Rules and Explanation of Terms.

The following Designs are formed by a very simple combination of Tatting and Crochet, the more elaborate style of both Works being avoided, so that any Lady with a knowledge of the first rules of each Art will be able to accomplish the patterns without the least difficulty, the Stars and Diamonds being made in Tatting and afterwards worked round with loops of chain Crochet.

The numerous purposes to which the work can be applied far exceed the limits of this Book, as it admits of being made in every material. The Stars have a good effect for spotting and trimming Dresses, and, when worked in black or white Silk, are suitable for Cloak and Bonnet Trimmings. For Antimacassars and Doyleys, white and colored Cotton can be substituted for the Gold and Wool; most of the Designs are adapted for Church Needlework.

The Gold Tatting Twine can be obtained in two qualities; the least expensive should be used for Doyleys and Antimacassars, but for Church Needlework, or Collars and Sleeves, the better make is most suited.

The new Tatting Silk is a substitute for the Gold, and is made in two sizes, No. 1 being the coarser.

In these Designs the knots should be made on the right side of the work, the reverse side having the best effect.

"To Commence," in Crochet Put the needle into a stitch or pearl loop, and, leaving an end, bring the wool through in a loop.

"To Join," in Crochet Take the needle out of the loop, put it into the stitch to be joined, and bring the loop through this stitch, always joining to the centre of a loop of chain.

TATTING.

THE STARS AND DIAMONDS.

For which a Shuttle and Ring and Pin will be required. The Shuttle is to be filled with the materials as directed.

"A Pearl Loop," in Tatting Turn the thread which forms the foundation loop over the pin and continue the stitches.

"A Double Stitch," in Tatting Is formed by a single and a reverse stitch worked alternately.

OCTAGON STAR Commence a loop, work 1 double stitch, then (1 pearl and 2 double stitches alternately 7 times), 1 pearl, 1 double, draw the loop quite close, place the two ends together, knot them firmly and cut off the ends; it is better to knot the gold twice to make it very secure.

SEXAGON STAR Commence a loop, work 1 double, then (1 pearl and 2 double 5 times), 1 pearl, 1 double; draw close &c. as for the previous Star.

THE DIAMOND 1st Oval Commence a loop, work 4 double stitches, then 1 pearl, 2 double, 1 pearl, 2 double, 1 pearl, 4 double; draw quite close, and work 3 Ovals more the same, commencing them close to the last; and to fasten off firmly, pass the first end through the last oval, and then through the other three; knot the two ends together.

THE ZEPHYR SLEEVE.

DESIGN No. 1.
