    I only see where is says 3 strips. Do you need more and what about the sleeves? When I download this is all I get.

  2. Elizabeth Harrison says:

    Is a strip made up of four flower patterns or three and is it 8 strips to get your 40 inches Also could not find how you do the sleeve. I love the pattern trying it out on some scrap yarn. If I am able to put it together would like to purchase your yarn as I’d like to make this for my daughters.
