Use small hook for XS, M, and XL sizes; use

tunic by connecting all the snowflakes first, then
fill in each void with a joining motif. After all the
motifs are connected, block before finishing.
Tunic opens in front. One size can accommodate
many, depending on how far you overlap
the tunic fronts.
