I am doing a drawstring instead of elastic, but good to know!

I started this pattern when it first came out but am hoping to pick it up again (now that things are slowing down slightly).  I am making this for myself as I am in desperate need of clothes to wear to work.  I have made the first 3 rows but its still a little eyelet-y.  Right now its going to be an "I see London, I see France" kind of skirt.  Any ideas on what I'm doing wrong?

Hi...this is the designer here...make sure you are working from the right scallop pattern....the first one for the top half of the skirt has M1 increases instead of yarn overs (which will come for the lower half of the skirt). If you are using the M1 increase just make sure that you are going into the strand the right way when you make the new stitch (there is a description of how to do it under the pattern notes). Hope that helps! Look forward to seeing an adult version.

Thanks Gudrun.  I had actually been knitting it all wrong so I had to start over but it's going fine now.  I was confused that you just did the A,B,C, or D pattern stitch for the first row of each stripe and then knit 3 rows.  I think I'm just an idiot...lol.  I was reading the pattern and had my a-ha! moment lol.  My bf has started teasing me about my two-stripe-a-day habit so I can get it done.  Hopefully I'll be posting photos soon.

I finished my first hip in hemp over 3 weeks ago but have been offline so couldn't post. Here is a link to the work in progress and the finished skirt on model
