This is the fifth puzzle you'll encounter in Professor Layton and the Azran Legacy. To access this puzzle, you must talk to Prima and Donna. In order to solve this puzzle, you must arrange the embroideries in the correct order.

[edit] Hints

Hint One
    If the patches themselves are making this puzzle difficult for you, try replacing them with numbers.

    The first patch in the sequence, the tree, would be 1, as would the next patch. The third patch in the sequence, the snowflake, would be 2. Use the Memo Function to make a note of all these numbers.

Hint Two
    If you've labelled the patches with numbers, the sequence from the starting point to the top-right corner is 112123. Heading down from there, the sequence is 12341.

    Put both of those together and you have 11212312341.

    Try cutting the sequence before the final 1. Can you see some kind of pattern?

Hint Three
    The sequence 1121231234112123 takes you to the bottom-left corner, but if you look closely, you'll see that after 1121231234, the sequence starts to repeat.

    Focus on this set of numbers and you'll be able to see how the sequence is built up. You start with one design for the first stage, then add a new design in each subsequent stage, until all the designs are used. Or in other words: 1, 12, 123, 1234.

Super Hint
    Once all four patch designs have been sewn on, the sequence starts again. Consider the patches around the outer edge. You know what the sequence is, so you know that the first blank square you come to should contain a tree, and the blank square above it should have a snowflake.

    To work out which patches should go in the two blank spaces that remain, you could also try working backwards from the goal.

[edit] When Failed

Too bad.

Once you spot the sequence, you'll see it's actually very simple.

[edit] When Completed

You've got it all sewn up!

A new patch design is added at the end of each stage of the sequence. Once all four designs have been added, the whole thing starts again from the beginning.

[edit] Solution
