Cocktail Napkin Pattern #248

These handkerchief linen cocktail napkins have a dainty edge and design in Mercerized Crochet Cotton. The white napkin is crocheted in yellow, the yellow crocheted in white. A smart new idea is to make a set of half yellow with white and half white with yellow.

For the cocktail napkins, use handkerchief or French linen, cut 8 inches square. Fold ⅛ inch hems and draw 2 or 3 threads through which to put the crochet hook. The yellow napkin is finished with a white edge and has white motifs and the white napkin has yellow motifs and a yellow edge.
