*Tatted Rose-and-Star Doily**By Mrs. M. M. Stoddard*

Commence in the center of the star with a ring of
2 double knots, 1 picot, (3 double knots, 1 picot) five times, 1 double knot,
close and tie. Make a ring of 3 double
knots, 1 picot, (4 double knots, 1 picot) twice, 3 double knots, close; *a
chain of 5 double knots, 1 picot, 5 double knots; a ring of 3 double knots,
join to last picot of preceding ring, and finish ring as before: make a chain
like preceding; another ring, joining to last ring as directed; a chain of 3
double knots; a ring of double knots, join to last picot of previous ring, (5
double knots, 1 picot) twice, 3 double knots, close; chain of 3 double knots; a
ring like the 1

^{st}, joining to preceding by side picot; 5 double knots, join to last long chain made, 5 double knots; another ring, as before; again the chain, joining to chain opposite; another ring; 12 double knots, join to picot of center ring, 12 double knots’ a ring like 1^{st}, joining to middle picot of last ring made; repeat from * until you have completed six points, joining last ring of last point to 1^{st}of 1^{st}point by middle picot, and last long chain at base of 1^{st}ring. This completes the star, of which seven are required to form the doily. Place one in the center and join the others around it by the middle picot of 4thring in each point; then join the outside stars, each to the preceding and last to 1^{st}in the same way, leaving three free points at the edge. Join with shuttle, or with needle and thread, as is easiest.
Fill each space between stars with a rose made as
follows: Commence in the center with a
ring of 7 double knots, 1 picot, 7 double knots, close; make 2 double knots, (1
picot, 3 double knots) 3 times, join to picot at top of ring, (3 double knots,
1 picot) three times, 1 double knot, close and tie. Around the center make a ring of 7 double
knots, join to picot of center ring, 7 double knots, close; turn, make 9 double
knots, draw through same picot, 9 double knots, thus making a double ring; make
a chain of 2 double knots, 1 picot, (3 double knots, 1 picot) twice, 2 double
knots; make another double ring as before, joining to next picot of center, and
repeat until you have 8 rings and chains alternating, joining a ring at top and
bottom of center ring and three on each side.
Join to the points of the stars either as you work, or with needle and
thread, which can be neatly done if care is taken. If joined as you work, join a chain by 2
picots to 2d and 3d rings of point in 1

The stars and roses may be combined to form a
variety of pleasing designs.^{st}outer star, next chain to 2 corresponding rings of point in next outer star, next chain to 2 rings of next point in same star, miss a chain, join next to 2 rings of point in center star, next to 2 rings in next point of center star, miss a chain, and join next to 2 rings in point of 1^{st}star, preceding the point with which you started.

*Child’s Tatted Bonnet**By Jennie Johnson*

The wheel in center of crown is made first. Make 1 double knot, 1 small picot, 8 double
knots, (1 picot, 4 double knots) twice, 1 picot, 9 double knots, close; leave
about ½ inch thread, make a ring of 7 double knots, 1 medium-long picot, (6
double knots, 1 picot0 3 times, 7 double knots, close; leave about 3/8 inch of
thread and make another ring in the same way, joining to preceding by side
picot; leave ½ inch thread and make another ring of 9 double knots, picot, (4
double knots, picot) twice, 9 double knots, joining this also to preceding ring
by side picot. Continue in this way
until you have 8 of the smaller rings surrounded by 16 large ones. After making the last 2 large rings, join the
thread to the 1

^{st}small picot made in 1^{st}ring, and fasten off neatly.
2. Make a ring
of (10 double knots, picot) 3 times, 10 double knots, close; fasten to a picot
of ring in last row, leave a short space of thread, make another ring in same
way, joining to preceding by side picot, draw thread through 1

3. Make (10
double knots, picot) 3 times, 10 double knots, close, joining by middle picot
to middle picot of ring in last row; turn, leave about ¼ inch of thread, make a
ring of 7 double knots, picot, (9 double knots, picot) twice, 7 double knots,
close; repeat, alternating the rings as described, and joining each to the
preceding. In the outside row of this
insertion every 4^{st}picot of following ring in last row, make another ring, joining to preceding as directed, join to next picot of same ring, and so continue around, making 32 rings in the row. Join last to 1^{st}, draw through picot, and fasten off.^{th}ring is made thus: 7 double knots, picot, (6 double knots, picot) 3 times, 7 double knots, close.

