KNITTING.

There is not one art practised by ladies which is more deservedly popular than Knitting. It is so easy, requires so little eyesight, and is susceptible of so much ornament, that it merits the attention of every lady; and in giving instructions for acquiring it, we add, also, such admirable diagrams of the various processes, we are sure that no difficulty will be felt in executing any pattern.



The first process in knitting is known by the term CASTING ON. There are two ways of doing this: with one needle, and with two. Our first diagram represents the former process. Take the thread between the second and third fingers of the left hand, leaving an end of about a yard for every hundred stitches; pass it round the thumb of that hand, giving it a twist, so as to form a loop. Take a knitting-needle in the right hand, insert the point in the loop, and pass the thread from the ball round the needle; then bend the point of the needle through the loop, which tighten, and one stitch will be complete. Continue to make loops over the thumb, with the end of thread, and knit them with that from the ball until the proper number is cast on.

TO CAST ON WITH TWO NEEDLES (generally called the Spanish method), begin by making a loop on the end of the thread, into which slip the point of one needle, holding it in the left hand. Take the other needle in the right hand, and slip its point into the same loop, bring the thread round the point of this needle, and bend the needle towards you, so that the thread forms a loop on it. Slip that also on the left needle, without withdrawing it from the right. Put the thread round the right again, and repeat the process.



PLAIN KNITTING.—After all the stitches are cast on, hold the needle containing them in the left hand. Pass the thread round the little finger of the right hand, under the second and third, and above the point of the first. Then take the other needle in the right hand, slip the point in the first stitch, and put the thread round it; bring forward the point of the right-hand needle, so that the thread forms a loop on it. Slip the end of the left-hand needle out of the stitch, and a new stitch is knitted.

GERMAN MANNER.—The thread, instead of being held by the fingers of the right hand, is passed over and under those of the left. The process otherwise is exactly the same.

PURLING.—Begin by bringing the thread in front of the right-hand needle, which slip into a stitch pointing towards you; that is in the reverse of the usual mode (see diagram). Put the thread round the point of the needle, still bringing it towards you, bend the needle backwards to form a loop, and withdraw the stitch from the point of the left-hand needle.



When knitted and purled stitches occur in the same row, the thread must be brought forward before a purled stitch, and taken back before a knitted one.



TO MAKE A STITCH. Bring the thread in front, as if for a purled stitch, so that when you knit one the thread will pass over the needle, and will make a hole in the following row. This diagram shows the manner of making three stitches, and any other number could be made, by putting the thread round a proportionate number of times. In the engraving it will be seen that the thread is put twice entirely round the needle; and then brought forward, so that the next knitted stitch will take it over a third time. In doing the next row, knit one, purl one, knit one of these stitches; however many are made, they must be alternately knitted and purled in the next row. When the stitch allowing the made stitches is to be purled, the thread must be entirely passed round the needle, once for every stitch to be made, and brought forward also.



SLIP STITCH.—Pass a stitch from the left needle to the right, without knitting it. There are two ways of decreasing: first, by knitting two, three, or more stitches as one, marked in knitting, as k 2 t, k 3 t, etc. Secondly, in the following way: slip one stitch, knit-one, pass the slip stitch over: this decreases one stitch. To decrease two; slip one, knit two together, pass the slip stitch over.



A reverse stitch is taken off the left-hand needle, in the reverse way to knitting and purling. In both these, the right-hand needle is inserted in the middle of the stitch, and the point brought out towards you or otherwise. But to make a reverse stitch, you insert the point of the needle in the stitch at the back of the work, and bring it forward through the opening in which it generally is inserted. The thread is to be placed round it, as for a purled stitch.



To reverse two, three, or more stitches together, insert the needle in them all at once, from the last to the first.

TO TAKE UP STITCHES.—Insert the needle in the loop, pass the thread round, and knit it in the usual manner. Do not draw out any loop more than can be avoided, while knitting it.

TO KNIT TWO PIECES TOGETHER.—To do this there must be an equal number of stitches on both.



Hold the needles together in the right hand, and knit as usual, inserting the left-hand needle in a loop of each at the same time, and treating the two as one.



