Cast on 48 stitches: knit 20 rows in double knitting of geranium, then 12 rows of the grey, 12 of the geranium, 12 of the grey, and so on, till the end; then knit 20 rows, as at the first, with the geranium, and finish with the following fringe:—Cast on 8 stitches; make a stitch by keeping the wool at the back, seam 2 stitches together, pass the wool round the pin, seam 2 together, pass the wool round, seam 2 together; continue in this manner, remembering to make a stitch at the beginning of each row, till sufficient fringe is done; then cast off 4 stitches, pull the other needle out, and ravel the depth of the 4 stitches out, and sew on the fringe at each end.
