TATTING AND CROCHET.
MLLE. RIEGO DE LA BRANCHARDIÈRE.
SIMPKIN, MARSHALL, AND CO.,
AND ALL BERLIN WAREHOUSES.
Rules and Explanation of Terms.
The following Designs
are formed by a very simple combination of Tatting and
Crochet, the more elaborate style of both Works being
avoided, so that any Lady with a knowledge of the first
rules of each Art will be able to accomplish the
patterns without the least difficulty, the Stars and
Diamonds being made in Tatting and afterwards worked
round with loops of chain Crochet.
The numerous purposes to
which the work can be applied far exceed the limits of
this Book, as it admits of being made in every material.
The Stars have a good effect for spotting and trimming
Dresses, and, when worked in black or white Silk, are
suitable for Cloak and Bonnet Trimmings. For
Antimacassars and Doyleys, white and colored Cotton can
be substituted for the Gold and Wool; most of the
Designs are adapted for Church Needlework.
The Gold Tatting Twine can be obtained in two
qualities; the least expensive should be used for
Doyleys and Antimacassars, but for Church
Needlework, or Collars and Sleeves, the better make
is most suited...............
