"Designs in Crochet"

Some useful and pretty designs in tatting and crochet are given in the accompanying illustrations. The wheel shown Illustration No. 4 is a particularly novel and attractive one. It can be applied to many purposes both useful and ornamental.

It makes beautiful mats, round or square, worked in the soft, bright Hamburg knitting silk, which knots better than the crochet twist; it also forms beautiful tidy ends when arranged in Vandykes, scallops, or any preferred design. The square design in Illustration No. 3 (details in article section: Dainty Tatted Square) is likewise pretty worked in silk, and makes a good border with the corners placed together diamond-shape. Either of the insertions can be easily converted into a border by working one-half only lengthwise.
