3rd: Plain 1 in the centre of the first 3 ch. of last round, ch. 3, work 1 treble at the top of the first treble of last round, ch. 2, work 1 treble at the top of the next treble of last round; you repeat all round the leaf with 3 ch., opposite the 3 ch. of last round, and 2 treble at the top of the 2 treble of last round, with 2 ch. between them, working both sides to correspond, turn back.
4th: Ch. 4 and plain 1 in each lot of the chain of last round, fasten off, which completes the leaf; you then work a stalk to each leaf as follows: ch. 5, work 1 treble in the centre of the chain round between the edge and the centre, work 1 treble on the other side, the same turn back, and work the 5 chains plain, fasten off, which completes the stalk; after working the number of each portion required and joining them together, as shown in the illustration, you work a band for the neck-part of the collar as follows:—
Work a few plain at the end, then ch. 10, and work 1 treble where it requires a treble, and a double where it requires a double, and a plain in the centre of the stalks and rounds as you see the stitches in the engraving, so as to make it lie to the shape of the neck.
2nd row: Ch. 2, miss 2, work 1 treble, repeat to the end, turn back.
3rd: Ch. 2, work 1 treble at the top of the treble of last row, repeat to the end, turn back.

This collar is begun by making the open hem work thus: 2 ch., miss 3, 1 s.d.c., 2 ch., miss 1 s.d.c., X 2 ch., miss 1, 1 d.c., X 3 times, then 2 ch., miss 1, 1 s.t.c., then use the t.c., and finally the long t.c. for the widest parts, and gradually decreasing to s.c. at the end. On the inner side of this, do as many half-circles as the engraving indicates: thus, 1 s.c. 1 s.d.c. 1 d.c., 2 t.c., 1 d.c., 1 s.d.c., 1 s.c.; the roses near the neck may then be worked and joined to these circles in their places. The oblong flowers are then done, beginning in the centre, with a chain, worked in s.c., a round of d.c. on this, and a succession of loops all round. Join these flowers in their places; then make the roses, working from the engraving which is the best guide, joining these to each other, and to the oblong flowers, and finally working the neck with the dotted bars as seen in the engraving.
