CAP 544A

Starting at front edge, ch 218 (to measure about 13 inches), turn. 1st row: S c in 3rd ch from hook (1 p made), ch 4, s c in 3rd ch from hook (another p made), ch 1, s c in 10th ch of foundation (counting back from 1st p made), ch 4, * make a p, ch 4, make another p, ch 1, skip 4 ch of foundation, s c in next ch, ch 4. Repeat from * across (42 loops). Ch 5, turn. 2nd row: * Make a p as before, ch 4, make another p, ch 1, s c in next loop between 2 p's of previous row. Ch 4, repeat from * across. Ch 5, turn. Hereafter repeat 2nd row, increasing 1 loop at both ends of every 8th row, 3 times (48 loops). (To increase 1 loop at beginning of row, make a loop as before, then make s c in 1st p of 1st loop, make another loop as before, making the s c in next p of same 1st loop), continue in pattern across increasing 1 loop at end of row in the same way as for beginning until work measures 4½ inches in all. To shape center back of cap, decrease 1 loop at both ends of each of next 2 rows (to decrease, omit the last loop at each end). Then decrease 1 loop at end of each row until 38 loops remain. Then on next row work in pattern across 1st 16 loops, turn. Work back and forth over these 16 loops, decreasing 1 loop at both ends of each row until 1 loop remains. Break off. Attach thread to the 6th loop at center and work opposite side to correspond. Break off.

Insertion: To begin, ch 12, turn. 1st row: D c in 4th ch from hook, d c in same ch, ch 2, 3 d c in same ch (1 shell made), ch 2, skip 3 ch, s c in next ch, ch 2, skip 3 ch, in last ch make 3 d c, ch 2, and 3 d c (another shell). Ch 4, turn. 2nd row: Shell in 1st ch-2 (thus a shell is made over shell), ch 4, shell over next shell. Ch 4, turn. 3rd row: Shell over shell, ch 2, s c under ch-4, ch 2, shell over shell. Ch 4, turn. These last 2 rows constitute the pattern. Repeat these 2 rows alternately until work measures same length as center back (see diagram). Place insertion over both edges of center back of cap and sew in place leaving the shell edges free on outside. Then run a thread around curved edge and pull tightly, thus making gathers for crown to fit. Attach thread to foundation ch and working across lower edge of cap make * 1 shell in next loop, ch 2, s c in next loop, ch 2. Repeat from * across. Break off.

Front Ruffle: Across front edge, work ruffle as on bottom of pattern.

Rosettes and Shamrocks: Make 3 rosettes and 2 shamrocks and sew on as in illustration. For directions, see bottom of pattern. Draw a narrow ribbon through insertion and finish off with a bow at top. Sew a ribbon at each side for ties.

SACQUE 544B

Work starts at bottom of front, is worked in two sections up to the shoulders, then joined and continued in one down the back.

Right Front. Starting at bottom, ch 103 (to measure about 6 inches), turn. 1st row: S c in 3rd ch from hook (1 p made), ch 4, s c in 3rd ch from hook (another p made), ch 1, s c in 10th ch of foundation (counting back from 1st p made), ch 4, * make a p, ch 4, make another p, ch 1, skip 4 ch of foundation, s c in next ch, ch 4. Repeat from * across (19 loops). Ch 23, turn. 2nd row: Make 3 loops as before across ch-23, then * make a p, ch 4, make another p, ch 1, s c in next loop between 2 p's of previous row. Ch 4, repeat from * across. Ch 5, turn. 3rd row: * Make a p, ch 4, make another p, ch 1, s c in next loop between 2 p's of previous row. Ch 4, repeat from * across, increasing 1 loop at end of row (to increase 1 loop at end of row, make a loop as before, making the s c in 1st p of last loop, make another loop making the s c in last p of last loop). Ch 5, turn. 4th row: Work straight. Ch 5, turn. Repeat 3rd and 4th rows alternately until there are 28 loops in a row. Then on next row and every 5th row thereafter decrease 1 loop at underarm side (underarm side is the side with no increases), until 24 loops remain (to decrease, omit the last loop). Work straight until work measures 5½ inches at center, ending at underarm side, then ch 45, turn. Work 8 loops over ch-45 (this is sleeve) and continue in pattern across (32 loops in all). Hereafter work in pattern straight until work measures 9 inches in all. Then on next row decrease 2 loops at center front edge, thus starting neck shaping. Hereafter work in pattern decreasing 1 loop at neck edge every row until 6 loops in all are decreased. Work straight until work measures 1¾ inches from 1st row of neck shaping. Then increase 1 loop every other row at neck edge, 3 times (29 loops). Break off.

Left Front. Make another piece same as right front, ending at neck edge, then ch 50, and sl st to neck edge of right front. Break off.

Back. Attach thread at sleeve edge of right front and work in pattern across (68 loops). Ch 5, turn. Continue to work in pattern straight until sleeves measure 10 inches. To shape sleeves, decrease 8 loops at end of each of the next 2 rows (52 loops remain). Work straight for 1½ inches. Then increase 1 loop at both ends of next row and every 5th row thereafter 3 more times (60 loops). Work straight until underarm measures same as underarm of front. Break off. Sew up underarm and sleeve seams. To make edging, attach thread at lower edge of underarm, ch 3, make 2 d c in 1st loop, ch 2, 3 d c in same loop (1 shell made), * ch 2, s c in next loop, ch 2, in next loop work: 3 d c, ch 2, 3 d c. Repeat from * around all edges. Finish sleeves in same way. Sew a narrow ribbon to sacque at each side of neck edge and tie.

Rosettes and Shamrocks: Make 4 rosettes and 4 shamrocks and sew them on as in illustration. For directions, see bottom of pattern.

Repeat from * across (16 loops). Ch 5, turn. 2nd row: * Make a p as before, ch 4, make another p, ch 1, s c in next loop between 2 p's of previous row. Ch 4, repeat from * across. Ch 5, turn. Hereafter repeat 2nd row, until work measures 1½ inches. On next row work across 1st 6 loops, then ch 58, turn.

To make edging, work as follows: * S c in next loop, ch 4, s c in next loop, ch 4, s c in next loop, ch 4, s c in same loop, ch 4. Repeat from * across (thus increasing 1 loop in every 3rd loop). Ch 4, turn. 2nd row: S c in 1st loop, * ch 4, s c in next loop, repeat from * across. Ch 4, turn. 3rd row: * S c in next loop, ch 4, s c in next loop (2 loops made), make 3 more loops, then ch 4, 4-d c cluster in next loop, ch 4, 4-d c cluster in same loop (a group of clusters), ch 4, repeat from * across, ending with 5 loops.
