Edging for an Altar Cloth

I’m attempting to create an edging for an altar cloth using a pattern from 1915.  It’s a crocheted edging, and I know the stitches required to make the edging so no worries there.

The issue lies with the instructions of the pattern.  It’s in British English from that time period.  This means, some words are hard to translate into modern terms.  The other issue is that this edging uses the same pattern as another edging minus one of the motifs.  This means I have to decipher where to omit the one motif so it looks like the picture.

Long story short, I’m starting to get a bit stressed with this project.  What should have been an afternoon’s work is turning out to be so much more!

I’m also developing a strong dislike for this edging.  I know I won’t be doing it again for a long, long time – once I figure it out.

Just thought I’d rant a bit to clear my head.  Carry on, there’s nothing to see here.

See you on the flipside and don’t forget your towel and sonic screwdriver – I hear aliens are among us!!