4. Like 3d
row, joining 2 rings to every 4

5. The
front portion of the cap is formed of sic large wheels, the same as made for
the crown, joined to one another by the picots of 3 rings, and to the crown by
picots of 4 rings. One ring in the crown
is left between each 2 wheels. The
spaces between the wheels, at the other edge, are filled by couplets of large
rings made thus: 7 double knots, picot, (9double knots, picot) twice, 7 double
knots, close; make another ring just the same and make 6 more couplets.^{th}ring of 3d row.6. The cap is finished by two double rows of rings all around it, as follows; Make a ring of 10 double knots, join to an outside ring of cap, 10 double knots, close; leave ½ inch, make a ring of 7 double knots, 1 picot, (2 double knots, 1 picot) 6 times, 7 double knots, close; the small rings are not joined to one another at the side, but the large ones are, by 1

^{st}side picot. A small ring is joined to every loose ring of the wheels and crown, and to each couplet 3 are joined, 1 to each ring and 1 between rings. In order to turn the corner squarely, make a large ring as usual after the small one, then, another large ring and another, leaving about 3/8 inch of thread between, before making the next small ring.

7. Same as 5

^{th}row, joining each small ring to middle picot of large ring in last row. At the corner make an extra ring in the center and 1 at each side.

The open spaces in center of wheels, and between wheels across the front, are filled with tiny spiderwebs, which add much to the appearance of the cap and are little work. Carry the thread across from picot to picot, then knot all together in center of space and weave three or four times around the knot.

Run narrow ribbon in and out between small and large wheels of last two rows, line the cap with silk to match, and add ties and side bows of wider ribbon of the same color.

*A Collar of Lace and Tatting**By Jennie Johnson*

Sewing-silk was used for the collar, but thread of
any grade preferred may be substituted in making edgings or borders. Either the narrow or wide cloverleaf pattern
is very dainty for trimming babies’ garments, handkerchiefs, and other fine,
small articles.

Tie ends of thread from the two shuttles – or the spool and one shuttle – together and trim closely.

1. Commencing with the cloverleaf, make a ring of (5 double knots, 1 picot) 3 times, 5 double knots, close; another ring of 5 double knots, join to last picot of preceding ring, (6 double knots, picot) twice, 5 double knots, close; another ring like 1

^{st}, joining to side picot of 2d ring; chain of 8 double knots; ring of 6 double knots, join to last picot in last ring of cloverleaf, 6 double knots, picot, 6 double knots, close; make another ring like the one just made, close together; now make a long chain of 8 double knots, (picot, 8 double knots) twice, join to 1

^{st}picot in last ring made; make another long chain like preceding, t hen a ring of 6 double knots, picot, 6 double knots, join to same picot 1

^{st}long chain was joined to, 6 double knots, close; make another ring in same way, close to last, joining to the picot of ring that was joined to the cloverleaf, then 8 double knots, and continue with 2d cloverleaf, joining 1

^{st}ring by side picot to preceding ring. Repeat to length desired.

2. Make the smaller cloverleaf as follows: (3 double knots, picot) 3 times, 3 double knots, close; 3 double knots, fasten to last picot of preceding ring, (4 double knots, fasten to last picot of preceding ring, (4 double knots, picot) twice, 3 double knots, close; make 3d ring like 1

^{st}, joining to side picot of 2d ring, and by middle picot of 2d ring to 2d picot of long chain in preceding row; make a chain of 7 double knots, 1 picot, 7 double knots, and repeat, joining 1

^{st}ring of 2d cloverleaf by middle picot to middle picot of last ring of preceding cloverleaf.

3. Make a small cloverleaf as directed, joining by middle picot of 2d ring to picot of chain in last row; then, if the lace is to be attached to a band of insertion, as in the model, make the chain of 4 double knots, (1 long picot, 2 double knots) twice, picot, 4 double knots; repeat.

