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.
GARTER ST (worked in the round):
1 ridge = 2 rounds. * K 1 round and P 1 round *, repeat from *-*.

INCREASE TIP (applies to distribution of inc):
To calculate how often inc should be done, use the total no of sts on row (e.g. 150 sts) and divide by no of inc to be done (e.g. 8) = 18.8. I.e. in this example inc after approx. every 19th st.
NOTE: Inc 1 st by making 1 YO. On next round K YO twisted (if next round is in stocking st) or P twisted (if next round is P) to avoid holes.

See diagrams A.1 to A.4.

Worked in the round on circular needle, top down.
Cast on 150-168-184-204-230-256 sts on circular needle size 3 mm with Muskat. Work 2 cm in stocking st (= hem), then P 1 round (= folding edge). Switch to circular needle size 3.5 mm. Insert 1 marker in piece, NOW MEASURE PIECE FROM HERE. Work in stocking st. When piece measures 3-3-4-4-5-5 cm, inc 8-6-10-6-4-4 sts evenly - READ INCREASE TIP = 158-174-194-210-234-260 sts. REMEMBER THE KNITTING TENSION When piece measures 6-6-8-8-10-10 cm, switch to circular needle size 3 mm. Work 2 ridges in GARTER ST - see explanation above and inc AT THE SAME TIME 10-6-10-6-6-4 sts evenly on 1st round = 168-180-204-216-240-264 sts. Switch back to circular needle size 3.5 mm and work pattern in the round according to diagram A.1A (= 14-15-17-18-20-22 repetitions of 12 sts). After A.1A work A.1B. When A.1B has been worked one time vertically, there are 196-210-238-252-280-308 sts on needle. Work A.1C one time vertically. Switch to circular needle size 3 mm and work 2 ridges while inc 27-19-15-7-9-5 sts evenly on 1st round = 223-229-253-259-289-313 sts. Switch back to circular needle size 3.5 mm and work pattern in the round according to diagram A.2 as follows: Work A.2A (= 7 sts), repeat A.2B until 6 sts remain on round (= 35-36-40-41-46-50 repetitions of 6 sts) and finish with A.2C (= 6 sts). When A.2 has been worked 2 times vertically, switch to circular needle size 3 mm. Work 2 ridges while AT THE SAME TIME inc 29-23-23-17-11-11 sts evenly on 1st round = 252-252-276-276-300-324 sts. Switch back to circular needle size 3.5 mm again and work pattern in the round according to diagram A.3 (= 21-21-23-23-25-27 repetitions of 12 sts). When A.3 has been worked one time vertically, there are 273-273-299-299-325-351 sts on needle. Now repeat A.X over A.3 until piece measures approx. 42-44-46-48-50-52 cm (or desired length, approx. 4 cm remain until finished measurements). Work pattern in the round according to diagram A.4 and then LOOSELY cast off.

Fold the hem towards the WS and fasten with neat stitches - NOTE: Leave a little opening to thread the elastic through.

Good morning, I have a question: How can I work pattern A3 without circular neeedls? How can I start the pattern at rows 11 and 17? Thank you very much!

DROPS Design 17.05.2018 kl. 13:27:

Dear Irene, you can try starting with K2 tog, YO over the first 2 sts 1st repeat A.3 and finish with YO, slip 1 as if to K, K1, psso. Happy knitting!

Jamie 02.04.2018 - 23:03:

Bonjour ! Diagramme A2B troisième rang commence par une maille endroit et puis un jeté? ou par deux mailles ensemble et un jeté? Merci

DROPS Design 03.04.2018 kl. 10:02:

Bonjour Jamie, au 3ème rang de A.2, tricotez les 2 dernières mailles de A.2A/A.2B avec la 1ère m de A.2B/du A.2B suivant/de A.2C. Le jeté après la double diminution devient la 1ère maille du A.2B suivant/de A.2C. Bon tricot!

Hi, what is the gauge on the skirt? I'm not able to find it.

DROPS Design 16.01.2017 kl. 16:59:

Dear Maria, you will find gauge under tab "Materials" tog with amount of yarn and needle sizes. Happy knitting!

