Row 2: Now we are working backwards along the upper side of the petals and join with the previous garland. You should have the first garland with the right side faceing up. Start to the right when it’s time to join. Keep an eye on the second garnland so they dont twist around when you join them.

Fasten all your loose ends.

Now we shall make a 2round edge around the whole piece.

With the right side faceing up, start in the lower left hand corner (in the last chsp before next petal).

Row 1: Start with a standing tr or ch 3 in the chsp of the first flower, 2 tr in same chsp, ch 1, *3 tr between the flowers, ch 1, 3 tr in ne chsp*, repeat *-* along the whole side,

Ch 3, 3 tr in first chsp in ne side, *ch 1, 3 tr in ne chsp*, repeat *-* along the whole side,

Make the last two sides in the same way

Row 2: Slst until first chsp, {*3 tr in chsp, ch 1* repeat *-* until you reach the ch3sp in the corner, (3 tr, ch 1, 3 tr) in corner chsp}, repeat {-} around. Cut the yarn.

Put your work flat with the wrong side faceing up, fold in the corners as the picture shows.

Attach a stitchmark where the corners meet and a stitchmark in the 15th chsp. Do this on both sides.

Seam or crochet together between the stitchmarks.

Fasten the ends.

Now we should work the egding around the collar and the sleeves.

To have the color on the remaining whirl evenly spread, I crochet one row at the time along the collar and sleeves.

Make one row with Whirlette and one row with Whirl.

The Collar:

Row 1: Whirlette. Start with a standing tr or ch 3, in one of the corners where you attached the corners together, tr2tog (first tr in first chsp, second tr in the second chsp), make another tr in the second corner chsp, 3 tr in every chsp until you reach the other side where you attached the corners together, (1 tr, tr2tog, 1 tr) 3 tr in every chsp, repeat around, slst in first st. Cut the yarn.

Row 2: Whirl. Start with a standing tr (or ch 3) between any of the tr groups, 2 tr in same sp*, sk 3 tr, 3 tr in next space* repeat *-* around, slst in first st. Cut the yarn.

Row 3: Whirlette. Repeat previous row.

Row 4: Whirl. Repeat row 2.

Row 5: Whirlette. Repeat row 2.
