Leaf Luncheon Set Pattern #7073

Materials: Clark's O.N.T. Mercerized Crochet, size 30, 30 balls of Ecru and 10 balls of Sport Green; or J. & P. Coats Mercerized Crochet, size 30, 23 balls of Ecru and 7 balls of Sport Green.
Milward's steel crochet hook No. 11.

This amount is sufficient for 6 place mats, each about 12 x 18 inches and a center mat about 14 x 32 inches. Leaves are made individually and then sewed on.

Gauge: 7 sps make 1 inch; 7 rows make 1 inch.

Place Mat. Starting at one end, with Ecru make a chain tightly to measure about 20 inches, turn. 1st row: D c in 6th ch from hook. * Ch 2, skip 2 ch, d c in next ch. Repeat from * until row measures 19 inches. Ch 5, turn. Cut off remainder of chain. 2nd row: Skip ch-2, d c in next d c, * ch 2, d c in next d c. Repeat from * across. Ch 5, turn. Repeat 2nd row until mat measures 12 inches. Break off. Attach Sport Green to one corner and work a row of s c closely together all around edges. Fasten and break off.

Leaf. Starting along center, with Sport Green, ch 45 (to measure about 3 inches), turn. 1st row: S c in 2nd ch from hook, s c in each ch across. Ch 1, turn. Hereafter always pick up the back loop of each s c of previous row. 2nd row: S c in each s c across, decreasing 1 s c at both ends (to decrease, work off 2 s c as 1 sc). Ch 1, turn. Repeat 2nd row until 16 s c remain. Then continuing with the usual decreases at one end only, increase 2 s c at opposite end every other row, twice. Break off. This completes one half of leaf; for other half, attach thread to foundation chain and work to correspond. Work a row of s c all around leaf. Make 4 leaves for each place mat and sew on as in illustration.

Center Mat. Work as for Place Mats but having the 1st row measure about 32 inches. Then work for 14 inches. Break off. Make 8 leaves and sew on as in illustration.