TO FORM A ROUND:—This diagram represents the French manner of performing this process by casting the whole number of stitches on one needle, and then distributing them on three, or perhaps four. But the English mode is to divide the number of stitches, and cast so many on each needle, not withdrawing the last stitch of each needle from the point of the next needle. When all are cast on, the round is made by knitting the two first stitches on to the last needle. Four needles are employed for stockings, five for doyleys and other round articles.

To cast off:—knit two stitches, insert the point of the left hand needle in the first stitch, and draw it on the other. Knit another stitch, and treat these two in the same way.

INFANT'S SHOE, IN KNITTING.

MATERIALS.—1 ounce of white Berlin wool. 1 skein of white, and 1 of embroidery wool, 4 knitting needles, No. 21, and 2, No. 19.

With the fine needles cast 30 stitches on one, and 20 on each of two others. Join into a round, and purl one round.



1st pattern round: X slip 2, taking them off the needle in the same way as if you were going to purl them, but with the wool at the back; knit 3. X repeat all round.

2nd, 3rd, and 4th rounds: the same.

5th and 6th: purl every stitch.

7th to 10th inclusive: X knit 3, slip 2 as before, X repeat all round, 11th and 12th purled.

13th to 16th inclusive: X knit 2, slip 2 as before, knit 1, X repeat all round.

17th and 18th purled. Repeat these 18 rounds again.

Then do the same twice more; but, instead of knitting three stitches, always decrease by knitting two together (once) on the needle that has the thirty stitches in every row which is not plainly purled, until only twelve stitches are left on it.

When 72 rounds are done, the boot will be sufficiently long. Purl two rounds, divide the whole number of stitches on two needles, taking care that the 12 stitches shall be exactly in the centre of one; then join up the toe by casting off, knitting one stitch from each needle together.

Now take up the twenty centre stitches of the 70 originally cast on—that is, the twenty middle ones of the thirty that were on one needle, and which were decreased to twelve. Knit them backwards and forwards 40 rows. With another needle take up on each edge of this plain knitting 20 more stitches, so that there are 60 altogether.

These stitches must be knitted backwards and forwards thus:—

1st row: X knit 3, slip 2 as before, X repeat with the last stitch, take up one of the 70 next to the 20.

2nd: Slip 2, but as if you were going to knit plain, purl 3. Repeat; join on to the 70 at the other end.

3rd: Like first.

4th: Like 2nd.

5th: Purled; join at the end.

6th: Knitted; join at the end.

7th: X knit 2, slip 2, knit 1, X join at the end.

8th: X purl 1, slip 2, knit 2, X join as before.

9th: Like 7th.

10th: Like 8th.

11th: Purled.

12th: Knitted.

13th: X knit 1, slip 2, knit 2, X join at the end.

14th: X purl 2, slip 2, knit 1, X join.

15th: Like 13th.

16th: Like 14th.

17th: Purled, with join at the end.

18th: Knitted. The same. Repeat these 18 rows.

Take up the remaining stitches of the 70, and form the whole into a round for the ankle. Purl four rounds.

5th round: X knit 3, make 1, knit 2 together, X all round. Purl 6 more rounds, and cast off.

FOR THE TASSELS.—Plait some wool into a cord, and fasten at each end a tassel of white and pink wool combed out.

FOR THE RUCHE.—Cast on five stitches with the coarser needles, and the white embroidery wool. Knit and purl the rows alternately, winding the wool six times round two fingers of the left hand at every stitch, and taking up those threads with the stitches. Do about ten rows so; then for ten more wind the wool only for the first and last stitches, and the pink for the others of each row. Do enough to go twice round the top of each boot. Cut the loops, and comb out the wool. Sew it round the top of the boot.

THE TULIP WREATH FLOWER-VASE MAT.

MATERIALS.—12 shades of amber, 7 shades of lilac, 4 shades of green. 4 Skeins of each colour. 5 Steel Needles, No. 14. Cardboard foundation, covered with white or amber cambric, 8 inches in diameter.

