Inc as follows before marker: Work until 1 st remains before marker and inc 1 st by making a YO.
Inc as follows after marker: Work until 1 st after marker and 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 hole.

To avoid a tight cast-off edge you may use a needle ½ size larger.

Worked top down in the round on circular needle. Rounds start mid back.

Cast on 138-150-164-184-206-230 sts on circular needle size 4 mm with Karisma. Work in stocking st for 2 cm, P 1 round (= folding edge), continue in stocking st for 2 cm. Now measure piece from folding edge. On next round insert 6 markers in the piece as follows: Work 12-13-15-17-18-20 sts, insert a marker, then insert 5 markers 23-25-27-30-34-38 sts apart, work the remaining 11-12-14-17-18-20 sts remain on round. Move the markers upwards when working. REMEMBER THE KNITTING TENSION On next round inc 1 st before every marker – see INCREASE TIP. Inc like this alternately before and after markers every 6th-5th-4th-4th-4th-4th round 8-10-12-13-14-14 times in total = 186-210-236-262-290-314 sts. On next round, inc 0-0-2-4-6-6 sts evenly = 186-210-238-266-296-320 sts. Then continue in stocking st until piece measures 28-30-32-34-36-38 cm. Now work flounce as follows:
* K 5-5-6-6-7-7, P 1, 1 YO *, repeat from *-* the entire round = 217-245-272-304-333-360 sts. On next round P YOs twisted to avoid holes. Then continue with K over K and P over P. When 4 round have been worked, inc 2 sts in every section with P as follows: * K 5-5-6-6-7-7, 1 YO, 2 P, 1 YO *, repeat from *-* the entire round = 279-315-340-380-407-440 sts. Inc like this on each side of every section with P every 5th round 3 more times = 465-525-544-608-629-680 sts. Then continue with K over K and P over P until piece measures 50-52-54-56-58-60 cm. Cast off with K over K and P over P - READ CAST-OFF TIP.

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

Love the pleats in this skirt, it makes the skirt very feminine

I just love kick pleats and full hem skirts - so girly! This one would look striking at work as well as being glam enough for date night.
