Coats and Clark #138 Priscilla Edgings

Patterns #433, 434, 435, 436 of pgs. 22-23, 27



Many vintage patterns are in the public domain now. These four are presented courtesy of Coats and Clark, Inc.



They are all dainty and decorative but #436 presents a challenge to modernize into a one pass pattern.

Suggested method of work.

Pattern #433.

Using needle and ball or shuttle and ball or two shuttles, thread beads first if they are to be used.

R 4 - 4 - 4 - 4 clr rw. (Note this center picot will have two joins made to it later.)

CH 6 - 14 rw

*R 8 + (join to picot of first ring) 8 clr rw

CH 14 - 6 rw

R 4 - 4 + (join to same picot) 4 - 4. DNRW.

CH 4 - 4 DNRW

R 4 - 4 - 4 - 4 clr rw

CH 6 + (join to picot of previous chain) 14 rw

Repeat from * from desired length.



Questions?

1. When a picot is to be used for multiple joins, it may need to be larger. For a tight join make it petite.

2. Adjust the second and additional rings by sliding so there are evenly space on the picot.
3. DNRW before and after that small chain changes the direction in which it curves.

Suggested method of work.

Pattern #434.

Using needle and ball or shuttle and ball or two shuttles, thread beads first if they are to be used.

These three ring clusters are mirror images of each other.

Begin with the right side cluster with the ring following the shortest chain.

*R 11 - 8 - 3 clr DNRW. Leave no bare thread space.

R 3 + (join to last picot of first ring) 8 - 8 - 3 clr. DNRW Leave no space.

R 3 + (join to last picot of second ring) 8 - 11 clr rw.



CH 17 + (join to picot of previous ring) 18 rw

R 8 - 3 - 11 clr rw

CH 17 rw, + (join to picot of previous ring)



R 3 + (join to second picot of previous ring) 8 + (join across to middle picot of center ring of previous cluster)8 - 3 clr DNRW Leave no space.

R 3 + (join to last picot of previous ring) 8 - 11 clr rw

CH 10 rw.

Repeat from * for desired length.



Questions?

1. The picot join between the first and last rings should not be too large.
But the join between two sets of cluster should not strain the picot.

2. The DNRW between the rings of the first cluster (right side) will keep any gaps of thread from forming for a tight join.

Enjoy!
