Stitches are picked up and worked in the round for the neck and sleeve edging. In this pattern, work all slipped stitches purlwise.
When working in Little Flowers in the round, do not break yarn at each color change. Instead, carry the unused color up the inside of the work and twist the yarn around one another at each color change to prevent holes. When working Little Flowers Flat, break CC1 and CC2 at the end of Rows 1 and 5. You may wish to weave in your ends as you go to save time.
