Romance in handkerchief edgings
Dainty edgings give a delightfully feminine air to handkerchiefs. Crochet these interesting new designs with J. & P. Coats Tatting Cotton, size 70, or the fine sizes from 50 to 100 of J. & P. Coats or Clark's O.N.T. Mercerized Crochet—either white or any of the lovely pastels. Use Milward's steel crochet hook No. 10, 12 or 14.
