18 sts and 9 rows = 4.5” in base patt with larger hook, 1 love knot column = 1” wide.
This seamless skirt begins with a waistband foundation worked sideways, in one step creating a pretty finished edge, holes for threading a drawstring, and a starting round for the solid crochet fabric. Vertical lines of Solomon’s knots act as gores, making a gentle curve at the hop and eventually kicking out the flared hem.
