This is a question about the Chevron Jacket matching this skirt but the question is the same. How do you CO 89st knit in cheveron patt for 35 rows...change to knit rib over 75st with no decreases?

The chevron pattern itself automatically decreases. The last row of the pattern you knit will be 75 stitches.

The pattern says:

I tend to knit loose and usually use smaller needles. But you should choose the size, which allows you to achieve the correct gause.

How many rows of ribbing for this skirt?

This is a bit difficult. Size one or two needles to knit with sport yarn or #4 is impossible. What is up with this? What other comments have there been? I'd like to know.
