## Overview

...
Upper and lower edge--6 chain, 1 sextuple treble on the 2nd picot of
the
lozenge = 6 chain, 1 triple treble on the 4th picot of the lozenge.
Coming back over the 2 trebles of 6 chain, work in 3 journeys to and
fro, 13 plain stitches.
After the 2nd row of plain stitches, 1 quintuple treble on the 6th
treble of the lozenge, and then 4 rows of plain stitches.
After the 6th row, pass at once to the leaves above the lozenge: *****
15 chain, 1 plain on the picot that forms the point of the lozenge =
turn the work to the wrong side = on the chain stitches work: ****** 3
plain, 1 half treble, 4 trebles, 1 half treble, 3 plain = turn the
work
to the right side = returning and starting from the point of the leaf:
1
chain and 1 plain on each of the lower stitches.
For the 2nd leaf: 12 chain = turn the work and repeat, as for the
former
leaf, from ***** to ******.
This leaf, being finished like the first, with this difference that it
ends at the upper point, you pass to the 2nd little square: 6 chain, 1
sextuple treble on the picot next to the leaves; 3 chain, 1 triple
treble on the 3rd picot, counted from the leaves = 6 chain, 1 sextuple
treble on the 5th picot of the lozenge; keep the 2 last loops of the
treble on the needle, 1 sextuple treble on the picot between every 3
chain of the small square with leaves; draw up the 2 last loops
together
with those already on the needle = 6 chain, 1 triple treble on the
picot
on the long side of the small square = 3 rows of 13 plain each.
With the last stitch of each of these rows, take 1 of the chain

stitches
between the long trebles.
After the 3rd row: 1 sextuple treble on the first treble on the small
leaf of the small middle square = 3 rows of plain stitches to finish
the
square, and repeat from *****.
The upper row is similar to this but should be worked from right to
left.
Scalloped edge.--In the right corner of the 1st oblong figure of the
outside corner: 1 double treble, 2 chain, 1 double treble on the 4th
plain stitch = 2 chain, 1 double treble on the stitch that forms the
corner stitch of the square = 2 chain, 1 plain at the extremity of the
first long leaf, 9 chain = 1 quadruple treble on the stitch between
the
2 leaves = 2 chain, 1 quadruple treble on the same stitch and on the
1st treble = 2 chain, 1 quadruple treble on the same stitch = 9 chain,
1
plain on the last stitch of the 2nd long leaf = turn the work: 1
chain,
1 plain on each of the chain stitches, and on each treble, 27 plain
stitches in all = turn the work: 1 chain, 1 plain, 2 chain, 1 plain on
the 2nd plain; repeat the last 12 times. Take in 1 stitch on each side
in every row, turn the work after each row, and at the end of the last
fasten off. Fasten on at the foot of the scallop, not at the point,
and
work plain stitches all round it; 20 plain to the upper point, 40 in
all.
The open-work edge of the scallops consists entirely of double
trebles.--After the 40 plain stitches of the edge: 2 chain, 1 treble
on
the 1st plain stitch of the small square = turn the work: * 2 chain, 1
treble on the 2nd of the plain stitches, forming the edge of the
scallop
**; repeat 7 times from * to ** = *** 2 chain, 1 treble on the next
plain stitch = 2 chain, 1 treble on the next plain = repeat 4 times
from
***; and then 7 times from * to ** = 2 chain, 1 plain on the 4th
treble
of the square; 2 chain, 1 plain on the 3rd treble.
Work on, on the right side = **** 2 chain and 1 treble on the
preceding
treble as far as the 8th treble; after the 8th: ***** 10 chain, back
to
the 7th, and returning, join to the 7th treble = on the 10 chain: 16
plain, after the 16th draw the loop through the upper loop of the 8th
treble = ****** 2 chain, 1 treble, 2 chain, 1 treble, 10 chain,
return,

and fasten the chain stitches to the last treble but one = 6 plain, 1
picot, 2 plain, 1 picot, 6 plain and join as before ******* = Repeat
once from ***** to *******, then twice, from ***** to ******, then
from
**** to *****, as on the first side, only 1 treble less = then 1
treble
on the 4th plain stitch of the small square, 2 chain, 1 treble on the
7th plain stitch of the square, 2 chain, 1 treble on the 10th plain
stitch, 1 treble on the outside stitch, at the corner of the square, 2
chain, 1 plain on the last stitch of the leaf; 9 chain and so on, as
above described.
Having reached the second scallop, on the 2nd row of trebles, at the
sign ***, work: 2 chain, 1 treble to the left on the scallop just
finished, keeping the last loops of the treble on the needle, 1 double
treble to the right of
