Milward's Steel Crochet Hook No. 7.

GAUGE … Each motif measures about 6 inches in diameter before joining. For a single size spread, about 75 x 108 inches, make 10 x 16 motifs. For a double size spread, about 90 x 108 inches, make 13 x 16 motifs.

FIRST MOTIF … Starting at center, ch 6, join with sl st. 1st rnd: Ch 4 (to count as tr), 15 tr in ring. Join with sl st to 4th st of ch-4. 2nd rnd: Ch 7, * tr in next tr, ch 3. Repeat from * around; join to 4th st of ch-7. 3rd rnd: Ch 4, * in next sp make a pc st—to make pc st, ch 1, make 5 tr in sp, drop loop from hook, insert hook in ch-1 preceding 5 tr and draw dropped loop through. Then make a tr and pc st in same sp. Make tr in next tr, ch 3, tr in next tr. Repeat from * around. Join last ch-3 to 4th st of ch-4. 4th rnd: Ch 4, pc st in same place as sl st, * tr in next pc st, pc st in next tr, tr in next pc st; in next tr make a pc st and a tr. Ch 4, in next tr make a tr and a pc st. Repeat from * around; join last ch-4 to 4th st of ch-4 first made. 5th rnd: Sl st in tip of next pc st, ch 4; * (pc st in next tr, tr in next pc st) twice; ch 4, skip next tr, 5 tr in next ch-4 sp, ch 4, skip next tr, tr in next pc st. Repeat from * around; join. 6th rnd: Sl st in tip of next pc st, ch 4, tr in next tr and in tip of next pc st, holding back the last loop of each tr on hook; thread over and draw through all loops on hook (a cluster). * Ch 5, skip next tr and sp, make 2 tr in next tr, tr in next 3 tr, 2 tr in next tr; ch 5, skip next sp and 1 tr; make tr in next 3 sts, holding back the last loop of each tr on hook; thread over and draw through all loops on hook (another cluster). Repeat from * around; join. 7th rnd: * Ch 11, skip next sp and 1 tr; tr in next 5 tr, holding back the last loop of each tr on hook and complete a cluster as before. Ch 11, s c in tip of next cluster. Repeat from * around. Join and fasten off. This completes one motif.

SECOND MOTIF … Work 1st 6 rnds as for first motif. 7th rnd: Ch 11, skip 1 sp and 1 tr, tr in next 5 tr, holding back the last loop of each tr on hook and complete a cluster as before. Ch 5, sl st in correspond­ing ch-11 loop on first motif (always keeping right side of work on top); ch 5, s c in tip of next cluster on second motif. Ch 5, sl st in next ch-11 loop on first motif; ch 5, skip next sp and tr; make a 5-tr cluster on second motif as before, and complete rnd as for first motif. Fasten off.

Make necessary number of motifs and join as 2nd motif was joined to first, leaving two ch-11 loops free between joinings.

FILL-IN MOTIF1st rnd: Starting at center, ch 8, make tr in 8th ch from hook; (ch 4, tr in same place as last tr was made) twice; ch 4, sl st in 4th st of ch-8 first made. 2nd rnd: Ch 4 (to count as tr), * in next sp make pc st, tr and another pc st; in next tr make tr, ch 6 and tr. Repeat from * around, joining last ch-6 to 4th st of ch-4 first made. 3rd rnd: Ch 4; tr in each of next 4 sts, holding back the last loop of each tr on hook; thread over and draw through all loops on hook (a cluster). Ch 5, sl st in a free ch-11 loop (of a large motif) between joinings, * ch 5, s c in next ch-6 loop of fill-in motif, ch 5, sl st in next free ch-11 loop on large motif, ch 5, tr in each of next 5 sts of fill-in motif, holding back the last loop of each tr on hook, and complete a cluster. Ch 5, sl st in next free ch-11 loop. Repeat from * around, joining last ch-5 with sl st to tip of 1st cluster made. Fasten off. Fill in all spaces between joinings in this manner.

EDGING … Attach thread to a joining point between any 2 motifs and work along entire outer edge of spread as follows: Make 7 s c in 1st loop of next motif; in each of next 6 loops of same motif (10 loops of corner motifs) make: 1 s c, 1 half d c, 5 d c, 4 tr, 5 d c, 1 half d c and 1 s c. Make 7 s c in next loop (preceding next joining), 7 s c in 1st loop of next motif, and continue thus around. Fasten off.
