Vol. 12 Num. 12

This versatile piece is suited for chair sets, tablecloths, runners, and any number of things; it is elegant also for a tray cloth. We have used nuber 30 crochet thread and a size 12 hook. It takes about 13 yards of thread for one medallion.

  • Motif Center: Ch 10, sl st to first ch to form a ring.
  • RND 1: Ch 3, 17 dc in ring. Join with sl st to top of ch 3.
  • RND 2: Ch 10, sc in fourth ch from hook to form a p (picot). *Tr in next dc. Ch 6, sc in tr (to from a p). Repeat from * until 18 trs and 18 ps are made, join with a sl st to first tr.

    To Join Motifs: Lay motifs together, one point of one to one poit of an adjacent motif. Join by the middle p of second motif as it is made. Make a row of them the desired length; then make a second row, join them together as the first but also join them to the first by crocheting 2 points of the latter to 2 points of the former as illustrated. This leaves 2 inside ps free on each of the 4 points.
