6 eh., miss 3d.c, 13 d.c, 6ch., miss 3 d.c. then d.c. to end of round.
Work 16 rounds of d.c, then work another row on top of the last one to give a firm edge.

Thread ribbon through 2 d.c. at left and cross over to right where secure with Sylko.
His Knickers.-Make 36 eh., and join round, do 15 rounds of d.c, then si. st. to the four middle st. of round to form legs. Do one row of d.c. round each leg. Make a crochet chain to thread' through top of knickers and tie.
