NOTES

1. Sleeves are worked flat, from widest end to narrowest end (cuff), andthen seamed.

2. Flower Motifs are made first. The Sleeves are then worked in sectionsof chain mesh. Motifs are joined to the mesh as work progresses. Two motifs arejoined in each section. Each section, except last section, is two ch-spsnarrower than the previous section.

3. Flower Motifs will be referred to by letter (Motif A, Motif B, etc.up to Motif J), even though they are all identical, for ease in followingpattern. Use markers to keep track of which Flower Motif is which.