FOR THE MAT.—Knit 4 rounds of each shade of amber, beginning with the lightest. Cast on 2 stitches on each of 4 needles; bring the wool forward, knit half the stitches on the first needle; t. f. and k. [Footnote: K. means knit; k. 2+ knit two together; p. purl; t. f. thread forward.] the other half; repeat the same on each of the other 3 needles; k. the next round plain; repeat these two rounds until there are 48 stitches on each needle; then cast off, and sew this on the covered cardboard foundation.

FOR THE TULIPS.—5 tulips to be knitted in 7 shades of amber, and 5 in 7 shades of lilac; 4 rounds to be knitted of each shade; 4 needles. Cast on 2 stitches on each of 3 needles; t.f. at the commencement of each needle; k. 1 plain round; purl a round, increasing at commencement of each needle. Repeat these two rounds till there are 22 stitches on each of the three needles; then first k. 3, k. 2+, k. 1, k. 2+, k. 3; turn the work back, and purl the stitches.



3rd: K. 2, k. 2+, k. 1, k. 2+, k. 2.

4th: Turn back and purl.

5th: K. 2, k. 2+, k. 1, k. 2+, k 2.

6th: Turn back and purl.

7th: K. 1, k. 3+, k. 1.

8th: Purl.

9th: K. 3+.

20 tulips will be required.

THE LEAVES (10 of which will be necessary).—4 shades of green, 12 rows of each; 2 needles.

Cast on 3 stitches; k. plain, till before the centre stitch; t.f. and k. the centre stitch; t.f., k. the remainder plain; p. the next row; repeat these 2 rows, till there are 12 open stitches up the vein of the leaf; then k. 1, k. 2+, k. plain, till 2 from the centre stitch; then k. 2+, t.f., k. 1, t.f., k. 2+, k. plain, till 3 from the end; then k. 2+, k. 1; p. the next row; repeat till there are 8 more open stitches, that is, 20 from the beginning; then k. 2+ at the beginning and end of every other row, till the last ends in a point. Now sew the leaves round the mat by the part where the stem should be; then sew the tulips on as in engraving, sewing the leaf about 6 rows from the point on the stem of the tulip.

CROCHET.

* * * * *



The stitches used in crochet are, chain, slip, single, double, treble, and long treble crochet.

TO MAKE A CHAIN, form a loop on the thread, insert the hook in it, and draw the thread in another loop through this. Continue this to form a succession of stitches.

SLIP-STITCH is made by drawing a thread at once through any given stitch and the loop which is on the needle.

SINGLE CROCHET (written s.c.)—Having a loop on the needle, insert the hook in a stitch, and draw the thread through in a loop. You then have two on the hook; draw the thread through both at once.

DOUBLE CROCHET (d.c.)—Twist the thread round the hook before inserting it in the stitch, through which you draw the thread in a loop. Three loops being then on the needle, draw the thread through two, and then through the one just formed and the remaining one.

TREBLE CROCHET (t.c.) and LONG TREBLE (long t.c.) are worked in the same manner; in the former the thread is put twice, in the latter three times, round the hook, before inserting it into the stitch.

TO JOIN LEAVES.—When one part of a leaf, flower, etc., is to be joined to another, drop the loop from your hook, which insert in the place to be joined; draw the loop through and continue working.

TO PASS FROM ONE ROUND TO ANOTHER WITHOUT BREAKING THE THREAD.—In working mats and many similar articles this is very desirable. Having finished one round, see whether a s.c., d.c., or t.c. stitch begins the next; for s.c. make one chain, for d.c. three, for t.c. four; slip the needle out, and twist the chain, then continue working. This twisted chain will have all the appearance of a d.c. or t.c. stitch. Should the round not begin exactly in the same place, slip-stitch to the part where it commences, as it will seldom be more than a few stitches in advance.

SQUARE CROCHET is a term often used, and generally understood, as the engraved patterns are mostly in it. Lest, however, any of our readers should not be familiar with the name, we will explain it. The squares are either open or close. An open square consists of one d.c., two ch.—missing two on the line beneath, before making the next stitch. A close square has three successive d.c. Thus, any given number of close squares, followed by an open, will have so many times three d.c., and one over; and any foundation made for a pattern to be worked in square crochet will have a number of chains divisible by three, leaving one over.

