This eBook from the Gutenberg Project consists of approximately 227 pages of information about The Ladies' Work-Book.

Each of the rows in this collar, large and small, are done separately, beginning with the circle in the centre, and making the six leaves round it.  Each rose is to be joined to the others, where it is indicated in the engraving, and at the point of two of the petals of the largest are three small loops, which serve to connect it with the edge.  All the sets of roses required for the length of the collar being done, the barred edge follows, the trefoils being worked on it, where they occur, and the roses being joined to it in their proper places.  On this line, another of alternate close and open squares is done, and then a point edging, similar to one already given in this volume.  The ground, of chains, worked back in slip-stitch with occasional picots, is to be done when forming the band for the neck.  The collars should be worked a little larger than the engraving.
