Materials: Clark's O.N.T. (34 balls) or J. & P. Coats (28 balls) Mercerized Crochet, size 20, White or Ecru.
Milward's steel crochet hook No. 10.
5 yds. of 36-inch width linen.
When completed, tablecloth measures about 60 x 68 inches, and 8 napkins each about 15½ inches square. Strips of lace are made, and then flowers are made and appliquéd. Cut strips of linen, being sure to cut on straight of goods (not bias), each 4½ inches wide and according to length specified on Diagram B. Make a ¼ inch hem on long sides of long linen strips and along all edges of No. 1 and No. 11 corner pieces. Cut a piece of paper measuring about 60½ x 68 inches. Pin each linen strip in place on paper as in Diagram A. Now trim short ends of linen strips leaving ¼ inch for hem. Remove from paper and hem edges.
First Lace Strip. Starting at short end, ch 83 (to measure about 6½ inches), turn. 1st row: 1 d tr in 10th ch from hook, 1 d tr in next ch, * ch 5, skip 4 ch, 1 d tr in each of next 2 ch. Repeat from * across (12 sps and ½ sp). Ch 2, turn. 2nd row: * S c in each of next 2 d tr, ch 5. Repeat from * across, ending row with 1 s c in each of last 2 d tr. Ch 8, turn. 3rd row: Skip 1st 2 s c and ch-5, * make 1 d tr in each of next 2 s c, ch 5. Repeat from * across, ending row with 1 d tr in each of last 2 s c. Then, ch 10, make 1 d tr in same place as d tr just made. Ch 4, turn (11 sps and ½ sp on each end). 4th row: S c in each of 4th and 5th sts of ch-10, * ch 5, s c in each of next 2 s c. Repeat from * across, ending row with 1 s c in each of last 2 d tr. Ch 8, turn. These last 2 rows constitute the pattern. Repeat these 2 rows until lace strip measures 14½ inches along 1 edge, ending with the d tr-row and omitting the last ch-10 and the last d tr. Then, ch 2, turn. To decrease, work as follows: Next row: S c in each of 1st 2 d tr, * ch 5, s c in each of next 2 d tr. Repeat from * across, ending row as usual. Ch 8, turn. Following row: Work as for 3rd row, ending row with 1 d tr in each of last 2 d tr. Ch 2, turn. Repeat these last 2 rows until only the ½-sp remains. Break off. This completes the 1st lace strip. Make remaining strips to correspond, following measurements on Diagram A. Sew lace strips and linen strips alternately in position, inconspicuously.
Flower: Starting at center, ch 7, join with sl st to form ring. 1st rnd: Ch 5 (to count as tr and ch-1), make 19 tr with ch-1 between each tr. Join last ch-1 with sl st to 4th st of ch-5 first made. 2nd rnd: Make s c in each tr and in each ch-1 sp (39 s c). 3rd rnd: * Ch 3, tr in each of next 3 s c, ch 3, s c in next s c (1 petal made). Repeat from * around (10 petals in all). Break off.

Repeat this row on other side of foundation ch. Break off. Make 3 more leaves. This completes 1 group. Make 40 groups and sew to lace strips as in Diagram A.
