Work 153-169-190-211-227-248 ch (includes 3 ch to turn with) on hook size 4 mm / G/6 with Merino Extra Fine. Work first row as follows: 1 dc in 4th ch from hook (= 2 dc), 1 dc in each of the next 2-4-4-4-6-6 ch, * skip ch 1, 1 dc in each of the next 6 ch *, repeat from *-* 20-22-25-28-30-33 more times = 130-144-162-180-194-212 dc. Then work back and forth with 1 dc in every dc - READ CROCHET INFO. REMEMBER THE CROCHET GAUGE! When 4 rows have been worked vertically, insert 6 markers in the piece as follows: Work 10-12-13-15-17-19 dc, insert a marker, then insert 5 markers 22-24-27-30-32-35 dc apart. 10-12-14-15-17-18 dc remain after last marker. On next row inc 1 dc before all markers – READ INCREASE TIP! Repeat inc every other row/round 2-3-4-4-6-6 more times, AT THE SAME TIME when 9 rows have been worked in total vertically, end vent in the side and work piece in the round, beg in the side. Then inc every 3rd round 2 times more in all sizes = 160-180-204-222-248-266 dc. Continue with 1 dc in every dc.
When piece measures 30-31-32-33-34-35 cm / 11¾''-12¼''-12½''-13''-13 3/8''-13¾'' in total, work 1 round with 1 dc in every dc while AT THE SAME TIME inc 4-2-2-2-0-6 dc evenly = 164-182-206-224-248-272 dc. Now continue with pattern as follows: Work A.1 over the first 5 dc, then work A.2 25-28-32-35-39-43 times in width, A.3 over the last 9 dc. On 8th round in A.Z inc 18-18-18-24-24-24 dc evenly = 182-200-224-248-272-296 dc. Continue to work A.Z as before but now work A.2 28-31-35-39-43-47 times in width. When A.Z has been worked 1 time vertically, work A.Y over A.Z. Then work A.X over A.Y. On 2nd round in A.X inc 18 dc evenly in all sizes = 200-218-242-266-290-314 dc. Continue to work A.X as before but now work A.2 31-34-38-42-46-50 times in width. Then work A.Z over A.X. On 8th round in A.Z inc 18 dc evenly in all sizes = 218-236-260-284-308-332 dc. Continue to work A.Z as before but now work A.2 34-37-41-45-49-53 times in width. When A.Z has been worked 1 time vertically, work A.Y over A.Z 2-2-3-3-4-4 times in total vertically. Then work A.X over A.Y. On last round in A.X inc 23-21-13-21-13-5 dc evenly = 241-257-273-305-321-337 dc. Now work an edge as follows: Work A.5 15-16-17-19-20-21 times in total in width. (A.4 shows how round beg and ends.) When A.5 has been worked 1 time vertically, cut the thread and fasten tightly. Piece measures approx. 75-76-79-80-83-84 cm / 29"-30"-31"-31½"-32 3/4"-33".

BUTTONHOLE LOOPS:
Along the opening on front piece work buttonhole loops as follows (beg at the bottom): 2 sc around first dc, ch 3, skip 1 dc, * work 2 sc around next dc, ch 3, skip 1 dc *, repeat from *-* 2 more times and finish with 2 sc around last dc at the top, turn and work back as follows: 1 sc in every sc and 3 sc in every ch-space.

BUTTON FOLDING EDGE:
Along the other side of the opening work 5 rows with sc back and forth (on 1st row work 2 sc in every dc = 18 sc), cut the yarn. Sew the buttons on to the button folding edge.

EDGE:
Work an edge at top of waist on skirt as follows from RS: Fasten the strand with 1 sl st at the edge of button folding edge, ch 1, * ch 1, skip ch 1, 1 sc in next ch *, repeat from *-* along the entire edge of waist. Fasten off.

TWINED STRING:
Cut 2 lengths of yarn of 7 meters/ 7 1/2 yds. Twine the strands tog until they resist, fold the string double so that it twines again. Tie a knot in one end so that string stays twined. Thread string up and down in every other dc in the first row with dc in waist (thread pearls on the string if you want). Then make a tassel in each end by making a knot approx. 12 cm / 4¾'' from each end.