TO CONTRACT AN EDGE.—In forming leaves and many other things, this is very useful. It can be done in d.c., t.c., or long t.c. Having twisted the thread round the needle as often as the stitch may require, insert it in the work, and half-do a stitch. Instead of completing it, again twist the thread round, until the same number of loops are on, and work a stitch completely. Thus, for two stitches taken in the work, there is only one head. This being successively repeated materially contracts an edge.

TO JOIN ON A THREAD.—Avoid joins in open work as much as possible. In close work, whether d.c. or s.c., they will not be perceived. Finish the stitch by drawing the new thread through, allowing a couple of inches for both ends, which you hold in.

TO WORK WITH SEVERAL COLOURS.—Hold the threads not in use along the edge of the work, and work them in. When the colour is to be changed, begin the stitch with the old colour, and complete it with the new, which continue to work with, holding the other in. If only one stitch of a colour is to be used, you finish one stitch, and begin the next with it; then change. Colours are seldom intermixed, except in solid work, such as the ends of purses, mats worked over cord, and the like.

TO WORK OVER CORD.—Hold it in the left hand, with the work, and work round it, as you would if it were merely an end of thread. The stitches must, however, be sufficiently close to cover it entirely.

TO WORK WITH BEADS.—Beads must be first threaded on the silk, or other material, and then dropped, according to the pattern, on what is usually thought the wrong side of the work. This side presents a more even appearance than the other. It follows that when bead purses are worked from an engraving, they are worked the reverse of the usual way—namely, from right to left.

THE MARKS USED IN CROCHET RECEIPTS.—These are very simple when understood. They are printers' marks—asterisks, crosses, daggers, and sometimes one or two others. They are used to mark repetitions, and save space. The principal thing to observe is, that in every row or round, if one of any kind is used, a second, similar one, is sure to be found; and that the repetition occurs between the two, however far distant apart. Suppose a row of a pattern to be written thus:—X 2 d.c., 4 ch., miss 4, * 5 d.c., 1 ch., miss 1, * three times, 5 d.c., X, * twice; it would, at full length, be—2 d.c., 4 ch., miss 4, 5 d.c., 1 ch., miss 1, 5 d.c., 1 ch., miss 1, 5 d.c., 1 ch., miss 1, 5 d.c., 2 d.c., 4 ch., miss 4, 5 d.c., 1 ch., miss 1, 5 d.c., 1 ch., miss 1, 5 d.c., 1 ch., miss 1, 5 d.c. It will be seen that one repetition often occurs within another, as in the stitches between the asterisks. Another mode of shortening receipts can be used only where a row has a centre both sides of which correspond; the latter being the same as the former, worked backwards. Then the letters b, a, are used, to mark that in the latter part of the row you reverse the instructions. b, 7 d.c., 3 ch., miss 2, 1 d.c., 2 ch., miss 1, a, 1 d.c. (the centre stitch), would be, 7 d.c., 3 ch., miss 2, 1 d.c., 2 ch., miss 1, 1 d.c., miss 1, 2 ch., 1 d.c., miss 2, 3 ch., 7 d.c. These letters and the printers' marks are equally used in knitting. It is easy to see how much space is gained by the use of these abbreviations, a knowledge of which is easily acquired. Probably many of our friends are already familiar with the substance of this preliminary lesson; but as daily experience convinces us that many are still ignorant of the principles of crochet, we trust the good-nature of the adepts will lead them to excuse this occupation of a page, in consideration of the benefit it will be to their less fortunate friends.

One word on the implement termed a crochet-hook. It should not be sharp or pointed, either in the point or barb, but smooth, and quite free from any angularity that can catch the silk. Cheap and common crochet-hooks are in the end the dearest, as they break cotton, ravel silk, wear out the patience, and prick the finger. They should be of the best steel, highly polished, and firmly fixed in ivory handles. Those we use have been made at our recommendation, and have the size engraved on every handle. This saves the tiresome and uncertain reference to a gauge. These hooks are termed "tapered, indented" crochet-hooks.

ANTI-MACASSAR.

MATERIALS.—Four reels of Brooks' Great Exhibition Prize Goat's-head Crochet Cotton, No. 8, 1 ditto, No. 4, 4 ounces of turquoise blue beads.

