Crochet gauge:
8 sts of the Pattern (1 repeat = 1 flower) = 4 cm [1.5"]
10 x 10 cm [4" x 4"] = 20 sts in width x 3 flowers in height.

Pattern: See chart. 1 repeat = 8 sts. The Pattern is divisible by 8 sts + 1 st. Repeat rows 1 - 8.

«Bobble»: Pull a loop through the sts (see the chart) and make it approx. 1 cm [3/8"] long, pull another loop through the same sts and make it approx. 1 cm [3/8"] long, pull st though all loops on hook.

Front: Ch 98-106 (114-122). Work 1 row of single crochet (sc) in each ch, beginning in the 2nd st = 97-105 (113-121) sts. Crochet the Pattern - see diagram, repeat rows 1 - 8 (on 3rd row = 12-13 (14-15) flowers). When the work measures 26-29 (29-32) cm [10.25" - 11-3/8" (11-3/8" - 12-5/8")] bind off for armholes. Follow the sleeve chart and adjust length for pattern - if you start on the 1st row of pattern use Diagram A; if you start on the 5th row of pattern use Diagram B.
After the sleeve bind off 8-9 (10-11) flowers remain on the 3rd row of pattern. When the work measures 38-41 (44-47) cm [14-7/8" - 16-1/8" (17.25" - 18.5")] -- adjust length so you have completed the 1st row or 5th row -- crochet the shoulder pieces at each side of the front’s center 2-3 (2-3) flowers - see shoulder chart. If you have completed the 1st row:
Sizes S+L: use Chart C
Sizes M+XL: use Chart E
If you have completed the 5th row:
Sizes S+L: use Chart D
Sizes M+XL: use Chart F.
Tie off. The body measures approx. 46-49 (52-55) cm [18-1/8" - 19.25" (20.5" - 21-5/8")].

Back: Crochet like the front, but without the neck shaping.

Sleeves: Ch 74-74 (82-82). Work 1 row of sc beginning in the 2nd st = 73-73 (81-81) sts. Crochet the Pattern - see diagram, repeat rows 1 - 8 (on 3rd row = 9-9 (10-10) flowers). When the work measures 7-6 (5-4) cm [2.75" - 2-3/8" (2" - 1.5")] bind off for sleeve caps at each side as follows: every other row crochet over 1 less ch st loop. Finish when the work measures 20-19 (18-17) cm [7-7/8" - 7.5" (7" - 6.75")].

Assembly: Sew shoulder seams. Sew the sleeves to the body. Work 2 rows of sc around the neck.
