Curtain Pull Pattern #971

Materials: Clark's O.N.T. Knitting and Crochet Cotton. About 50 yds. are required for the pair of curtain pulls.
Clark's O.N.T. or J. & P. Coats Six Strand, 1 skein each of 3 contrasting colors referred to as A, B and C.
Milward's steel crochet hook No. 5.


With Knitting and Crochet Cotton make a chain 24 inches long. Fasten and break off. Cut a cardboard 4½ inches square. Place chain across cardboard for ties. Then wind 2 strands of same material around cardboard 75 times. Break off. Pick up tie ends and tie securely (this is top of curtain pull). Remove cardboard. Wind color A 3 times around previous piece and 1 inch down from top; then tie (neckline). Cut lower edges of material and divide the strands evenly into 4 sections. Wind color A around 2 outside sections, 1½ inches down from neckline (arms). Finish other 2 sections in same manner, 2½ inches down from neckline (legs). Wind color A around both legs 1 inch down from neckline (waistline). With color A make 4 satin sts, each ¼ inch apart, down center front for buttons. Then make 2 satin stitches for mouth and 1 satin st for nose. With color B make a cross stitch for eyes. With color C make short and long stitches for hair. With the 2 ends of chain together, make 4 knots at equal distances apart (see illustration). Sew ends together.


Work as for Boy, but wind 2 strands of thread around cardboard 100 times (instead of 75 times). Form neckline as for Boy. Cut lower edges of material and divide the strands evenly into 6 sections. Then make arms, legs and waistline as for Boy. The remaining 2 sections are cut 1 inch shorter than legs, thus forming skirt. Embroider and finish off as for Boy.