Alex 14.10.2016 - 22:11:

Hello! I'm on chart A.2 and my question is: where A.2C "meet" A.2A is the pattern different from the rest of the row? Thanks a lot

DROPS Design 15.10.2016 kl. 12:33:

Hello Alex. The pattern is mainly the same. You will just find 1 st more between the last repeat on round (A.2c) and first repeat on next round (A.2a). Also on round 3: you finish A.2c with: slip 1 st as if to K, K 1, psso, and you start A.2a with: K 2 tog, whereas, on the rest of round, where A.2a meet A.2b and where A.2b meet A.2c you finish/start with slip 1 st as if to K, K 2 tog, psso. Happy knitting!

Hélène Decq 08.09.2016 - 11:06:

Bonjour, Je suis en train de réaliser ce tricot et je ne comprends pas le schéma A.3 aux rangs 11 et 17. Pourquoi le diagramme est-il décalé? Comment prendre en compte ce décalage dans les rangs pour garder le dessin? Doit-on tricoter 1 maille ou 3 mailles endroits en début de rang? Merci beaucoup pour votre réponse et l'aide que vous pourrez apporter!

DROPS Design 08.09.2016 kl. 13:48:

Bonjour Mme Decq, lorsque vous tricotez le 1er A.3 du tour, tricotez les 2 premières m à l'end et commencez le diagramme ensuite à la 1ère case = 1 m end, 2 m ens à l'end, 1 jeté etc... terminez le diagramme en tricotant la dernière m du 1er motif avec les 2 premières m du motif suivant = le 1er jeté = dernière m du motif, surjet double + jeté = 2 premières m du motif suivant. Ainsi, à la fin du tour, quand il reste 1 m, faites 1 jeté (= dernière m du tour), glissez la dernière m du tour, tricotez les 2 premières m du tour ens à l'end, passez la m glissée par-dessus la m tricotée = 1ère m du tour, 1 jeté = 2ème m du tour. Bon tricot!

Tina Schjønberg 16.06.2016 - 08:34:

Efter mønsterdelen A.1B er der vist 2 lininer glatstrik.... Herefter skal man begynde på mønster A.1C. Som også starter med 2 omgange glatstrik... Kommer her ikke 2 omgange for meget? Skal man ikke starte direkte på mønsterdelen på 1C.

DROPS Design 16.06.2016 kl. 14:30:

Hej Tina. Mönstret skulle vaere korrekt, men synes du selv det er paenere kan du jo undlade de 2 omg glatstrik. God fornöjelse videre.

Steffi 23.03.2016 - 10:46:

Bin jetzt bei Muster A3 angelangt. Habe jetzt Runde 10 fertig. Werde aber aus dem Diagramm in Runde 11 und 17 nicht schlau. Warum ist diese Runde versetzt? Hat das eine Bedeutung oder stricke ich einfach normal weiter? Danke

DROPS Design 23.03.2016 kl. 14:23:

Liebe Steffi, das Diagramm ist in dieser Runde nur wegen der Darstellung verschoben, stricken Sie ganz normal weiter und lassen Sie sich davon nicht irritieren.

Lisa 19.03.2016 - 20:45:

I'm stuck on chart A.2. I'm at the end of round 3 and have 6 st left. I'm not sure if I've done something wrong, though everything looks fine. I can't do the first or last 6 st in the pattern as it's in the middle of the slip 1, K2T, psso part. The 6th st at the beginning of the round is the one to be slipped. Is that what I do? Thanks for any help!

DROPS Design 21.03.2016 kl. 09:51:

Dear Lisa, the video below shows how to work a similar diagram (shown for another pattern but diagram is still the same). Check you have correct amount of sts before starting A.2 (= 223-229-253-259-289-313 sts) and then work: A.2A (= 7 sts), repeat A.2B until 6 sts remain on round (= 35-36-40-41-46-50 repetitions of 6 sts) and finish with A.2C (= 6 sts). Happy knitting!

Lisa 20.02.2016 - 17:47:

I'm considering making this skirt. I've scoured the pattern several times and cannot find any schematics for it so I'm not certain what size to make without this information. Thanks for any help.

DROPS Design 22.02.2016 kl. 09:39:

Dear Lisa, you will find the measurement chart at the bottom of the pattern - measurements are in cm (convert here into inch) taken flat from side to side. Happy knitting!
