To Make Up
The medallions are joined by sewing the points of tba scallops together, leav- ing four scallops to be joined by the smaller medallions. Two scallops are
joined at the sides of the medallions , and one at the top and bottom.
1st Row: Starting at the lower hack, place five medallions and'sew two scal- lops of each together at the sides.
2nd Row; Place five medallions in position and join to those in 1st row with 1 point meeting, leaving i scal- lops where the smaller medallions are
3rd Row: Se-'en medallions, adding one extra at each end to form the sleeve; join as in previous row.
4th Row: Three medallions each end, leaving out the centre back one to
form, the neck. .
5th Row: Three medallions each side
6th Row: Two medallions each side. 7th Row: Two medallions each side. , Crochet a chain at the underarm and arouud the neck and fronts, working slipstitch over the treble in the medal- lions. This gives a firm line to which to sew the lining.

Stitch up underarm seams, leaving sides of medallions at each end unsown. Catch medallions to lining across shoulders to hold in position.
