24th:  Entirely cerise, working 3 in 1 at all the 6 points.

25th:  White and cerise alternately, a single stitch of each, with 3 in 1 at the points.

26th:  All cerise, increasing, as before, at the corners.

This completes the centre of the mat.  Now cover six of the rings with the darkest cerise, 12 with the lightest, 12 with the second lightest, and 24 with white.  They are to be done in s.c.  The darkest are sewed in the centre of each side of hexagon, with a white at each side, and two more (joined together) above it.  The lightest cerise are placed at the points the two being joined together, and one to the mat.  These form the extreme points, and the other twelve are placed to connect the lightest rings with the white.  The short square bugles are threaded, with some of the beads, to form a cross in the centre of each of the white rings; the other rings have a cross of beads only.  All the rings are sewed together, and to the mat.

The elegant fringe round the edge is formed of the long steel bugles, connected with each other at the outer edge by a chain of 4 steel beads.  The needle is slipped down them to connect them with the rings, and a single bead is threaded at the base of each.  The side rings have 6 bugles each, placed at equal distances; the corners have 8; and 1 is placed where every two rings are joined.

This mat would be very beautiful if worked in white and shades of green, with gold beads and bugles.
