When completed, table cloth measures about 54 x 72 inches (18 x 24 blocks). 3-inch square blocks are made individually and joined to one another on the last round, as explained later.

 
First Block. Starting at center, ch 8, join with sl st to form ring.

 1st rnd: 16 s c in ring. 

2nd rnd: Ch4 (to count as d c and ch-l), * d c in next s c, ch 1. Repeat from * around. Join last ch-1 with sl st to 3rd st of ch-4 first made (16 sps). 

3rd rnd: Ch 3, d c in same st as sl st, * ch 4, skip next d c, 2 d c in next d c. Repeat from * around. Join last ch-4 with sl st to 3rd st of ch-3 first made (8 groups of 2-d c). 

4th rnd: S1 st in next d c, ch 3 (to count as d c), * 2 d c in next loop, ch 5, skip 1st d c of next 2-d c group, d c in next d c of same group. Repeat from * around. Join last ch-5 with sl st to 3rd st of ch-3 first made. 

5th rnd: S1 st in next dc, ch3 (to count as dc), dc in next dc, 2dc in next loop, * ch 6, skip 1st d c of next d c-group, d c in each of next 2 d c of same group, 2 d c in next loop. Repeat from * around. Join last ch-6 with sl st as before. 

6th rnd: S1 st in next d c, ch 3 (to count as d c), d c in each of next 2 d c, 2 d c in next loop, * ch 7, skip 1st d c of next d c-group, d c in each of next 3 d c of same group, 2 d c in next loop. Repeat from * around. Join last ch-7 with sl st as before. 

7th, 8+h and 9th rnds: Continue in this manner, always skipping the 1st d c of each d c-group and making 2 increases in each d c-group, also on 7th rnd making ch-8 loops; on 8th rnd, ch-9 loops; on 9th rnd, ch-10 loops (8 d c in each group on 9th rnd). Join with sl st. 

10th rnd: S1 st in each of next 2 d c, ch 3 (to count as d c), d c in each of next 5 d c, * ch 6, s c in next loop, ch 6, skip 1st 2 d c of next d c-group, d c in each of next 6 d c, ch 10, s c in next loop, ch 10, skip 1st 2 d c of next d c-group, d c in each of next 6 d c, repeat from * around. Join with sl st. 

11th rnd: S1 st in each of next2dc, ch3, d c in each of next 3 d c, * ch 7, s c in next loop, s c in following loop, ch 7, skip 1st 2 d c of next d c group, d c in each of next 4 d c, ch 6, 4 d c in next loop, ch 10, 4 d c in next loop, ch 6, skip 1st 2 d c of next dc-group, dc in each of  next 4 dc. Repeat from * around. Join with sl st. 

12th rnd: S1 st in each of next 2 d c, ch 3, d c in next d c, * ch 11, s c between the 2-s c of previous rnd, ch 11, skip 1st 2 d c of next d c-group, d c in each of next 2 d c, ch 7, 4 d c in next loop, ch 7, 4 d c in next loop, ch 11, 4 d c in same loop (this is corner), ch 7, 4 d c in next loop, ch. 7, skip 1st 2 d c of next d c-group, d c in each of next 2 d c. Repeat from * around. Join with sl st. Break off.


Second Block. Work as for First Block to 11lth rnd incl. 

12th rnd: Sl st in each of next 2 d c, ch 3, d c in next d c, ch 11, s c between the 2-s c of previous rnd, ch 11, skip 1st 2 d c of next d c-group, d c in each of next 2 d c, ch 7, 4 d c in next loop, ch 7, 4 d c in following loop, ch 5, s c in corner loop of First Block (always keeping Right side of work on top), ch 5, 4 d c in same loop back on Second Block, ch 3, s c in next ch-7 loop of First Block, ch 3, 4 d c in next loop on Second Block, ch 3, s c in next loop on First Block, ch 3, skip 1st 2 d c of d c-group on Second Block and make d c in each of next 2 d c, ch 5, s c in next ch-11 loop on First Block, ch 5, s c between the 2-s c on Second Block, ch 5, s c in ch-11 loop on First Block, ch 5, skip 1st 2 d c of d c-group on Second Block and make d c in each of next 2 d c, ch 3, s c in next loop on First Block, ch 3, 4 d c in next loop back on Second Block, ch 3, s c in next loop on First Block, ch 3, 4 d c in next loop on Sec (rnd Block, ch 5, s c in corner loop on First Block, ch 5, 4 d c in same loop on Second Block, ch 7, 4 d c in next loop on Second Block. Continue this rnd as in First Block with no more joinings. Break off. Make 23 more blocks, joining each block to previous one as Second Block was joined to First Block, making a stripe of 24 blocks.


Make second stripe as follows:
First Block of Second Strip. Work as for Second Block of first stripe and join, as before, to First Block alongside of first stripe. Second Block. Work as before to ll th rnd incl. 

12th rnd: Work as for 12th rnd of previous blocks, but join to the two adjacent blocks and complete rnd. Work next 22 blocks of this stripe joining thus to adjacent two blocks. Make 16 more strips of blocks and join as before.


Edging. 1st rnd: Attach thread to ch-7 loop just before a corner, ch 11, s c in corner loop, ch 15, s c in same corner loop, * ch 11, s c in next loop. Repeat from * around, making a ch-15 loop at each corner as before. 

2nd rnd: S1 st in each of 3 ch sts of next loop, 5 s c in same loop, ch 7, d c in corner loop, ch 3, d c in same loop, ch 7, * 5 s c in next loop, ch 5, d c in next loop, ch 3, d c in same loop, ch 5. Repeat from · around, making corners as before. 

3rd rnd: S c in each of 4 s c of 5-s c group, ch 6, 4 s c in next loop, ch 6, d c in corner ch-3 sp, ch 3, d c in same sp, ch 6, 4 s c in next loop, * ch 6, s c in each of 4 s c of next 5-s c group, ch 6, d c in ch-3 sp, ch 3, d c in same sp. Repeat from * around, making corners as before. 

4th rnd: S c in each of 3 s c of 4-s c group, ch 7, s c in each of 3 s c of 3-s c group, ch 7, d c in corner ch-3 sp, ch 3, d c in same sp, ch 7, s c in each of 3 s c of 3-s c group, * ch 7, s c in each of 3 s c of 4-s c group, ch 7, d c in ch-3 sp, ch 3, d c in same sp. Repeat from * around, rnaking corners as before. 

5th rnd: S c in center s c of 3-s c group, ch 8, s c in center of next s c-group, ch 8, in corner ch-3 sp make 4 d c with a ch-5 p between d c's (3 p's), ch 8, s c in center of next s c-group, * ch 8, s c in center of next s c-group, ch 8, in next ch-3 sp make 4 d c with ch-5 between d c's. Repeat from * around, making corners as before. Break off.
