So... we don't even get anthropologie in Lima... I guess then I'm just a masochist going religously through their webpage when I can't even try and safe to buy anything from them... rahhh!

But still.. I do. So when I found this lovely knit skirt....

http://www.anthropologie.com/anthro/catalog/productdetail.jsp?_dyncharset=ISO-8859-1&id=720167&parentid=APP_SKIRTS_SOLID&pushId=APP_SKIRTS_SOLID&popId=APP_SKIRTS&sortProperties=&navCount=65&navAction=poppushpush&color=bla



I just said to myself... I've got to have this! I think the construction is fairly simple, but I still have to be sure before heading into such a knitting challenge (I'm known for my short attention spam with fine gauges).  How exactly do I increase a lacy pattern for the skirt to become wider at the end...?

Help! and thanks!

One very easy way to increase when you don't want to mess with the stitch pattern is to simply use larger needles as you go--so if you started with size 6 US for example, use size 7 for a while, then 8s, etc. this makes each stitch larger and increases the size of the knitting itself.

Or, you can increase in between repeats, and once you have enough stitches for another repeat of the lace pattern just plug it in. It does interrupt the pattern a bit though.

It looks really similar to the Knitty one - and that was flared by increasing without the decreases, if I remember right. It came in adult and children's sizes: http://www.knitty.com/ISSUEsummer07/PATThemp.html

It certainly is a gorgeous skirt, though!
