Gauge: Small blossom: approx. 6 cm in diameter. Large blossom: approx. 9 cm in diameter.
Blossom placement: See the diagrams for Model No. 19 on page 36 of Drops No. 78. There is a diagram for each size (Str. S/M = Size S/M; Str. L/XL = Size L/XL). The shoulder straps (skulderstropp/axelband) are attached differently for each size.
Small blossom: Ch 6 and join into a ring with a sl st.
Round 1: 12 sc in ring, finish with 1 sl st in 1st sc.
Round 2: * ch 5, skip over 1 sc, 1 sc in the next st *, repeat from * - * a total of 5 times, ch 5, skip over 1 sc, 1 sl st in 1st ch at start of row = 6 ch-loops.
Round 3: * 2 sc, 3 dc, 2 sc in the next ch-loop *, repeat from * - * a total of 6 times and finish with 1 sl st in 1st sc at start of row.
Cut yarn and fasten off, leaving a tail. The yarn will be used to sew the blossoms together later.
Rounds 1-3: Crochet the same as small blossom.
Round 4: * ch 5, 1 sc in 2nd dc (= center of bow), ch 5, skip over 1 dc and 1 sc, then 1 sc between the two following sc * repeat from * - * a total of 6 times.
Round 5: * 5 sc in ch-loop, 1 picot (= ch 3, 1 sc in 1st ch), 5 sc in the next ch-loop *, repeat from * - * a total of 6 times and finish with 1 sl st in 1st sc at start of row. Cut yarn and fasten off, leaving a tail.

Assembly - front: Place blossoms according to diagrams. Sew as shown in close-up diagram, using tails to sew blossoms together.
Back: Crochet and sew together the same as front. For size L/XL you will need to crochet 1 fewer blossom for each shoulder, that is, crochet 3 small blossoms in natural instead of 5.
Then join shoulders and side in the same way as you joined the blossoms for Body.
If you wish to change the size of the armhole, adjust with the number of small blossoms on the shoulder strap.
