The models shown on the images are worked in other yarns than Önling No 20 and 8, but if you wish to knit a skirt in very similar colors, we recommend the following combinations:
Brown: Önling no 20, col 70 grey-brown mix and Önling No 8, col 351 Brown
Recommended needles: 4,5 mm circular needle (60 and 80 and/or 100 cm) and 4 mm needle (80 or 100 cm), 3,5 mm needle (60 cm)
Gauge: 19 sts x 32 rows in waffle texture on needle no. 4,5 mm = 10 x 10 cm
Procedure: The skirt is worked top down. First, the waistband is worked in stockinette stitch in the round. It is then folded in half and knitted down. From here, you work in waffle texture and short rows are worked to lengthen the back relative to the front. Then, waffle texture is worked in the round with increases for the hips on both sides of the work.
