Pattern Notes

Follow the schematic for joining the motifs and working the body.

Pattern

Right Body

Join 16 motifs in a row running from the front over the shoulder to the back (see diagram).

Row 1: With RS facing join yarn in the ch-3 sp between the 3dc-clusters at the corner of the first motif, ch 3 (count as dc), *dc in same sp, dc in cluster, 3 dc in next ch-3 sp, [dc in next dc, dc in next ch-1 sp] twice, dc in next dc, 3 dc in next ch-3 sp, [dc in next dc, dc in next ch-1 sp] twice, dc in next dc, 3 dc in next ch-3 sp, dc in next cluster, dc in next ch-3 sp, dc in join; rep from * 15 times, ending with last dc in same ch-3 sp between 3dc-clusters at the corner of the last motif, turn. (385 dc)

Rows 2-15 (18, 21, 24, 27): Ch 3 (counts as dc), dc across. Fasten off at end of last row.

Left Body

Join 16 motifs in a row running from the back over the shoulder to the front with the first 7 motifs also joined to the motifs of the Right Body (see diagram).

Complete as for Right Body.

Sleeve (make 2)

Join 6 motifs in a row to form sleeve cuff.

Set-up Row: With RS facing join yarn in the ch-3 sp between the 3dc-clusters at the corner of the first motif, ch 3 (count as first dc), *dc in same sp, dc in cluster, 3 dc in next ch-3 sp, [dc in next dc, dc in next ch-1 sp] twice, dc in next dc, 3 dc in next ch-3 sp, [dc in next dc, dc in next ch-1 sp] twice, dc in next dc, 3 dc in next ch-3 sp, dc in next cluster, dc in next ch-3 sp, dc in join; rep from * 5 times, ending with last dc in same ch-3 sp between 3dc-clusters at the corner of the last motif, turn. (145 dc)

Row 1 (Inc): Ch 3 (count as first dc), dc in same, dc across to beg ch 3, 2 dc in top of beg ch 3, turn. (2 sts increased)

Rows 2-4: Ch 3, dc across, turn.

Rows 5-20: Rep last 4 rows 4 times. (155 dc)

Fasten off.

Finishing

Block pieces to measurements.

Sew sleeves in place. Sew the sleeve and side seams.

Starting at the center back neck, work 1 rnd of sc around the front and bottom edge.

Work 1 rnd of sc around the sleeve cuff edge.

Weave in all ends.
