Materials

Number 50 crochet cotton and two steel knitting needles No 15 (1.75mm)

Gauge

Approximately 42 sts to 4 inches (10cm) over garter st on size 15 (1.75mm) needles.

Abbreviations

K = knit
p = purl
k2tog = knit 2 together
p2tog = purl 2 together
yo = yarn over
yo twice = yarn over twice
yo three times = yarn over three times
psso = pass slipped stitch(es) over the last stitch just worked
turn: turn your work and continue in the opposite direction. Note: Do not wrap before turning as the turns are meant to create a row of eyelets.

Pattern

A very satisfactory method of knitting a circular piece is employed in this handsome table set.

Stitches equal to the radius of the piece are cast on and the knitting is done back and forth, first from centre to circumference, then back to centre. Each odd row begins at the centre with sl 1. Each even row begins at circumference with a knitted stitch, and toward the centre a number of stitches are left unknitted on the left-hand needle. This number is always the same as the number of the row in hand. For example, at the end of the second row two stitches are left, at the end of the fourth row four stitches are left.

In the last row of the section, after 4 or 5 (whatever the number) are bound off, the stitches are all knit down to the centre and one begins with the first row again. The section is repeated a given number of times and the entire row is bound off at the last row of the last section. The edges are overcast together and with needle and thread the centre stitches are drawn close.
