ring work thirty-six trebles For the
second row make one treble 1 ?et ween

draw a stitch up under the chains of
four in the two preceding rows, chain
two more and make a group of twelve
trebles, and so on to the end of the
row. This will complete one of the
wheels. Twelve of these wheels are
required for the dolly. For the cen
ter of the dolly connect each of the
scallops that edge the wheels with a
chain of twelve. Fur the next row
crochet eighteen trebles on each of
these chains. For the next row turn
nnd mako one treble and two chain
between each of the two trebles of
the preceding row. The three other
rows are done exactly like the third,
fourth and fifth rows of the wheel.
The Wheels may bfl fitted for the out

An inexperienced crochet worker will
find this dolly u very easy affair to
make. The pattern merely repeats It
