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.

The piece is worked in the round, top down with circular needle.

SKIRT:
Cast on 124-134-144-154-164 stitches with circular needle size 3 mm and Fabel / Safran. Work 6 cm stocking stitch. The next round is worked as follows: Fold the cast-on edge toward the back, so that the 6 cm which have been worked lie double (with the right side outwards). Work 1 stitch from the needle, AT THE SAME TIME work this stitch together with 1 stitch from the cast-on edge, continue in this way until there are 4 stitches left, work 4 stitches without working the cast-on edge as well (= hole to thread the elastic through). Change to circular needle size 4 mm, knit 1 round where you decrease 4 stitches evenly along the round = 120-130-140-150-160 stitches. Insert 10 marker threads in the piece, with 11-12-13-14-15 stitches between each (insert the marker threads in one stitch). Continue working stocking stitch, AT THE SAME TIME increase 1 stitch with a yarn over on the right side of each marker thread, increase every 2nd round, a total of 27-33-40-48-56 times = 390-460-540-630-720 stitches – the increased stitches are knitted on the next round so that they make holes. REMEMBER THE KNITTING TENSION! After the last increase (the piece measures approx. 22-26-31-37-42 cm) loosely cast off in knit as follows: Knit 1, ((** push the right-hand needle in between the first 2 stitches on the left needle (in other words, between the stitches on the needle, not through the stitches), make 1 yarn over the right needle, pull the yarn over out between the stitches and place it on the left needle **, repeat from **-** 2 more times (= 3 new stitches on the left needle). * Knit the first stitch on the left needle, pass the first stitch on the right needle over the last stitch knitted *)), repeat from *-* a total of 6 times and repeat from ((-)) along the whole skirt until there is 1 stitch remaining, cut the strand and pull it through the last stitch.

Thread the trouser elastic into the fold and sew the opening closed.

Can you suggest an alternative edging for this skirt? The picot bind off is not going to work because it's going to buckle and roll. I have no idea how you made it look perfectly flat in the picture, maybe pressing it will help for a little while, but it WILL start buckling again pretty qiuckly. Solutions?

Dear Mrs Wolline, Have you seen the video to the skirt? you can block the skirt: moisten it and let it dry flat (with pins if necessary), the edge shouldn't roll anymore; you might have to repeat the process after every washing. Happy knitting!

Jeg forstår ikke, der skal strikkes 21 masker på pinde 4 på 10cm, når begge garner er 24 m på pinde 4 på10 cm. Skulle man så ikke strikke med et helt andet garn.

DROPS Design 09.09.2019 kl. 14:39:

Hei Susanne. Både i DROPS Fabel og DROPS Safran oppgir vi en strikkefasthet p 24 masker på 10 cm på pinne 3 (ikke 4). På denne oppskriften oppgir vi en annen strikkefasthet (får å få et luftigere skjørt), der det strikkes på pinne 4 (21 masker p 10 cm). God Fornøyelse!

Bonjour les jupes au tricot peut ont les faire avec 2 aiguilles droites merci

DROPS Design 02.04.2019 kl. 15:31:

Bonjour Mme Arnoux, vous trouverez ici comment adapter un modèle sur aiguilles droites. Bon tricot!

Hemina 26.02.2019 - 13:15:

Jeg kan slet ikke få pindene til at passe med opskriften. Jeg har lavet flere strikkeprøver med størrelse 4, 4.5, 5, 5,5 eller 6 passer. Der er alt for mange masker på 10 cm uanset hvad jeg gør. Har I et godt god råd til hvad jeg skal gøre?

DROPS Design 08.03.2019 kl. 09:48:

Hei Hemina. Det som er viktig er at strikkefastheten din stemmer overens med den angitte strikkefastheten i oppskriften. Her er dette 21 masker i bredden x 28 pinner i høyden med glattstrikk = 10 x 10 cm. Pinnenummer er kun veiledende, og du må selv justere dette slik at strikkefatsheten din blir 21x28. Hvis det betyr at du må gå opp 2 eller 3 pinnestørrelser i forhold til oppskriften er det dette som er riktig for deg. God fornøyelse

Gitte Malling 06.02.2019 - 09:44:

Jeg er næsten færdig med nederdelen, men pivot-kanten krøller (bukker udad). Gør jeg mon noget forkert?

DROPS Design 07.02.2019 kl. 15:56:

Hej Gitte, har du se de 2 videoer med picot-kant som hører til nederdelen (du finder dem til venstre i opskriften lige under billedet). Som du kan se så vil den bukke lidt udad. God fornøjelse!

Susanne Jørgensen 08.01.2019 - 14:30:

Skal man strikke på p. 3 eller 4? Der står p. 4 i indledningen, men p. 3 i opskriften. Hvis det ikke er pind 4, er strikkefastheden så også angivet forkert i indledningen?

DROPS Design 15.01.2019 kl. 08:13:

Hei Susanne. Du legger opp på pinne 3 for å strikke belegg, og så bytter du til pinne 4 når belegget er ferdig. Det er strikkefastheten som bestemmer pinnestørrelsen, og du må strikke med de pinnene som gir deg den angitte strikkefastheten (21 masker x 28 pinner). På belgget går du ned 1 pinnestørrelse i forhold til de pinnene du bruker på resten av skjørtet. God fornøyelse.

Ich habe den Rock für meine Enkeltochter gestrickt. Sie ist total begeistert und dreht sich unaufhörlich, weil der Rock so schön "fliegt". Sehr schön und einfach zum Nacharbeiten.

Marta 24.08.2018 - 00:29:

Skjørtet ble veldig fint, enkel oppskrift å følge og det tok ikke lang tid å strikke!

Lisbeth 31.05.2018 - 08:12:

Er der indsneget en fejl ? str 2: der står jeg skal sætte 10 markering med 11 masker imellem - men der er 120 masker - Er det ikke en skrivefejl - skal der ikke være 12 masker imellem?

DROPS Design 04.06.2018 kl. 08:52:

Hej Lisbeth, det stemmer, du skal sætte mærketråden i hver 12. maske (og altså 11 imellem hver) God fornøjelse!
