Materials: Clark's O.N.T. Knitting and Crochet Cotton, 2 balls of a light color and 2 balls of a dark color.
Milward's Casein knitting pins, 1 pair No. 2 (2¾ mm. size).
Milward's steel crochet hook No. 1.
1½ yds. of tape.

Gauge: 6 sts make 1 inch; 10 rows make 1 inch.

Starting at back edge, with 3 strands of light color, cast on 12 sts. 1st and 2nd rows: * K 1, p 1. Repeat from * across. 3rd and 4th rows: * P 1, k 1, repeat from * across. Repeat these 4 rows, increasing 1 st at end of each row until there are 52 sts on needle, then 1 st at both ends of every 6th row 6 times (64 sts). Now decrease 1 st at both ends of every 7th row 5 times, every other row 5 times, and every row thereafter until 12 sts remain. Bind off.

Border. With 2 strands of dark color, make a chain as long as the measurement around outer edge of cover, omitting back edge; turn. 1st row: S c in 3rd ch from hook, s c in each ch across. Ch 2, turn. 2nd row: S c in each s c across. Sew foundation chain along outer edge of cover (omitting back). Then repeat 2nd row for 2 inches, making increases where necessary to keep work flat and back edge straight. Hereafter work straight until border measures 3 inches, then work as follows: * ch 4, sl st in 4th row on wrong side and 4 sts to left, ch 4, sl st in 6th st of last st at top edge. Repeat from * around, except back edge. Break off. Run tape through casing.

Trimming Motif. With dark color, work as for Towel Edging Pattern, No. 8187, making ch-20 instead of ch-25 for vertical strips, and ch-8 instead of ch-10 for triangles.