The anti-macassar of which we give a representation in the engraving is intended to fit the top of a library chair. One half only is seen. A similar piece of crochet is to be made and sewed to it, the two forming a sort of bag, which is slipped over the back of the chair. It is a great improvement on the old-fashioned anti-macassar, as it is not liable to be displaced. A border is added to the front of it, the pattern of which is made in beads (in the style of the bassinet quilt, page 24). This, from its weight, serves to keep the anti-macassar from shifting, and is finished with a handsome fringe. Spotted muslin, or any similar material, may be used for the back of the anti-macassar, instead of crochet, for those who would prefer saving themselves the trouble of working the second piece.



The upper part may be worked from the engraving, being done in square crochet, for which we have already given full directions. Make a chain of 277 stitches. Do one row of double crochet; then work from the engraving, beginning with that row which is in open square crochet, except the first and last squares, which are close. When you come to the diminished part, begin the row thus:—Miss 1, slip on the 2nd, single crochet on the 3rd, double crochet on the 4th. Reverse the process at the end of the row. This diminishes the row one square at each end. Some few rows narrow the squares at each end. In that case miss 4 at the beginning and end, instead of one. Work in the ends as you go on. This part of the anti-macassar uses three reels of cotton. Thread the blue beads on the 4th, No. 8 reel, and work the borders.

Begin by a row of single crochet on the wrong side, on the foundation chain. All the subsequent rows are done on the same side. Begin every row with two plain stitches, beside those in the pattern.

1st pattern row: X 2 plain, 2 beads, 5 plain, 2 beads, 14 plain X repeat to the end in this and every future row.

ANTI-MACASSAR.

MATERIALS.—Brooks' Great Exhibition Prize Goat's-head Crochet Cotton, No. 24.

This anti-macassar must be begun on the line of d.c., forming one end. Make a chain of the required number of stitches, including the borders, and work the whole anti-macassar, except the border which is at the one end, below the foundation chain, which must be done last of all. Or the centre can be done entirely first, and the border worked all round afterwards, increasing at the corners. We, however, recommend the former method.

This pattern is extremely well adapted for darning on square netting. In that case the netting may be done in Brooks' Knitting Cord, No. 60, and the darning in Embroidery Cotton, No. 70. The centre only can be done thus—a netted border must trim it.



* * * * *



NETTED ANTI-MACASSAR.



MATERIALS.—Brooks' Great Exhibition Prize Goat's-head Knitting Cord, No. 40, and Embroidering Goat's-head Cotton, No. 70; mesh, one-third of an inch wide.

This anti-macassar is done in the fashionable style of netting, with a pattern darned on it after it is worked. Make a foundation, on which work sixty-seven stitches. Repeat these, backwards and forwards, until a square is done, of as many holes up the sides as along the width. Remove the foundation, and add either a crochet-bead border all round, or a netted one. The bead border makes the shape more solid; the netted one is certainly lighter, and the following is very pretty:—

With a mesh three times the size of that used for the square do one entire round, with three stitches in one at the corners.

2nd round: With the small mesh. Miss the first stitch, net the second, then the missed one, repeat all round.

3rd: X Net a stitch of each of seven stitches, miss one stitch of the last round, X repeat all round.

Observe, before doing this round, count the number of stitches; if they cannot be divided by eight, add at the corners as many as may be required. Supposing there are so many eights and five over, then three more will be wanted, and one must be added (by doing two in one) in each of the three corners.

4th: X 6 over seven, miss the long stitch, X repeat.

5th: X 5 over six, missing as before, X repeat.

6th: X 4 over five, as before, X repeat.

7th: X 3 over four, as before, X repeat.

8th: X 2 over three, as before, X repeat.

Before darning netting, wash it perfectly clean, stiffen it by dipping it into a little gum-water, and pin it out on a pillow, in the proper form, to dry. Then darn it with embroidery cotton, every square of the pattern being closely filled up.

FLORAL ANTI-MACASSAR.

IN SQUARE NETTING AND DARNED.



