1st round: Make 40 s c in ring. Join with sl st. 

2nd round: Ch 8 (to count as d c and ch-5), * skip 4 s c, d c in next s c, ch 5. Repeat from * around. Join last ch-5 with sl st to 3rd st of ch-8 first made (8 sps). 

3rd round: Ch 3 (to count as d c), 6 d c in next sp, * ch 2, 7 d c in next sp. Repeat from * around. Join last ch-2 with sl st to 3rd st of ch-3 first made. 

4th round: Ch 3, d c in each of next 6 d c, * ch 3, d c in each of next 7 d c. Repeat from * around. Join as before. 

5th round: S1 st in next d c, ch 3, d c in each of next 4 d c, * ch 5, s c in next sp, ch 5, skip 1 d c, d c in each of next 5 d c. Repeat from * around. Join last ch-5 with sl st as before. 

6th round: S1 st in next d c, ch 3, d c in each of next 2 d c, * ch 5, s c in next loop, 4 d c in s c between the 2 loops, s c in next loop, ch 5, skip 1st d c of next d c-group, d c in each of next 3 d c. Repeat from * around. Join last ch-5 with sl st. 

7th round: Sl st in next dc, ch3, dc in next dc, · ch 5, s c in next loop, 4 d c in next s c, s c in center of next 4-d c group, 4 d c in next s c, s c in next loop, ch 5, skip 1 d c of 3-d c group, d c in each of next 2 d c. Repeat from * around. Join as before. 

8th round: S1 st across to center of next loop, * ch 7, s c in center of next 4-d c group, 4 d c in next s c (which is between the 2 groups), s c in center of next 4-d c group, ch 7, s c in next loop, ch 7, skip 2 d c, s c in next loop. Repeat from * around. Join last ch-7 with sl st to base of 1st loop. 

9th round: S1 st across to center of loop, * ch 7, s c in center of next 4-d c group, ch 7, s c in next loop, ch 7, s c in next loop, ch 7, s c in next loop. Repeat from * around. Join as before. 

10th round: S1 st across to center of loop, * ch 7, s c in next loop. Repeat from * around. Join as before (32 loops). 

11th round: S1 st across to center of loop, * ch 4, s c in next loop, ch 4, 4 d c in next loop, ch 4, 4 d c in same loop, ch 4, s c in next loop, ch 4, s c in next loop. Repeat from * around. Join and break off. This completes one block.

Make 252 blocks.

To Join .Blocks: Place blocks in position (14 x 18 blocks).

With over-and-over stitches sew one side of one block (from ch-4 between d c-groups to ch-4 between next d c-groups) to corresponding side of the adjacent block (always having wrong side of work on top). 

Then fill in spaces left open by motifs as follows: 

Fill-in-Lace. 1st round: Attach thread to 3rd s c on one block (counting from right to left), * ch 9, skip joining of 2 blocks, s c in 1st s c on adjacent block, ch 9, skip next s c of same block, s c in next s c. Repeat from * around (8 loops in all). See stitch detail. 

2nd round: Sl st across to center of loop, * ch 9, s c in next loop. Repeat from * around. Join with sl st to base of 1st loop. 

3rd round: S1 st across to center of loop, ch 3, s c in next loop. Repeat from * around. 

4th rnd: 2 sc in each loop and 1 sc in each sc. Join and break off. Fill in all remaining spaces in same way,
