First Large Motif. Ch 6, join with sl st to form ring. 1st rnd: Ch 6, * tr in ring, ch 2, repeat from * until 7 sps are made, then ch 2, sl st to 4th st of ch-6 first made (8 sps). 2nd rnd: Ch 4, 4 tr in 1st sp, * ch 2, 5 tr in next sp, repeat from * around. Join last ch 2 to 4th st of ch-4 first made (8 tr- groups). 3rd rnd: Ch 4, tr in same place as sl st, tr in each of next 4 tr, * tr in 1st ch of ch-2, ch 3, tr in next ch of same ch-2, tr in each of next 5 tr, repeat from * around. Join last ch 3 with sl st to 4th st of ch-4 first made. Then sl st in 1st tr of group. 4th rnd: Ch 4, tr in each of next 4 tr, working off together as for a cluster, * ch 4, 5 tr in next ch-3 sp, ch 4, skip 1st tr of next group, tr in each of next 5 tr, working off together as for a cluster, repeat from * around. Join last ch 4 with sl st to tip of cluster first made. 5th rnd: Ch 8, * skip first 3 ch of ch-4, tr in next ch, tr in each of next 5 tr, 1 tr in 1st ch of next ch-4, ch 4, 1 tr in tip of cluster, ch 4, repeat from * around. Join last ch 4 with sl st to 4th st of ch-8 first made. 6th rnd: * Ch 12, skip 1st tr of next group, tr in each of next 5 tr, working off together as for a cluster, ch 12, 1 s c in the single tr between the groups, repeat from * around. Join last ch 12 with sl st to base of ch-12 first made (16 loops). Break off. This completes a large motif.
Second Large Motif. Work as for first large motif to 5th rnd incl. 6th rnd: Ch 12, skip 1st tr of next group, tr in each of next 5 tr, working off together as for a cluster, ch 6, sl st in first ch-12 loop on first motif (always keeping right side of work on top), ch 6, 1 s c in the next single tr on second motif, ch 6, sl st in next ch-12 loop on first motif, ch 6, and make a cluster back on second motif as before. Complete this rnd as in first motif with no more joinings. Break off.
Make 11 more motifs joining each motif to previous one as second one was joined to first, leaving 6 ch-12 loops free on each side of joinings on each motif, thus making a strip of 13 motifs. Make a second strip of 13 motifs joining to first strip as follows:
First Motif of Second Strip. Work as for second motif of first strip and join, as before, to first motif along side of first strip, leaving 2 ch-12 loops free on first motif (counting from joining of first two motifs). Second Motif. Work as before to 5th rnd incl. and join to the two adjacent motifs as follows: 6th rnd: Work as for 6th rnd of previous motif, but join to the 3rd and 4th ch-12 loops (counting from joining) of second motif on first strip, then work 2 ch-12 loops back on same motif, then join to the 3rd and 4th ch-12 loops of first motif of second strip. Complete rnd as before, but with no more joinings. Break off. (Note. 2 ch-12 loops are left free on each motif later to be joined to fill-in-motif). Work next 11 motifs of this strip thus joining each motif to adjacent two motifs. Work 15 more strips joining as before. Fill-in-Motif. 1st rnd: Ch 8, tr in 8th ch from hook, ch 4, tr in same place, ch 4, tr in same place, ch 4, join with sl st to 4th ch of ch-8 first made (4 sps). 2nd rnd: Ch 4, 6 tr in first sp, * ch 5, 7 tr in next sp, repeat from * around, joining last ch 5 with sl st to 4th st of ch-4 first made. Sl st in 1st tr. 3rd rnd: Ch 4, tr in each of next 4 tr, working off together as for a cluster, ch 5, join to 1st ch-12 loop (as large motifs were joined) of a large motif, * ch 5, s c in next ch-4 loop back on fill-in-motif, ch 5, join to 2nd ch-12 loop of same large motif, ch 5, work a 5-tr cluster back on fill-in-motif, ch 5, join to 1st ch-12 loop of next large motif, and repeat from * around. Join and break off. Work and join the remainder of fill-in-motifs in the same way.
Edging. Attach thread to joining point between any two large motifs alongside. * Work 7 s c in 1st loop of next motif, in each of remaining loops of same motif work: 1 s c, 1 half d c, 5 d c, 4 tr, 5 d c, 1 half d c, 1 s c. In last loop work 7 s c. Repeat from * all around tablecloth.
For a crisp effect, starch and press.
A bedspread made with these same simple motifs using Clark's O.N.T. Knitting and Crochet Cotton will be most effective. Use the same instructions and Milward's steel crochet hook No. 4 or 5. The resulting motifs will be larger. The finished bedspread for a full size double bed should measure about 90 x 108 inches.
