For the skirt part from a longitudinal edge pick up 208 (224) sts = 13 (14) repeats (from each R 1 st) and the skirt pattern in sts str: 1x the 1st and 2nd round, the 2nd round up to 40 cm br, then 3rd and 4th round str = 195 (210) sts.

Completion: Close the shoulder and side seams. Crochet the cut edges with Kett-M. Feed 3 rows of rubber thread in the upper part from the left side. For the skirt part to fall balloon-shaped, a jersey or satin lining must be sewn. Cut one piece of fabric 50 cm long and 102 (108) cm wide. Cut a piece of fabric 22 cm long and 78 (84) cm wide for the hem. For both parts close the 50 cm long and 22 cm long edge with 1 cm seam allowance. Crimp the large piece of fabric at the top and bottom to 76 (82) cm. Double the hem strip and stitch together both parts. Sew the lining at the upper edge of the knit and sew the hem seam of the lining with loose hand stitches on the knitted part.
