EXPLANATIONS FOR THE PATTERN:

-------------------------------------------------------

RIDGE/GARTER STITCH (worked in the round):
1 ridge in height = 2 rounds; Knit 1 round and purl 1 round.

PATTERN: 
See diagram A.1.

DECREASE TIP:
Decrease 4 stitches on each decrease-round.
Decrease before the marker thread as follows: Work until there are 2 stitches left before marker thread, slip 1 stitch as if to knit, knit 1 and pass the slipped stitch over (= 1 stitch decreased). Repeat at each of the other marker threads (= 4 stitches decreased on round).
Decrease after the marker thread as follows:
Work as far as the marker thread, knit the next 2 stitches together (= 1 stitch decreased). Repeat at each of the other marker threads (= 4 stitches decreased).
Work decreases alternately before and after the marker thread each time you decrease.

-------------------------------------------------------

SKIRT - SHORT OVERVIEW OF THE PIECE:
The piece is worked in the round with circular needle.

SKIRT:
Cast on 264-264-288-312-336-336 stitches with circular needle size 3.5 mm and Muskat. Insert a marker thread at the beginning of the round. This thread follows your work upwards. Work 2 RIDGES - read description above. Change to circular needle size 4 mm and work pattern A.1 a total of 11-11-12-13-14-14 times on the round. REMEMBER THE KNITTING TENSION! When A.1 has been completed in height the piece measures approx. 20 cm. Now insert 4 marker threads in the piece as follows: One marker thread is inserted after 29-29-32-34-36-36 stitches, the next marker thread after 74-74-80-88-96-96 new stitches, the next marker thread after 58-58-64-68-72-72 new stitches and the last marker thread after 74-74-80-88-96-96 new stitches. There are 29-29-32-34-36-36 stitches left on round after the last thread. Continue with stocking stitch in the round. AT THE SAME TIME on the first round begin to decrease by each of the 4 marker threads – read DECREASE TIP. Decrease (alternately before and after the marker threads) every 2 cm 0-4-5-5-9-16 times and every cm 27-29-31-32-34-36 times (= a total of 27-25-26-27-25-20 decrease-rounds) = 156-164-184-204-236-256 stitches. When the piece measures 48-50-52-54-56-58 cm work a folding edge as follows: Work stocking stitch for 2 cm, then purl 1 round (= folding edge) and continue with stocking stitch for another 2 cm for the lining. Then loosely cast off.

ASSEMBLY:
Fold the lining towards the wrong side and sew down neatly. Leave a small opening to thread the elastic through.

Diagram

= knit
= purl
= between 2 stitches make 1 yarn over; on the next round knit or purl the yarn overs (as the diagram shows) to leave holes
= between 2 stitches make 1 yarn over; on the next round knit the yarn overs twisted to avoid holes
= knit 2 together
= slip 1 stitch as if to knit, knit 1 and pass the slipped stitch over the knitted stitch
= purl 2 together
= slip 1 stitch as if to knit, knit 2 together and pass the slipped stitch over the knitted together stitches
= knit 3 together (= 2 stitches decreased)
= When working this round, displace the beginning of the round 1 stitch backwards; i.e. the beginning of the round with a star is the last stitch on the previous round. When A.1 has been worked over all stitches on the round, knit the next stitch. Then begin the next round as before.

At the point of starting the decrease rows. Have placed stitch markers and understand about alternating before and after marker for decreases. Just want to clarify that the first decreases are every 3/4” four times and then decreases are every 3/8” twenty nine times. Or are first four decreases happening simultaneously?

Hi Lane, The first decreases are every 3/4 inch then after that the next 29 decreases are every 3/8 inch. Happy knitting!
