MATERIALS:
J. & P. COATS "BIG BALL" BEST SIX CORD MERCERIZED CROCHET, Art. A. 104, Size 30: 1 ball each of No. 1 White and No. 15-A Shaded Dk. Pinks; or CLARK'S "BIG BALL" MERCERIZED CROCHET, Art. B. 34, Size 30: 1 ball each of No. 1 White and No. 15-A Shaded Dk. Pinks.
Milwards Steel Crochet Hook No. 10.
Doily measures 12 inches in diameter.
Starting at center with White, ch 9. Join with sl st to form ring.
1st rnd: 16 sc in ring. Join to first sc.
NOTE: Hereafter do not join rnds unless otherwise stated.
2nd rnd: Ch 1, sc in joining, * ch 5, skip 1 sc, sc in next sc. Repeat from * around, ending with ch 5.
3rd rnd: * Sc in next sc, 2 sc in next sp, ch 4. Repeat from * around.
4th to 15th rnds incl: * Skip first sc, sc in each remaining sc of sc group, 2 sc in sp, ch 4. Repeat from * around.
15 sc in each sc group on last rnd.
16th rnd: * Skip 1 sc, sc in next 13 sc, ch 5, sc in sp, ch 5. Repeat from * round.
17th rnd: * Skip 1 sc, sc in next 11 sc, (ch 5, sc in next ch-5 loop) twice; ch 5. Repeat from * around. Continue in this manner, having 2 sc less in each sc group and 1 loop more between sc groups on each rnd, until 1 sc remains in each sc group. End last rnd with ch 2, dc in first sc to form last loop.
64 loops.
Now work as follows :
1st rnd: Ch 1, sc in loop just formed, * ch 2, sc in next loop, (ch 5, sc in next loop) 7 times. Repeat from * around, ending with ch 2, dc in first sc to form last loop.
2nd rnd: Ch 1, sc in loop just formed, * ch 5, skip next ch-2 sp, sc in next loop, (ch 5, sc in next loop) 6 times. Repeat from * around, ending as on first rnd.
3rd rnd: Ch 1, sc in loop, * ch 5, sc in next loop. Repeat from * around, ending as before.
56 loops.
4th rnd: Ch 1, sc in loop, * ch 3, 7 dc in next loop, ch 3, sc in next loop, (ch 5, sc in next loop) 5 times. Repeat from * around, ending as before.
5th rnd: Ch 1, sc in loop, * ch 5, skip next ch-3 sp, sc in next dc, ch 5, skip next 5 dc, sc in next dc, (ch 5, sc in next ch-5 loop) 5 times; ch 5, sc in next dc, ch 5, skip next 5 dc, sc in next dc, (ch 5, sc in next ch-5 loop) twice; ch 5, in next loop make sc, ch 5 and sc; (ch 5, sc in next loop) twice. Repeat from * around, ending as before.
60 loops.
6th rnd: Ch 1, sc in loop, * ch 7, sc in next loop. Repeat from * around. Join. Break off and fasten.
FIRST ROSETTE: With Pinks ch 10. Join with sl st to form ring.
1st rnd: 24 sc in ring. Join to first sc.
2nd rnd: Ch 1, sc in joining, (ch 5, skip 3 sc, sc in next sc) 5 times; ch 5. Join to first sc
6 loops.
3rd rnd: In each loop around make sc, hdc, 3 dc, hdc and sc. Join.
6 petals.
4th rnd: (Ch 5, sc in back loop of next sc on 2nd rnd between next 2 petals) 5 times; ch 5. Join.
6 loops.
5th rnd: In each loop around make sc, ch 2, 7 dc, ch 2 and sc. Join.
6th rnd: Sl st in net ch, sc in next ch, * ch 5, skip 3 dc, sc in next dc, ch 5, sc in first ch of next ch-2, ch 5, sc in 2nd ch of next ch-2. Repeat from * around, ending with ch 2, dc in first sc to form last loop.
7th rnd: Ch 1, sc in loop just formed, * ch 6, sc in next loop. Repeat from * around, ending with ch 3, dc in first sc. Join.
8th rnd: Ch 1, sc in loop, ch 6, sc in any loop on last rnd of doily, ch 2, sl st in 3rd ch of ch-6, ch 3, sc in next loop on rosette, (ch 6, sc in next loop on doily, ch 2, sl st in 3rd ch of ch-6, ch 3, sc in next loop on rosette) 5 times; * ch 8, sl st in 5th ch from hook. Picot made; ch 3, sc in next loop on rosette. Picot loop made. Repeat from * around. Join.
Break off and fasten.
SECOND ROSETTE: Work as for First Rosette until the 7th rnd has been completed.
8th rnd: Ch 1, sc in loop, ch 6, sl st in 2nd free picot before last joining on First Rosette, ch 2, sl st in 3rd ch of ch-6, ch 3, sc in next loop on Second Rosette, (ch 6, sl st in next picot on First Rosette, ch 2, sl st in 3rd ch of ch-6, ch 3, sc in next loop on Second Rosette) twice; (ch 6, sc in next loop on doily, ch 2, sl st in 3rd ch of ch-6, ch 3, sc in next loop on Second Rosette) 5 times; starting at * on 8th rnd of First Rosette, complete rnd.
Next 10 rosettes: Joining in same way as Second Rosette was joined to First Rosette, work 9 rosettes. Make one more rosette in same manner, joining to corresponding picots of First Rosette. Break off and fasten. Starch lightly and press.
