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.



Texture in garment will stretch when worn and has 2 knitting gauges.
Knitting gauge 1 applies when garment is worked and is flat.
The garment should have this knitting gauge when it is worked.
Knitting gauge 2 is the knitting gauge the skirt will have at the waist when the garment is worn.
Knitting gauge vertically is given according to knit stitch, which is knitted over 1 round less than purl stitch, because knit stitch is slipped loosely on to right needle every other round. I.e. 24 rows vertically measured in knit stitch on 10 cm / 4'' = 48 rows measured in purl stitch on 10 vertically.
Measurements in chart are given in cm when garment is worn.

INCREASE TIP-1 (evenly):
To calculate how to increase evenly, use the total number of stitches on row (e.g. 172 stitches) and divide stitches by number of increases to be done (e.g. 26) = 6.6. 
In this example increase by making 1 yarn over after alternately approx. every 6th and 7th stitch. On next round work yarn over twisted to avoid hole.

All increases are done on a round where yarn over and knit stitch are knitted together.
Work 5 stitches in knit stitch and yarn over as follows: Knit yarn over and knit stitch together but wait to slip the yarn over and worked stitch off the needle * make 1 yarn over on right needle and knit knit stitch and yarn over together *, work from *-* 2 times in total = 5 stitches (= 4 stitches increased)

See diagram A.1.




Worked in the round on circular needle, top down. First work a hem to thread the elastic through. Then work rib and English rib. Texture in garment will behave differently when garment is worn - read KNITTING GAUGE.

Cast on 172-188-202-228-250-292 stitches on circular needle size 2.5 mm / US 1.5 with Nord. Purl 1 round. Then work 4 rounds in stockinette stitch. Purl 1 round and increase 26-28-32-36-38-44 stitches evenly (= folding edge) - read INCREASE TIP-1 = 198-216-234-264-288-336 stitches. Insert 1 marker thread in the piece. NOW MEASURE PIECE FROM HERE!

Work rib (purl 2/knit 1) for 8 cm / 3 1/8''. Switch to circular needle size 3 mm / US 2.5 and work A.1 over all stitches (= 66-72-78-88-96-112 times in the round). When first round in A.1 has been worked, there are 132-144-156-176-192-224 stitches on needle. Yarn overs are not counted as stitches. When A.1 has been worked 1 time vertically, repeat A.1a until finished measurements. REMEMBER THE GAUGE!
When piece measures 10 cm / 4'' from marker thread, insert 1 marker in every 11th-12th-13th-11th-12th-14th knit stitch (= 6-6-6-8-8-8 markers). Then increase 4 stitches in every stitch with marker – read INCREASE TIP-2 (= 24-24-24-32-32-32 stitches increased).
Continue in the round with pattern, work the increased stitches in pattern. Increase like this every 4-4-4-4½-4½-4½ cm until piece measures 48-50-52-54-56-58 cm / 19''-19¾''-20½''-21¼''-22''-22¾'' from marker thread. There are approx. 348-384-396-464-512-544 stitches on needle. Adjust so that last round is a round with yarn overs. Then bind off with knit over knit and purl over purl, BUT bind off yarn overs as regular stitches by knitting, this is done to avoid a tight bind-off edge.

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


All measurements in charts are in cm.

= purl 1
= purl 2 together
= 1 yarn over, slip 1 stitch on to right needle purlwise
= knit yarn over and knit stitch together
= knitting direction

Bonjour, je débute au tricot et souhaite essayer de réaliser cette jupe en longueur 65 cm pour voir ce que cela donne (un peu au-dessous des genoux), en taille M, pouvez-vous me dire combien de grammes je dois utiliser en plus? Merci d'avance pour votre réponse! Et merci pour votre site, ses jolis modèles et tutoriels qui les accompagnent. Bien cordialement, Alice

Der er vist sneget sig en lille fejl ind i diagrammet... Tegnet for omslag og ret sammen er forskeligt i forklaring og diagrammet