*A Dainty Cushion-Cover in Tatting**By Mrs. M. M. Stoddard*

Commence in the center of the square medallion
with a four-ring figure, as follows: (2 double knots, 1 picot) 7 times, 2
double knots, close; make 3 more rings in same way, joining each to preceding
by 1

2. Make 3
rings as directed, joining each by 1^{st}side picot, and last to 1^{st}in same way. Fasten off neatly and securely.^{st}side picot to preceding, to form a cloverleaf, and joining the 2d ring by middle picot to the 3d picot of a center ring; make a chain of (2 double knots, 1 picot) 11 times, 2 double knots; another cloverleaf, joining 1

^{st}ring by middle picot to middle picot of last ring in preceding cloverleaf, and 2d ring by middle picot to 5

^{th}picot of same center ring; repeat around, making 8 alternating cloverleaves and chains, joining each 2 cloverleaves as directed to a center ring, last cloverleaf to 1

^{st}, and last chain to base of 1

^{st}cloverleaf. This completes a very pretty wheel, which may be used in a variety of ways.

3. *Make a ring of (2 double knots, 1 picot) 5 times, 2 double knots, close; make a chain of (2 double knots, 1 picot) 3 times, 2 double knots; a ring of 6 double knots, join to picot of center ring, 6 double knots, close; make a chain like the last; again a ring, joining to next picot of center ring, and repeat until you have joined 5 rings, one to each picot of 1

^{st}ring made; make a chain and join to base of 1

^{st}ring, * turn; make a chain of (2 double knots, 1 picot) 5 times, 2 double knots, a ring of 7 double knots, join to middle picot of last short chain, 7 double knots, close; repeat rings and chains, joining each ring to middle picot of the short chain in last row, and last chain where 1

^{st}started, at base of figure; make a chain of (2 double knots, 1 picot) 9 times, 2 double knots; a ring of 11 double knots, 1 picot, 11 double knots, close; a ring of 11 double knots, join to middle picot of chain in center wheel, 11 double knots, close; a chain of (2 double knots, 1 picot0 5 times, 2 double knots; repeat from * to *; make a chain of (2 double knots, 1 picot) 8 times, 2 double knots, join to middle picot of next chain of center wheel, make another chain like the last, again repeat from * to *, joining the 1

^{st}of these side figures by 1

^{st}picot of 2d chain to 1

^{st}picot of chain in corner figure, and 2d to 1

^{st}side figure by middle picot of 2d chain. Make a chain of (1 picot, 2 double knots) 5 times, ,a ring of 11 double knots, join to next chain of center wheel, 11 double knots, close; another ring of 11 double knots, 1 picot, 11 double knots; a chain of (2 double knots, 1 picot) 9 times, 2 double knots; repeat the corner figure, again make the chain of 9 picots, each separated by 2 double knots, a ring of 11 double knots, join to picot of ring opposite, 11 double knots, close; another ring, joining to picot of same chain as the last (opposite) ring, thus making 4 of the large rings in a group, and continue until the square is completed, joining last long chain to base of 1

^{st}corner figure, and connecting all the figures as directed.

4. To join the squares, make a wheel as at first described; make a cloverleaf, then a chain, exactly as for the wheel; repeat until you have 7 of each, joining each cloverleaf to the preceding by middle picot of 1

^{st}and last rings; after the 7

^{th}chain make a ring of 3 double knots, (1 picot, 2 double knots) twice, join to middle picot of 2d ring in last cloverleaf (2 double knots, 1 pciot0 4 times, 3 double knots, close; make a chain as before, a cloverleaf, joining 1

^{st}ring by middle picot to 5

^{th}picot of single ring last made, and by middle picot of 2d ring to same picot in 2d ring of cloverleaf opposite, last made. Continue alternating the chains and rings to the end, which finish with the single ring and chain each side. Join each of these chains to a chain fot eh center ring, and each chain along the side to a chain of the square or corner medallion, so that the work will lie smoothly. Fill the little space between the center wheel and inner corner of each medallion with a cloverleaf, each ring of 11 double knots, join to chain of the oblong section, 11 double knots, close; again, 11 double knots, join to chain of center wheel, 11 double knots, close; make another ring, joining to chain of next oblong section, close, and join at the base to middle chain of corner figure in medallion.

By using coarse thread, this cover could be enlarged sufficiently to make a very pretty top for a sofa-pillow. The medallions make lovely insets for various purposes, as do the oblong sections.
