NOTE: This pattern is written in American English. All measurements in charts are in cm. For conversion from inches to cm - click here. There are different terms for crocheting in American and British English. If this pattern includes crochet, click for "crochet terms" here. For this pattern in British English, please click here.
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.
