Measurements After Blocking Bust—36½ inches. Length of underarm seam—5 inches.

GAUGE: 3 loops make 1 inch; 5 rows make 1 inch.

Back … Starting at point at lower edge of Back, ch 28. 1st row: S c in 3rd st from hook (1 p made), ch 2, s c in 10th ch from p, * ch 5, ch-3 p, ch 2, skip 4 ch, s c in next ch. Repeat from * 2 more times (4 loops). Ch 33, turn. 2nd row: P, ch 2, s c in 10th ch from p, * ch 5, p, ch 2, skip 4 ch, s c in next ch. Repeat from * across chain (5 loops increased); ** ch 5, p, ch 2, s c under ch-5 of next loop. Repeat from ** across. Ch 33, turn. Repeat the last row until there are 24 loops in the row. Ch 38, turn. Work across chain (6 loops increased) and across row. Ch 38, turn. Repeat this last row until there are 48 loops in the row. Ch 7, p, ch 2, turn. Next row: * S c under ch-5 of next loop, ch 5, p, ch 2. Repeat from * across. Ch 7, p, ch 2, turn. Repeat this last row, increasing 1 loop at both ends of every 7th row 3 times in all—to inc., make 2 loops in 1 loop, by inserting hook in p for 1st loop, and under ch-5 for 2nd loop. Then work without increasing until underarm measures 5 inches. Do not make a chain to turn after the last row.

TO SHAPE ARMHOLES: 1st row: Sl st to center of 1st loop, ch 3, s c in next loop, ch 5, p, ch 2; continue in pattern to within last 2 loops, d c in next loop, turn (2 loops decreased at both ends). 2nd row: Sl st to center of 1st loop, ch 5, p, ch 2 and continue across to within last loop, d c in last loop; turn. Repeat the last row until 40 loops remain. Work straight until piece measures 3½ inches from 1st row of armhole shaping. Then inc. 1 loop at both ends of every other row until there are 50 loops in the row. Work 4 rows without increasing. To shape shoulders, dec. 2 loops (as for armhole) at both ends of each row until 26 loops remain; then dec. 1 loop at both ends of each row until 18 loops remain. Fasten off.

Right Front … Starting at bottom, ch 138 to measure about 9½ inches. Work as for Back (26 loops), increasing 1 loop at one side only (underarm) every 2 inches twice. Work straight until underarm measures 5 inches.

TO SHAPE ARMHOLE: Starting at underarm, dec. 2 loops and continue in pattern across. Then dec. 1 loop at armhole edge every other row 4 times in all; at the same time, dec. 1 loop at opposite edge one row every inch 3 times in all (19 loops). Work straight until piece measures 3½ inches from 1st row of armhole shaping. Then inc. 1 loop at armhole edge on next row and every other row thereafter 6 times in all; at the same time, continue to dec. 1 loop at opposite edge on one row every inch 5 more times (20 loops). To shape shoulder dec. 2 loops at armhole edge each row until 2 loops remain. Fasten off.

Left Front … Work to correspond with Right Front. Sew up underarm and shoulder seams. Make sufficient Edging No. 8271 to go all around edges, including armholes, and sew on with neat over-and-over stitches. Make 6 Flowers No. 8422-A and 6 Scrolls No. 8422-B, and sew on as in illustration.
