Inc 1 st by making a YO. On next row K YO twisted (i.e. work in the back loop of st instead of front) to avoid holes.

There are now 14-14-12-12-12-14 rows in stocking st.

Work back and forth in stocking st and garter st on circular needle. Dec in one side - READ DECREASE TIP, and inc in the other side - READ INCREASE TIP, on every row from RS the entire piece, to get diagonal ridges. READ KNITTING TIP!

Loosely cast on 142-146-154-160-168-176 sts on circular needle size 3 mm with plum/beige/heather. Work 1 ridge in GARTER ST - see explanation above. Then work as follows on 1st row (= RS): Work SHORT ROWS - see explanation above. When short rows are done, work PATTERN - see explanation above - over the next 34-30-26-26-26-30 rows. REMEMBER THE KNITTING TENSION!
Continue to work short rows and pattern alternately as explained above 6-7-8-9-10-10 times in total, but in size S, M, L and XXXL work over 30-26-30-26 rows 2nd, 4th and 6th time pattern is worked. NOTE: In size XXXL work over 26 rows 8th and 10th time pattern is worked. There are 3-4-5-9-10-5 repetitions with pattern over 34-30-26-26-26-30 rows, and 3-3-3-0-0-5 repetitions with pattern over 30-26-30-0-0-26 rows.
When all repetitions with short rows and pattern have been worked, skirt measures approx. 70-76-84-90-100-108 cm in waist (i.e. on the side where sts were dec on every row from RS). Cast off.

Sew cast-on edge and cast-off edge tog. Sew neatly tog st by st. Make sure that to avoid a tight seam. Fold edge in waist (i.e. the side with yarn change) 2 cm on WS and fasten. Leave a little opening to thread the elastic through. Cut and fasten the yarn.

Do I complete all 14 rows of short pattern in lilac/green, then start row 15 following the pattern in the colours stated? If so, I have a wedge of colour when I do the short rows. Is this correct?

DROPS Design 17.12.2018 kl. 10:58:

Dear Mrs Wyatt, you first work the 14 rows (short rows in stocking stitch), then work 34-30-30 (see size) in PATTERN (starting on row 1 from RS with plum/beige/feather). Happy knitting!

Dawn 22.10.2018 - 20:40:

Hoping you can resolve my confusion on the short rows section - I just can't picture it. Am I doing the increase and decrease on the odd short rows each time? So essentially increasing a stitch just before I turn midway through a row? Have ordered the suggested yarns as I love the colourway and want to be clear as to what I'm doing before I start. Off to practice on some spare yarn before my order arrives. Thank you.

DROPS Design 23.10.2018 kl. 09:18:

Dear Dawn, you will have to decrease and to increase at the beginning of every row from RS in the short rows as well as in the rows over all sts. Happy knitting!

Heather 16.07.2018 - 21:23:

I am confused by what you mean can you explain: "but in sizes S,M,L and XXXL work over 30-26-30-26 rows 2nd, 4th and 6th time patter is worked".

DROPS Design 17.07.2018 kl. 07:46:

Dear Heather, it means that the second, fourth and the 6th time you repeat the pattern, the short rows are worked over 30 (for size S)-26 (M)-30 (L)-26 (XXXL) rows. Happy Knitting!

Str. XL. Jeg skal strikke 26 pinde mønster. Det giver 7 retriller i farve 02 og 6 glatstrikkede mellemrum af 2 pinde i farve 11 mellem de 7 retriller. På grund af de forkortede pinde, der kommer ret ofte, bliver vidden på nederdelen forneden meget bred og svarer ikke til bredden på målene selvom strikkefastheden passer og jeg ved at det er på diagonale. På billedet ser man 14 retriller mellem de forkortede pinde. Det giver ikke nær så meget vidde. Hvad går galt?

Joan De Mildt 22.04.2018 - 20:31:

Met welke kleuren is dit rokje gebreid? Niet alleen 02 en 11 zoals in het patroon staat. Is het 06 pink-purple?

DROPS Design 29.04.2018 kl. 17:52:

Hallo Joan, Ja hoor, deze is met 2 kleuren gebreid, doordat er kleurovergangen zitten in de bollen, lijkt het alsof er veel meer kleuren gebruikt zijn.

Liebes Drops Team, leider passt es immer noch nicht. Wegen der vorherigen Antwort: Von 30 R können nicht 14 Krausrippen sein sonst wären nur 2 R glatt gestrickt!? Meine vorherige Frage ist damit leider noch nicht beantwortet. Ich verstehe die Anleitung, nur diese stimmt nicht mit dem Bild überein. Das Würde ich gerne klären. Kann man das außerhalb dieses Forums lösen und evtl auch ein Bild schicken?

DROPS Design 30.01.2018 kl. 08:35:

Liebe Frau Otto, Anleitung stimmt schon und wurde schon mehrmals gestrickt. Bei der Größe M stricken Sie 30 Reihen Muster = 1 Krausrippe + 7 x (2 Reihen Glatt, 1 Krausrippe) = 30 Reihen und 8 Krausrippen. Viel Spaß beim stricken!

Lilian Otto 27.01.2018 - 20:30:

So habe ich die Anleitung auch verstanden. Auf dem Bild zähle ich im Bereich des Musters jedoch 14 x Krausrippen und 13 x je 2 Reihen glatt = 54 Reihen!? Und im Bereich des Musters spaltet sich aus einer Krausrippe nochmal eine Krausrippe + 2 R glatt re heraus? Davon steht nichts in der Anleitung. Bitte um Hilfe. Vielen Dank.

DROPS Design 29.01.2018 kl. 09:35:

Liebe Frau Otto, oops mein Fehler, Muster wird über 4 Reihen gestrickt (nur die Reihe 3 bis 6 wiederholen = 2 Reihen Glatt + 1 Krausrippe) dann wiederholen Sie 7 x die 4 Reihen = 28 Reihen + 2 Reihen glatt = 30 Reihen (= 14 Krausrippen). Viel Spaß beim stricken!

Lilian Otto 24.01.2018 - 00:18:

Ich stricke Größe M. Bei z. B. 30 R im Muster stricken verstehe ich: 2 R (Hin + Rück) kraus in Farbe 1 und 2 R glatt in Farbe 2 stricken. Danach sind es hier gezählt 8 Krausrippen und 7x dazwischen die glatt gestrickten Reihen bevor wieder ein Rapport verkürzte Reihen kommt. Auf dem Bild zähle ich in der Frontansicht zwischen den Rapporten 14x Krausrippen? Und sehe auch dass es auch "gespaltene Krausrippen" gibt die in der Anleitung nicht erwähnt werden? Danke!

DROPS Design 24.01.2018 kl. 09:49:

Liebe Frau Otto, Muster ist 6 Reihe (= 1 Krausrippe mit Farbe 1, 2 Reihe glatt rechts mit Farbe 2 und 1 Krausrippe mit Farbe 1). Sie strickend abwechselnd die verkürzten Reihen (= 13 Reihe in der Größe M) und einige Reihen im Muster (= 5 x die 6 Reihe): zuerst 30 Reihe, dann 26 Reihe, dann 30 Reihe, dann 26 Reihe, dann 30 Reihe, 1 x 26 Reihe und 2 x 30 Reihe (mit verkürzten Reihen inzwischen). Viel Spaß beim stricken!
