Notes: Coatlicue is worked in the round from the bottom up, beginning with the colourwork chart up to the underarm. The front and back are then separated and worked back and forth in rows as the armhole and neck are shaped. The shoulder straps are then joined and an edging is added to the armholes, neck and bottom edge.
The colourwork chart is worked using single-row mosaic technique. US crochet terminology used throughout.
