FOR THE TWO THIRDS OF YOUR LIFE WHEN YOUR BED IS ALL DRESSED UP
Use a Lovely Crocheted Bedspread
Statisticians say we spend one third of our life in bed! For the other two thirds of the time let your bed boast the glamour of a crocheted spread. A crocheted spread is a real investment in beauty. It wears so well, practically forever, and it remains a classic fashion while other bedspread fashions come and go. Then there is the final satisfaction of knowing that it is inimitable ... that only those who can do exquisite crocheting can possess its loveliness.
TO LAUNDER COTTON ARTICLES
... Before laundering, record all important measurements. Launder article in warm water, using a good neutral soap or soap flakes. Allow to dry thoroughly on a flat surface. Then block article, following Blocking Directions.
IMPORTANT ... Be sure to buy at one time sufficient material of the same dye lot to complete the article you wish to make, as it is impossible to avoid slight variations in color in different dye lots.
GAUGE ... Before starting your article, make a small sample of the stitch or motif. If your working tension is too tight or too loose, use a finer or coarser needle, to obtain the correct gauge.
BLOCKING DIRECTIONS ... Following measurements given, with rustproof pins pin article right side down on a well padded flat surface. If article is too large for pressing table, block in sections of convenient size. Be sure to pin out all picots, loops, scallops, etc., along outside edges. Press through a damp cloth with a moderately hot iron (do not rest iron on decorative raised stitches). When thoroughly dry, remove pins.
