ÉTOILE DORÉE.

Rules and Explanation of Terms.

The following Designs are formed by a very simple combination of Tatting and Crochet, the more elaborate style of both Works being avoided, so that any Lady with a knowledge of the first rules of each Art will be able to accomplish the patterns without the least difficulty, the Stars and Diamonds being made in Tatting and afterwards worked round with loops of chain Crochet.

The numerous purposes to which the work can be applied far exceed the limits of this Book, as it admits of being made in every material. The Stars have a good effect for spotting and trimming Dresses, and, when worked in black or white Silk, are suitable for Cloak and Bonnet Trimmings. For Antimacassars and Doyleys, white and colored Cotton can be substituted for the Gold and Wool; most of the Designs are adapted for Church Needlework.

The Gold Tatting Twine can be obtained in two qualities; the least expensive should be used for Doyleys and Antimacassars, but for Church Needlework, or Collars and Sleeves, the better make is most suited.

The new Tatting Silk is a substitute for the Gold, and is made in two sizes, No. 1 being the coarser.

In these Designs the knots should be made on the right side of the work, the reverse side having the best effect.

"To Commence," in Crochet—Put the needle into a stitch or pearl loop, and, leaving an end, bring the wool through in a loop.

"To Join," in Crochet—Take the needle out of the loop, put it into the stitch to be joined, and bring the loop through this stitch, always joining to the centre of a loop of chain.


TATTING.

THE STARS AND DIAMONDS.

For which a Shuttle and Ring and Pin will be required. The Shuttle is to be filled with the materials as directed.

"A Pearl Loop," in Tatting—Turn the thread which forms the foundation loop over the pin and continue the stitches.

"A Double Stitch," in Tatting—Is formed by a single and a reverse stitch worked alternately.

Octagon Star—Commence a loop, work 1 double stitch, then (1 pearl and 2 double stitches alternately 7 times), 1 pearl, 1 double, draw the loop quite close, place the two ends together, knot them firmly and cut off the ends; it is better to knot the gold twice to make it very secure.

Sexagon Star—Commence a loop, work 1 double, then (1 pearl and 2 double 5 times), 1 pearl, 1 double; draw close &c. as for the previous Star.

The Diamond 1st Oval—Commence a loop, work 4 double stitches, then 1 pearl, 2 double, 1 pearl, 2 double, 1 pearl, 4 double; draw quite close, and work 3 Ovals more the same, commencing them close to the last; and to fasten off firmly, pass the first end through the last oval, and then through the other three; knot the two ends together.[Pg 6]


THE ZEPHYR SLEEVE.

DESIGN No. 1.

Materials—2 skeins of extra coarse Gold-colored Netting Silk, or Gold Twine; 2 skeins of Cerise ordinary Coarse Silk; Walker's Penelope Crochet Needle No 3 ½; a Shuttle; Ring and pin No. 3. Andalusian Wool and Tatting Silk can be used if preferred.

The foundation of the Sleeve in the Engraving is of Tulle or Brussels Net, made up into puffs, but the style can be varied according to the dress, and the work without the net is suited for Cuffs to tight Sleeves.

THE STARS.

With the gold silk or twine make 20 Octagon Stars as page 4.

The Wristband, 1st Star—Take one of the gold stars and with the cerise silk and crochet needle commence in one of the pearl loops of it, work 9 chain and 1 plain in each of the 8 pearl loops, fasten off, knotting the ends together.

2nd Star—Commence in a pearl loop of another gold star, work (9 chain and 1 plain in a pearl loop as before, 6 times), then 5 chain, join to the centre of the 4th loop of chain of the 1st star, 4 chain, 1 plain in the next pearl, 5 chain, join to the next loop of the 1st star, 4 chain, 1 plain in the next pearl, and fasten off.

Work 6 Stars more the same as the last, which finishes the Band.

The Large Star—Work as the 1st Star, but at the end of the round instead of fastening off work 4 single on the first loop of chain, then (10 chain, miss 9 and 1 plain in the 9 chain of the 1st round, 6 times), 5 chain, join to the centre of the 2nd loop of chain of the last star of the band, 5 chain, miss 9, 1 plain as before, 5 chain, join to the next loop of the 1st star, 5 chain, miss 9, 1 plain, and fasten off.

Materials—The same as previous Sleeve.

Work 9 Stars the same as the 1st Star in the preceding direction; and for the Band—with the gold make a crochet chain of about 14 inches, turn, and along the chain work a row of 1 chain, miss 1, and 1 treble. Fasten off.

THE WRISTBAND.

IN TATTING.

1st Œillet—Fill the shuttle with the gold silk or twine and commence a loop, work 2 double stitches, then (1 pearl and 2 double 3 times), draw the loop quite close; and for the

2nd Œillet—Commence a loop half an inch from the last and work 2 double, then join to [Pg 8]the last pearl loop, work 2 double, 1 pearl, 2 double, 1 pearl, 2 double, draw close. Join to the Silk left between the œillets, which will keep it firm; and there will now be about a quarter of an inch between the œillets, which is just sufficient to keep the work straight, Repeat the 2nd œillet until there are 21, then leave a quarter of an inch of silk and join to the last pearl, leave another quarter and join to the next pearl, which is the centre one of the œillet. Turn the work and join to the centre pearl loop of each œillet, leaving a quarter of an inch between to make a straight line to correspond with the first side. Fasten off.

With the black or colored silk and crochet needle commence in one of the spaces of gold left between the œillets, work 5 chain and 1 plain in the centre pearl loop of the next œillet, 5 chain, 1 plain in the next space; repeat round both sides of the Band and fasten off.
