Finished size = 11 inches circumference and 11.5 inches long; relaxed.

Bpdc = back post double crochet.
ch = chain
Dc = double crochet.
Fdsc = foundation single crochet.
Fpdc = front post double crochet.
Hdc = half double crochet.

Treble Puff = [essentially work a treble 3 together] *yo twice, insert hook into front loop, yo, pull through st, yo, pull through two loops, yo, pull through through two loops*; repeat from * to * twice more; yo, pull through all 4 loops on hook.
Beginning chains do not count as first stitches in the rounds, they are used to get correct height for the stitches. When joining place the slsts into the first stitch not the chain.
I did not fasten off colors on each round, I let them travel up the inside of the garment loosely until needed again.
Round 1: Fdsc 36. Join in round making sure not to twist, slst to first st. (36 sts)
Round 2 – 3: ch 2 *fpdc, bpdc*; repeat from * to * around. Join with a slst to first st. (36 sts)
Round 4: ch1, hdc 36. (36 sts)
With Bon Bon Print:
Round 5: slst into joining st, *sk 2 sts, in the front loop of next st work (Treble Puff, ch 2, Treble Puff), sk 2 sts, sl st into next st; repeat from * to * around. Join with a slst to first slst. (6 Bows, 6 slsts)
Round 6: ch 2, dc, *ch 1, work 3 hdc over the ch 2 between the Treble Puffs into the back loop remaining from round 4 (you will be hiding the chains and working into round 4), ch1, dc over the slst of round 5 into the st of round 4 (again hiding the slst with the black yarn)*; repeat from * to * around. Join with slst to first st. (36 sts)
Round 7: ch 1, hdc 36. (36 sts)
Repeat rounds 5, 6 and 7 seven more times; 8 bow segments made.
Repeat round 7 once more.
Round 30: ch 1, *sc, ch 2, sk 2*; repeat from * to * around. Join with slst to first st. (36 sts)
Round 31: ch 1, *slst into the sc, 3 sc into the chain 2 space*; repeat from * to * around. Join with invisible join, fasten off and weave in all ends. (12 slst, 36 sc)
