Pattern instructions

NOTE: This pattern is written in American English. All measurements in charts are in cm. For conversion from inches to cm - click here. There are different terms for crocheting in American and British English. If this pattern includes crochet, click for "crochet terms" here. For this pattern in British English, please click here.

Increase 1 stitch by picking up stitch from previous round and knitting the new stitch. When increasing after 1st and 3rd marker thread, pick up 1 stitch in first stitch loop after marker thread. When increasing before 2nd and 4th marker thread, pick up 1 stitch in last stitch loop before marker thread.

INCREASE TIP-2 (evenly):
To calculate how to increase evenly, use the total number of stitches on needle (e.g. 336 stitches) and divide stitches by number of increases to be done (e.g. 16) = 21.
In this example increase by making 1 yarn over after every 21st stitch. On next round work yarn overs twisted to avoid holes.

See diagrams A.1 and A.2. Choose diagram for your size (applies to A.2).

Round 1: * Knit 1, purl 1 *, repeat from *-* the entire round.
Round 2: Purl over knit and knit over purl.
Repeat 2nd round.

Worked in the round on circular needle, top down.
Cast on 152-168-184-208-232-256 stitches on circular needle size 4 mm / US 6 with Muskat. Work in stockinette stitch for 2 cm / 3/4'' for hem. Purl 1 round (= folding edge). Insert 1 marker in the piece. NOW MEASURE PIECE FROM HERE!
Continue in stockinette stitch. When piece measures 4-4-4-4-5-6 cm / 1 ½"-1 ½"-1 ½"-1 ½"-1 7/8"-2 3/8" from marker, insert 4 marker threads in piece as follows: Insert first marker thread after the first 17-20-23-28-33-38 stitches, insert 2nd marker thread after the next 42-44-46-48-50-52 stitches, insert 3rd marker thread after the next 34-40-46-56-66-76 stitches and insert 4th marker thread after the next 42-44-46-48-50-52 stitches. 17-20-23-28-33-38 stitches remain on round after last marker thread.
On next round, increase after 1st and 3rd marker thread and before 2nd and 4th marker thread – read INCREASE TIP-1 (= 4 stitches increased). Increase like this every 2½-2-2-2-2-2 cm 10-12-14-14-14-14 times in total = 192-216-240-264-288-312 stitches. REMEMBER THE GAUGE!
Work until piece measures 29-31-33-33-35-37 cm / 11 3/8"-12 1/8"-13"-13"-13 ¾"-14 ½" from marker. Now work A.1 in the round (= 16-18-20-22-24-26 repetitions of 12 stitches). On every round with arrow in A.1 displace the beginning of round 2 stitches to the left, i.e. pass the first 2 stitch on to right needle without working them, then work A.1 in the round. Work the 2 stitches passed on to right needle in last repetition of A.1. On next round knit all stitches and on next round after that, begin round as usual again. When A.1 has been worked, there are 256-288-320-352-384-416 stitches on needle.
Then work A.2 in the round (= 16-18-20-22-24-26 repetitions of 16 stitches). When A.2 has been worked, there are 336-378-420-440-480-520 stitches on needle. Knit 1 round while increasing 16-18-20-22-24-26 stitches evenly = 352-396-440-462-504-546 stitches. Switch to circular needle size 3.5 mm / US 4. Work in seed stitch in the round for 2 cm / 3/4''. Bind off with knit over knit and purl over purl. Skirt measures approx. 50-52-54-56-58-60 cm / 19 3/4''-20½''-21¼''-22''-22¾''-23 5/8'' from hem in the waist and down.

Fold the hem towards wrong side and fasten neatly by sewing, let there be a small opening to thread the elastic through.
