Beginning at waist, make ch slightly larger than waist measure. Turn. 1st row: S c in 4th ch from hook, * skip 2 sts, s c in next st, ch 3, s c in same st as last s c was made. Repeat from * to within last 3 sts of ch. Then skip 2 sts, and s c, ch 1, d c in last st of ch. Ch 4, turn. 2nd row: S c in d c of previous row, * in center ch of next ch-3 make s c, ch 3, s c. Repeat from * across, ending row with s c, ch 1, d c. Ch 4, turn. 3rd to 8th rows incl: Same as 2nd row. Do not turn at end of 8th row, but continue working all around skirt. The 1st 8 rows form an opening at side. 9th rnd: Increase 6 times on this rnd. Measure work and divide in 6ths. Mark these divisions and increase at these points—making an increase at each side, two in front and two in back. Increase, as follows: Work in st at increasing point, making s c, ch 3, s c, ch 3, s c, ch 3, s c. (This is a 3 mesh increase in 1 st.)

10th rnd: Work mesh over mesh as before with no increases. Work evenly for 2½ inches. Increase on next rnd, making the 3-mesh increase in mesh which is directly in line with center mesh of 3-mesh increase made in 9th rnd. Continue around. Work 2¾ inches, increase on next rnd. Work 3 inches, increase on next rnd. Work 3¼ inches, increase on next rnd. Work 5 inches, increase on next rnd. Work 9½ inches or until skirt is ½ inch shorter than desired length.

   Then work 2 d c in each mesh around, join with sl st, ch 3 and work d c in each d c of previous rnd and break off.
