Rd 3. (Make 7 trebles over 5 trebles, chain 2) 6 times, join.

Rd 4. (Make 9 trebles over 7 trebles, chain 3) 6 times, join.

Rd 5. Slip to 2d treble, chain 3, 6 trebles in 6 trebles, * chain 6, fasten under 3 chain, chain 6, fasten under same chain, chain 6, 7 trebles over 9 trebles, missing 1st and last; repeat around, joining last 6

chain to top of 3 chain.

Rd 6. Make 5 trebles over 7 trebles, missing 1st and last, chain 6, fasten under 6 chain, chain 6, fasten in same loop, chain 6, miss 1

loop, fasten in next, chain 6, fasten in same, chain 6; repeat around, join.

Rd 7. Make 3 trebles over 5 trebles, (chain 6, fasten in next loop, chain 6, fasten in same, miss 1 loop) twice, chain 6, fasten in next, chain 6, fasten in same, chain 6; repeat around, join.

Rd 8. A treble in center of 3 trebles (chain 3 for 1st), chain 3, 2

trebles, 3 chain and 2 trebles in 2d loop, chain 3, shell of 2 trebles, 3

chain and 2 trebles in next 2d loop, chain 3; repeat around, join.

Rd 9. Chain 2, * a treble in shell, chain 3, fasten back in top of treble for a picot; repeat until you have made 5 picots, a treble in same shell, chain 2, fasten in top of single treble; repeat until you have made 5 scallops for the top of purse, and fasten off. By continuing the scallops entirely around, you have a very pretty little doily.

Make the other side in the same way, and after having made the5

scallops place the two sides together and work the remaining 7

scallops in both, that is, in a shell of each, thus joining them.

For the chains, start from center of 1st scallop at side of opening, chain 45, pass through corresponding space on opposite side, join to a brass ring, one inch in diameter, which has been closely filled with double crochet, a double in next double of the ring, chain 40, pass back through 2d scallop, and fasten to scallop next that from which you started; slip to next scallop on same side, chain 35, pass through 3d scallop on opposite side, join to ring, as before, chain 40, pass through 4th scallop and fasten to corresponding scallop opposite, skip to next scallop on same side, chain 45, pass through 5th scallop and join to ring. If preferred, the ring may not be filled until the chains are joined; then work around, join and fasten off, leaving a length of thread which may be put into a needle and run partially around the ring.

The purse may be lined or not, as preferred, as the work is close enough to prevent coins slipping through. A little pocket of chamois may be slipped in, if desired. The purse is especially pretty if made of black, gray, cardinal or other color of purse-silk.

Treble Crochet :Put thread over needle as if to make a chain stitch, insert hook in work and draw thread through, making 3 stitches on needle; (take up thread and draw through 2) twice. Many prefer to 59

index-60_1.png

make what is called a "long treble", drawing first through 1 stitch, then through 2 stitches twice, as directed.
