Before sewing together, tug on the vertical ridges formed by the post
stitches, from top to bottom of piece, then stretch gently from side to side, so
that the spaces between the trebles hang uniformly. If sewing together with

leaving center 9 hdc of Back for neck. Sew in Sleeves. Sew Sleeve and side
seams.

neckline; turn.

Rows 3-9 Repeat Row 2, adding 2 (3) more sts of neckline from each front
into collar every row.

Edging At end of Row 9, do not turn; continue down front edge, working 3
dc in the side of tr rows of front, then 5 dc into side of each row down to
corner square, 6 dc in corner square; continue along bottom edge, working 2 dc
in each ch-space to next corner square; work corner square and other front edge
as for first one; in side of square holding edge of collar work 3 dc in ch-space,
dc in each hdc of collar around to first dc at other end of collar; join with
slip st in top of first dc. Fasten off.
