The small cables can be worked with or without a cable needle. Instructions for both methods are given. The ‘stem and leaves’ pattern and the ‘flowers’ are charted and fully written.
The 3rd color in the flowers’ hearts is added using duplicate stitch. Tips on colorwork and duplicate stitch included.
