Insertion measures 7 inches deep. Each pattern measures about 10½ inches wide, and requires about 300 yds. of thread.

Choose one of the following threads in White, size 80:
Clark's O.N.T. Mercerized Crochet.
J. & P. Coats Mercerized Crochet.

Starting at lower edge, make a chain (27 chain sts to 1 inch) to measure ⅓ longer than desired length. 1st row: D c in 4th ch from hook, d c in each ch across for desired length (the number of d c should be divisible by 282, plus 1). Cut off remaining chain. Ch 3, turn. 2nd row: D c in each d c across. Ch 5, turn. 3rd row: * Skip 2 d c, d c in next d c, ch 2. Repeat from * across (number of spaces should be divisible by 94). Ch 3, turn. 4th row: * D c in each of next 2 ch, d c in d c. Repeat from * across. Ch 5, turn. 5th row: Same as 3rd row. Ch 3, turn. 6th row: D c in each of next 2 ch, d c in next d c (1 bl); ch 2, d c in next d c (sp over sp); make 3 more sps, 7 bls, 12 sps, 3 bls, 9 sps, 7 bls, 4 sps, 1 bl, 4 sps, 7 bls, 9 sps, 3 bls, 12 sps, 7 bls, 4 sps (this completes 1 pattern).
