Six Pointed Star Bedspread Pattern #210

In Spool Cotton Co. #85, Bedspreads, this pattern is called Dawn.

MATERIALS:
1 Milward's steel crochet hook No. 6 or 7
Choose one of the following threads:
J. & P. Coats Knit-Cro-Sheen (approx. 66 balls)
Clark's O.N.T. Lustersheen (approx. 51 skeins)
Clark's O.N.T. Knitting and Crochet Cotton (approx. 51 balls)

This amount is sufficient for a double size spread in White or Ecru. Color requires about one-third more.

Gauge: Each block measures about 7½ inches across from side to side, and requires about 95 yards of thread.

For a double size spread (about 90 x 116 inches), or a single size spread (about 75 x 116 inches), make the necessary amount of blocks and then join them together to correspond with measurement.

In joining blocks the scallops across the top and bottom are not the same as those along the sides, as shown in illustration. To curve corners at bot­tom, make strips of 11 blocks along each side. The other strips are made of 12 and 11 blocks alternately.

   To begin, ch 4 and join in ring with sl st. 1st rnd: Ch 3 (ch 3 at beginning of each rnd is counted as 1 d c throughout directions. End each rnd with a sl st in 3rd st of ch-3 first made).