MATERIALS.—Brooks' Goat's-head Netting and Knitting Cotton, No. 36. Brooks' Embroidering Goat's-head Cotton, No. 40. Rather a fine Embroidering Needle. Steel Mesh, No. 12 Steel Netting Needle.

Work the same number of squares, as in the engraving, by commencing on one stitch, and increasing one at the end of every row till you get sufficient length of one side; and then decrease one at the end of every row by taking two loops into one. Then darn according to the engraving.

Make sufficient number of tassels to go round. Wind the cotton over a card three inches wide, cut one end, and draw through the loop of netting, and make four more tassels larger; over a card six inches wide for the corners. Six squares measure one inch.

IN SQUARE NETTING; THE PATTERN DIAMOND.



MATERIALS:—Brooks' Goat's-head Netting Cotton, Nos. 30 and 36; Embroidering, No. 40; Steel Mesh, No. 12, and Steel Netting Needle. For the upper side of the cushion use No. 36 Cotton, and commence with one stitch, and make one at the end of every row until you have 83 loops on your mesh; then decrease one at the end of every row until you have only one left; then fasten off; then darn it with Embroidering Cotton, No. 40, according to the engraving, always taking care that there are the same number of threads in every square, and that the threads all run the same way, making as few breaks in the cotton as possible; in fastening off, or beginning again, always let it be on the under-side, that the ends may not be seen. Then for the under-side of the cushion, make another piece exactly similar to the other one in size, but with a thicker cotton, No. 30. The two pieces must then be joined together, and placed upon a cushion stuffed with wool and covered with a dark purple, crimson, or green velvet; the whole afterwards finished with a thick twisted cord in two colours, with massive tassels at the corners to match.

Finish this round, like all the preceding, since the direction, with a slip stitch on the first stitch of the round.

12th: D.c.

EDGING.—One pattern takes up the space of a pattern of the band, consequently there are 26 in the round. Each is finished before proceeding to the next. The band and edging may be done entirely without breaking off the thread, therefore continue for the latter, after closing the former. 12 s.c., 12 ch., close it into a round, under which work 23 s.c.; 9 s.c. on the edge of the band; turn the work on the wrong side,—7 ch., miss 5 of the 23 on the round, s.c. under the 6th, * 5 ch, miss 3, s.c. under 4th, * 3 times; 7 ch., s.c. under 4th of the 12 s.c. (leaving a space of 8 to the loop). Turn on the right side and work under each loop of 7, 1 s.c., 2 d.c. 4 t.c., 2 d.c., 2 s.c., and under the other loops, 2 s.c., 4 d.c., 2 s.c.: 2 s.c. more on the band complete one pattern. Fasten to the round with a row of s.c., taking a stitch of each.

NOTE.—It is to be remembered that each round begins with a d.c. of 3 ch., and 3 ch., after which the pattern between the * * is done 7 times throughout, and the eighth time the last d.c. and 3 ch. are omitted, being worked at the commencement of the round. To write this at the end of every round would make the directions tediously long, and the worker can find no difficulty if observing this note.

CHAIR CUSHION.

MATERIALS.—Brooks' Great Exhibition Prize Goat's-head Knitting Cord, No. 40, or 60, with a suitable hook.

This is a new and extremely pretty kind of cushion, for the back of a chair, which renders an ordinary seat almost as commodious as a professedly easy chair.

A small cushion is made, just the length of the back of the chair, and narrow in the proportion seen in the engraving, which is covered either with Berlin-wool work, or (as we have designed) with crochet. It is suspended from the top of the chair by ribbons or cords; and the lower edge is finished with either fringe or tassels. We have given two sizes of cotton as suitable for this purpose, as the dimensions must depend on those of the chair. The pattern requires a foundation chain of 274 stitches, and if No. 40 cord is used, and an ordinary hook suitable for it, the length will be as nearly as possible, half a yard. Should the chair not be so wide, the same number of stitches, with a finer cord, will decrease the cushion cover; if required larger, for any purpose whatever, by using a coarser material the same design will be proportionably increased.

And here we may be allowed to suggest a purpose to which this pattern is peculiarly applicable, and which will be found an article extremely beneficial to "the neat-handed Phillis."



