Messrs. Walter Evans and Co.'s knitting cotton, 3-thread, No. 30.
This nightcap is very simple and
practical. It consists of two similar three-cornered pieces, sewn
together so as to form a double triangle; the point of the triangle is
turned back, as seen in illustration, and fastened on the lower half
of the same. The cap is edged with a lace; a similar lace covers the
seam between both parts of the cap.
The pattern is worked with crochet
cotton over a mesh measuring three-quarters of an inch round. Begin
each half in the corner; cast on 2 stitches, and work backwards and
forwards, increasing 1 stitch at the end of every row, till the number
of stitches is 60.
Then sew both halves together, and
trim the cap and strings (the latter are worked as on the cap No. 343)
with the following lace: work 2 rows of open-work treble stitches--the
treble stitches are divided by 1 chain--then work 1 row of double,
always working 4 double round the chain stitches which divide 2 treble
in the preceding row, or with netted edging.
