TOILET SACHET.

MATERIALS.—­Three-quarters of a pound of Brooks’ Great Exhibition Prize Goat’s-head Knitting Cord No. 16; and tapered indented Crochet Hook, No. 20.  A yard of pink or blue ingrain gingham.

This article, made in the form of an envelope, is intended to hold the night-dress and cap, and lies on the pillow during the day, forming an elegant appendage to the drapery.  The lining should, of course, be of a tint to suit the rest of the furniture, and may be of silk, if preferred; but, as gingham will wash with the cotton, it is less troublesome.  The sachet is worked in crochet, the edging in knitting, for which the receipt will afterwards be given.

Make a chain of 285 stitches, with three more, which you will twist; miss these three, and work in d.c. along the row.  Break off at the end.

2nd row:  d.c., working on the third of the three chain at the beginning of the row, as if it were a d.c. stitch.

Observe, that as there are bits of thread left at the ends of each row, they should be worked in at the next, which may easily be done, as there are two close squares at the beginning and end of every row.

3rd:  2 close squares; then open squares till you come to within 7 d.c. of the end.  Finish with 2 close squares.