In these days of homoeopathy, when the love of cold water is on the increase (as indeed it is high time it was), and while the means for thorough ablution are not perhaps as yet so extensively patronised as they deserve to be, we all know the destruction occasioned to that part of the paper which is immediately above the washhand-stand. Now we would propose a Splash Cloth, in crochet, of this or any similar design, to be worked in very coarse cotton, such as Brooks' Great Exhibition Prize Goat's-head Knitting Cord, No. 16, lined with glazed calico to match the hangings, and suspended above the washhand-stand. It will be a pretty decoration, perfectly preventing the injury usually occurring to the walls, readily washed, and always new.

As fine cotton decreases the dimensions of a piece of work, so thicker cotton, with a hook proportionately large, increases its size. The number of the cotton chosen should depend on the size of the stand. No. 40, it will be remembered, will work it about half a yard long.

When used to cover a cushion, the cushion itself should be of a colour to match with the hangings, and the crochet work is to be tacked lightly over it at each edge.

TOILET COVER IN SQUARE CROCHET.

MATERIALS.—Brooks' Great Exhibition Prize Goat's-head Crochet Cotton, No. 36, with a fine hook.

The pattern for this toilet cover being so elaborate, it must be worked in cotton not coarser than that we have indicated, if intended for an ordinary toilet cover. Worked in a coarser material, No. 8 or 12, of Brooks' Great Exhibition Prize Goat's-head Crochet Cotton, it would make a beautiful quilt for a small bed; and in some of the coarser sizes of the knitting cord, a large counterpane might be worked, and from the clear appearance this material presents, would look very rich and handsome.

Like all square crochet, this design must be worked from the engraving. The number of foundation chain for working it is 529, reckoning the length, or 346 for the width, if that mode of working be preferred as less cumbersome. It will not, however, answer so well for a toilet cover, as the stitches would go the wrong way. For a counterpane, on the contrary, it would be preferable.



For the border of a toilet cover, we should recommend one of the patterns in bead work, found in other parts of this volume. For the edge of a counterpane, nothing can be handsomer than the border and fringe of the bassinet quilt.

It should be worked with the same cotton as the centre, and the fringe a degree coarser.

Crochet counterpanes should be laid over one of the American patent quilted coverlets, which have recently been sold in London, and for invalids, especially, are so extremely comfortable.

* * * * *



TIDY IN SQUARE CROCHET.

MATERIALS.—Brooks' Great Exhibition Prize Goat's-head Crochet Cotton, No. 14: Walker's Penelope Crochet-hook, No. 21/2.



Make a chain of 289 stitches, which will form ninety-nine squares; with this cotton and hook it will measure twenty-five inches; the pattern must be worked from the engraving, and may be increased in size by using a coarser cotton and thicker hook.

* * * * *



ARABESQUE TOILET-COVER IN SQUARE CROCHET.



This pattern should be worked in Brooks' Great Exhibition Prize Goat's-head Crochet Cotton, exactly to the size of the top of the table, in rather thick cotton, to make it look massive, and to retain its form; the edging must be worked in blue beads in crochet to the pattern, and a number of beads given exactly to go round the table and to hang down, and finished with a tassel at each corner.

Repeat these 12 rows (that is, from the 22nd to the 33rd, inclusive of both), six times more, doing two patterns (that is, 24 rounds) of one shade, and then changing to the next lightest. After the 7th pattern, continue as follows, in order to decrease and form the neck for the lamp.

1st decreasing round: * knit 1, make 1, knit 2 together, make 1, knit 3 together, make 1, knit 2 together, knit 1, slip 1, knit 1, pass the slip stitch over, make 1, knit 1, * 8 times.

The edges of the Vandykes are trimmed with tatting, of which five graduated ones surround each. Fill the netting-needle with the darkest shade of wool, and make for every point at the base of the corner the following seven loops:—

1st: 9 double stitches; draw it up to a half-circle.

2nd: 11 double; the same.

3rd: 13 double; the same.

4th: 15 double; draw it up tightly.

5th: Like 3rd.

6th: Like 2nd.

7th: Like 1st.

This cover is intended to protect the lamp from the dust, which greatly injures the bronzing of the Hadrot lamp.
