To begin, ch 13. 1st row: S c in 3rd ch from hook, s c in each st of ch (Use in all), ch 2, turn. 2nd row: S c in each s c across. Ch 2, turn. 3rd row: S c in 1st s c, then thread over as for making a d c. Insert hook in sp between 2nd and 3rd s c's of 1st row, bring hook out through sp between 3rd and 4th s c's and complete d c. * Skip 2nd s c of previous row (the one which lies behind the d c just made), s c in next s c of previous row. Then thread over as for a d c, insert hook in next sp of 1st row, and complete d c as before. Repeat from *, ending row with s c in last st (5 d c in all). Ch 2, turn. 4th row: S c in each st across. Ch 2, turn.
5th row: S c in 1st s c of previous row, * then make a d c by putting the hook under the 1st d c of the 3rd row, skip next s c of previous row (the one which lies behind the d c just made), s c in next s c. Repeat from * ending row with s c in last st. Ch 2, turn. 6th row: Same as 4th row. 7th to 11th rows incl: Repeat 5th and 6th rows alternately. Then ch 4, turn. 12th row: Skip 1 st, d c in top of next st (not under d c), * ch 1, skip 1 st, d c in top of next, and repeat from * 3 more times. Ch 2, turn. 13th row: S c in 1st d c, 3 s c in 1st sp (to shape edge), s c in each d c and in each sp to end of row (13 s c in all), ch 2, turn.
14th row: S c in each s c. Ch 2, turn. 15th row: Same as 3rd row (with an additional d c). Repeat from beginning of 4th row, thus increasing 2 sts in 1st sp of each row with sps.
Work in this manner, making 1 sp more than in previous row of sps and 1 d c more than in previous section of d c ridges until 5 sections are made. (9 d c ridges.)
Ch 2, turn, and make 9 d c sps over this section. This row is center of tie-back. Ch 2, turn. Next row: Make 1 s c in each sp and 1 s c in each d c (thus decreasing) and finish section as before. (9 d c ridges in all.) Hereafter in making rows of sps, in each row of sps make 1 sp less than previous row of sps, making 8 sps for next row, 7 sps for next, etc. In making the 1st rows of s c over row of sps, make 1 s c in each sp and 1 s c in each d c. When 5 more sections are made, fasten and break off.
With Sport Green make a loop on one end and work a row of s c over it. Cover a button to sew on other end. Make a tassel of about 150 strands 8 inches long and sew under button.
