Belle's Flowers

Every little girl needs a favorite sweater, why not try this one? It was designed and modeled by my favorite little girl.

Belle's Flowers

Pattern has been re-formatted and written in symbols and abbreviations. Cardi is written to have motifs joined by crocheting them together as you go. Which adds strength to the fabric, but if you wish you can crochet all the motifs then whip stitch the motifs together at the end.
