Section IV: A Novel Wheel

In working the charming wheel shown in Illustration No. 4 ( to the right) two threads are called for. With one thread begin in the centre, make 7p with 2ds between, draw up, slip the thread through the nearest p, and with both threads make 9ds; with one thread make 6ds, 1p, 2ds, 1p, 2ds, 1p, 4ds; draw up close as possible; make 4ds; join in last p of the first loop, 2ds, 1p, 2ds, 1p, 2ds, 1p, 2ds, 1p, 4ds; draw up close; make 4ds; join in last p of second loop, 2ds, 1p, 2ds, 1p, 6ds; draw up; with both threads make 9ds; catch into next p

of centre circle 9ds; then with one thread make 6ds; join in last p of preceding cloverleaf, and continue as before until there are seven sections to complete the wheel. For edging tidies the upper part of the wheel should be buttonholed on to the goods, the material being afterward cut away from the back of the work. If a few of the wheels are likewise inserted above the border in the same way at distances it adds greatly to the beauty of the finished scarf.
