo modello, "proseguire in tondo, iniziando il giro sul lato" grazie

DROPS Design 26.02.2014 kl. 15:27:

Buongiorno Cinzia, fino a questo momento ha lavorato avanti e indietro, ora si inizia a lavorare in tondo, quindi senza cuciture finali, e il giro inizia a lato (si ricordi di leggere le informazioni per il lavoro). Ci riscriva se non è chiaro. Buon lavoro!
