The skirt is knitted from waistline to bottom. Repeat 24 shown stitches 14 times in round. Finish last row with crochet hook.

Upper part is knitted from waistline to the top. Back and front parts are made separately. The diagram shows only half of front/back piece so do hidden part symmetrically. Make some folds/gatherings on the top line to fix the dress more precisely to your body. Use crochet hook for shoulder straps and crab stitch for top line.

Insert elastic into waistline. Do not forget lining.

O - “make 1” (yarn over - y.o.; increase).

/ or \ - both mean “knit two together” ; when you knit 2 together, you make slanted decrease - the direction of slash shows the direction the slanted decrease lies. Usually this symbol pairs with “make 1” (O/) the O “sits” on the slash.

triangle^ means “slip 1, knit 2 together, pass slipped stitch over” (s.1, k.2tog., p.s.s.o.). This double decrease makes a triangular block of 3 stitches. Usually, it has a “make 1” on either side: O^O so the two new stitches replace the cast off ones.
