The Method Of Working The Triangle

For a triangle to match the lace given on page 2682 the following directions must be carefully followed. As with the lace, if a coarser cotton and a larger hook are used, the work will be correspondingly larger. Worked with Ardern's crochet cotton No. 40 and a fine hook, the triangle measures about 16 inches on its longest side.

Key to Abbreviations: Ch., chain; tr., treble; d.c, double crochet; 1. tr., long treble; si. St., slip stitch; bl., block or blocks; sp., space or spaces.

In order to avoid stretching, work the top of the triangle border in the following manner: 1 d.c. in 1st bl, then 3 ch. In next bl. 1 d.c, 3 ch. Repeat to end of border.

To inset the triangles, first place them on the right side of the cloth at the corners, and tack them firmly in position. Sew the triangle neatly all round, on the wrong side, then, about a quarter of an inch from the sewn edge, carefully cut away the material underneath, and hem down the cut edge.

If it is intended to attach the triangles closely to the lace, the two plain sides will require to be sewn to it, and the fancy edge only sewn on to the material.

In addition to crochet cotton, this class of lace can be worked in fine. mercerised cotton. This gives the silky appearance which is so much admired in crochet work articles, and it can be washed with the same satisfactory result as ordinary cotton.
