INFORMATION FOR PATTERN:

PATTERN: 
See diagrams A.1 and A.2. A.2 shows how round begins/ends when working in the round.

CROCHET TIP – when working back and forth:
Work 3 chain stitches at the beginning of rows starting with treble crochets (does not replace first treble crochet). Work 1 chain stitch at the beginning of rows starting with double crochets (Does not replace first double crochet).

DECREASE TIP:
TREBLE CROCHETS:
Decrease 1 treble crochet by working 2 treble crochets together as follows: 
Work 1 treble crochet in first stitch, but wait with the last yarn over and pull through (= 2 loops on hook), work 1 treble crochet in next stitch/around the chain stitch, pull the thread through all 3 loops on hook when making the last pull through (= 1 treble crochet decreased).
DOUBLE CROCHETS:
Decrease 1 double crochet by working 2 double crochets together as follows: Work 1 double crochet, but wait with the last yarn over and pull through (= 2 loops on hook), then work next double crochet, pull through all 3 loops on hook when making the last pull through (= 1 double crochet decreased).

DECREASE TIP (evenly):
To calculate how to evenly decrease, use the total number of stitches (e.g. 156 stitches) and divide with the number of decreases to be made (e.g. 6) = 26. In this example every 25th and 26th stitches are worked together.
-------------------------------------------------------

SKIRT: 
The skirt has 10 cm vent in each side at the bottom, the piece is first worked back and forth in 2 pieces until the vents is finished, then work in the round, but turn every round and work back and forth on the round to make sure the texture is the same all the way. When the piece is divided to make the button front band, work back and forth again, but over both the front and back piece (to make a vent in one side).

FRONT PIECE:
Work 90-97-104-111-125-139 chain stitches with Muskat on hook size 4 mm. Continue with 1 double crochet in the 2nd chain stitch from hook, then work 1 double crochet in each of the next 4 chain stitches, * skip 1 chain stitch, 1 double crochet in each of the next 6 chain stitches *, repeat from *-* the entire row = 78-84-90-96-108-120 double crochets (chain stitch used to turn with are also counted as 1 double crochet). Turn and work 1 double crochet in every double crochet. Now work according to diagram A.1 (A.1 is repeated in height until finished measurement) – read CROCHET TIP! REMEMBER THE CROCHET TENSION! After 10 cm put piece aside and work back piece.

BACK PIECE:
Work 90-97-104-111-125-139 chain stitches with Muskat on hook size 4 mm. Continue with 1 double crochet in the 2nd chain stitch from hook, then work 1 double crochet in each of the next 4 chain stitches, * skip 1 chain stitch, 1 double crochet in each of the next 6 chain stitches *, repeat from *-* the entire row = 78-84-90-96-108-120 double crochets (chain stitch used to turn with are also counted as 1 double crochet). Turn and work 1 double crochet in every double crochet. Now work according to diagram A.1. Continue until the piece measures 10 cm – end at the same round as the front piece.

SKIRT after vent:
Continue with pattern as follows - work stitches from the front piece first, then work stitches from the back piece, then the round is worked together with a slip stitch in 1st /3rd stitch on the round, work stitches in A.2, turn work. Continue like this with pattern according to diagrams A.1 and A.2. On the rounds with treble crochets or double crochets there are now 156-168-180-192-216-240 stitches on the round (A.2 is not included in the number of stitches). When the piece measures approx. 13-14-15-16-17-18 cm – make sure the next round is a round with treble crochets or double crochets (marked in diagram with a star), evenly decrease 6 stitches – read DECREASE TIP and DECREASE TIP (evenly). Repeat decreases a total of 6 times on the marked 6 rounds with treble crochets or double crochets = 120-132-144-156-180-204 stitches on a round with treble crochets or double crochets. Continue with A.1 and A.2. When the piece measures 28-30-32-34-36-38 cm, continue working back and forth, afterward a button front band shall be worked over the 12 cm at the top. Now the piece is not turned with A.2, but work back and forth in rows to make an opening in one side at the top – use CROCHET TIP! Continue back and forth according to A.1 until the piece measures 40-42-44-46-48-50 cm, end with a round marked with a star in the diagram. Cut and fasten the thread.

BUTTONHOLE LOOPS:
Work buttonhole loops along the side of the opening that is a part of the front piece as follows: (start from the bottom): 2 double crochets on a row with treble crochets/double crochets, 3 chain stitches, skip 1 cm, * work 2 double crochets around the next treble crochet/double crochet row, 3 chain stitches, skip 1 cm *, repeat from *-* 3 times more and end with 2 double crochets around the last treble crochet/double crochet row on top, turn and work as follows: 1 double crochet in each double crochet and 3 double crochets around every chain stitch-loop. Cut and fasten the thread.

BUTTON FOLDING EDGE:
Work 5 rows with double crochets back and forth on the other side of the opening (Work 2 double crochets around every treble crochet and 1 double crochet around every double crochet row on the 1st round), cut thread. Sew buttons on button folding edge.

DECORATIVE BORDER:
The decorative border is worked around the skirt’s bottom hem – work up and down the vents as well.
Work decorative border as follows: 1 double crochet, * 3 chain stitches, 1 treble crochet in 3rd chain stitch from hook, skip forward approx. 1 cm and make 1 double crochet *. Repeat from *-* entire round and finish with 1 slip stitch in first double crochet from the start of the round.

This pattern has been corrected. .

CROCHET TIP – when working back and forth:
