Crochet hooks: F/5 (3.75 mm), G/6 (4.25 mm) H/8 (5 mm), I/9 (5.5 mm), J/10 (6 mm), and K/10 1/2 (6.5 mm) Yarn needle

Gauge: Flower Motif = 2-1/2-inch diameter using F/5 (3.75 mm) hook; 8 pattern repeats = 4-1/4 inches; 12 rows = 3-3/4 inches over Mesh Pattern (worked in rows) using G/6 (4.25 mm). Check your gauge. Use any size hook to obtain gauge given.
Row 1 Sc in 2nd ch from hook, ch 2, sc in next ch, *sc in next ch, ch 2, sc in next ch; rep from * across -- 8 (sc, ch 2, sc) pattern repeats.
Rows 2-12 Beg with Row 1, work in Mesh Pattern (worked in rows). Resulting gauge swatch should measure approximately 4-1/4x3-3/4 inches. If necessary, adjust hook size to obtain correct gauge.
- The top is worked from the top down. Flower Motifs are worked and joined to form a circle. The Front and Back Bodice are worked separately along the sides of the flower circle. The Front and Back Bodice are then joined (completing the armholes) and the Body worked down to the hem.
- The gentle flaring of the Body to the hem is created by using increasingly larger crochet hooks.
