Steel Crochet Hook No. 10 or 11.

A piece of fabric 12½ x 12½ inches.

Tray mat measures about 12 x 17 inches.

Roll and whip edges of 2 opposite sides of fabric. Fold piece in half (rolled edges together); measure 1½ inches up from raw edge along fold of fabric and mark with a pin. Measure 1½ inches up from same raw edge along rolled edges and mark with an­other pin. With a compass or a saucer or free hand draw an arc from pin to pin. Now cut along pencil line through both thick­nesses of fabric to form a double scallop on end of mat. Machine stitch along curved edge, then roll and whip edge of double scallop. Finish opposite end in same way.

     Starting at end of a double scallop work sc closely around entire piece. Join with sl st in 1st sc made. Now work end design as follows: 1st row: Ch 1, sc in same place as sl st, * ch 5, skip about ⅜ inch, sc in next st. Re­peat from * until there are 21 loops, work sc across to ½ inch from point between scallops, ch 12, sc in st on next scallop to cor­respond with st at beginning of ch-12. Ch 1, turn, work 16 sc over ch-12, sl st in next sc, ch 1, turn, sc in next sc, (ch 5, skip 2 sc, sc in next sc) 5 times; now work sc and ch-5 loops to corre­spond with 1st scallop. Fasten off. 2nd row: With right side facing attach thread in an sc 1¼ inches from center point (between scal­lops), ch 5, holding back the last loop of each d tr on hook make 5 d tr in next ch-5 loop, thread over and draw through all loops on hook (cluster made); (ch 5, cluster in next loop) 4 times; ch 5, sl st in st to correspond with other end. Ch 7, turn. 3rd row: Sc in 2nd ch-5 loop, (ch 7, sc in next loop) 3 times; ch 7, sl st in same place where thread was at­tached, sl st across next ¾ inch on fabric. Turn. 4th row: (Ch 5, in next ch-7 loop make cluster, ch 5 and cluster) 5 times; ch 5, sl st in st to correspond with other end. Ch 7, turn. 5th row: Skip ch-5, (sc in next loop, ch 7) 9 times; sl st in base of ch-5. Fasten off.

First Motif … Ch 10, join with sl st to form ring. 1st rnd: 16 sc in ring. Join. 2nd rnd: Ch 1, sc in same place as sl st, (ch 5, skip 1 sc, sc in next sc) 7 times; ch 5, sl st in 1st sc. 3rd rnd: Sl st in 2 ch, ch 5, d tr cluster in same loop, ch 6, sl st in 2nd ch-7 loop on last row on fabric, ch 4, d tr cluster in next loop on motif, ch 4, sl st in next ch-7 loop, ch 6, (cluster in next loop on motif, ch 10) 6 times. Join last ch-10 with sl st in top of 1st cluster. Fasten off.

Second Motif … Make another motif and join it in same way to corresponding two ch-7 loops at other end of last row on fabric. Fasten off.

Center Motif . . . Work 1st and 2nd rnds same as on 1st motif. 3rd rnd: Sl st in 2 ch, ch 5, d tr cluster in same loop, ch 6, skip one ch-7 loop on fabric, sl st in next loop, ch 4, d tr cluster in next loop on motif, ch 4, sl st in next loop on fabric, ch 6, d tr cluster in next loop on motif, ch 5, sl st in corresponding ch-10 loop on 2nd motif, ch 5, (cluster in next loop on motif, ch 10) 4 times; ch 5, sl st in corresponding ch-10 loop on 1st motif, ch 5, sl st in top of 1st cluster. Fasten off. Work other end of mat same as this.

Edging1st rnd: With right side facing attach thread in 1st sc on straight edge of fabric, ch 1, sc in same place where thread was attached, * ch 10, skip about ½ inch, sc in next st. Repeat from * across to last st on straight edge. Now work along scallop as fol­lows: (Ch 10, holding back the last loop of each d tr on hook make d tr in each of the next 3 loops, thread over and draw through all loops on hook) 7 times; sl st in next free loop on motif. Fasten off. Attach thread in corresponding loop of motif on other end, (work d tr's in next 3 loops as before, ch 10) 7 times; sc in 1st sc on straight edge of fabric. Work remainder of 1st rnd to correspond. 2nd rnd: Ch 1, * in next loop make sc, h dc, dc, tr, 8 d tr, tr, dc, h dc and sc (shell made). Repeat from * across straight edge and in the next 6 loops; in next loop (be­tween the last 2 groups of joined d tr's) make sc, h dc, dc, tr and 4 d tr; in next loop (on motif) make 4 d tr, tr, dc, h dc and sc (2 half shells made). (Work shells in each of the next 2 loops on motif and half shells on each of the following 2 loops) 3 times. Continue thus around. Join and fasten off.
