Centerpiece Pattern in Baby Irish Crochet from 1912

This pattern is from needlecraft November 1912 page 30.
This pattern was originally drafted by Mrs. E. W. Walker. I am not changing it from the original text so if it looks funny it is the way patterns were written about 100 years ago.

Make a chain of 8 stitches, join.

  1. (Chain 6, fasten with 1 double in ring) 5 times.
  2. A single under 5 chain, chain 3 fro a treble, 5 trebles under same chain, (chain 3, 6 trebles in next loop) 4 times, chain 3 and join to top of 3 chain.
  3. Chain 3, a treble in each treble and 3 under 3 chain all around, join.
  4. Chain 4, miss 3 trebles and fasten between next 2; repeat around, joining last chain where 1st started.
  5. Slip-stitch to center of 4 chain, * chain 6, fasten under next 4 chain; repeat.
  6. Slip-stitch to center of 6 chain, * chain 6, fasten under next 6 chain: repeat.
  7. Under each loop of 6 chain make 1 double, 7 trebles and 1 double. This row completes a wheel which serves as a very pretty medallion for shirtwaists, combined with embroidery, or it may be used in a variety of ways for which such a wheel is suitable.
  8. slip-stitch to center of 1st scallop, * (chain 9, fasten back in 6th stitch from needle to form a picot) twice, chain 3, fasten in center of next scallop; repeat from * around
  9. Slip-stitch to center of 1st picoted chain, * (chain 9 picot) twice, chain 3, fasten in top of loop between next 2 picot; repeat around, joining last chain where 1st started.
  10. Slip-stitch to center of 1st loop, * (chain 9, picot) 3 times, chain 3 fasten in center of next loop; repeat around, joining where 1st chain started.
  11. slip-stitch to 2d picot ( or, if preferred, the thread may be fastened off and joined in at the place designated), chain 4 a double treble in same picot, keeping top loops of each on hook and working off together, chain 3, 2 double trebles,worked off together, in same picot, * chain 12, 2 double trebles in picot at top of next loop, chain 3, 2 double trebles in same picot, always working the groups of double trebles off together, repeat from * around, chain 12 join to top of 1st group.
  12. NOTE from Sunshine: I do not know if there is a row 12 or if the numbering was off as all the pattern was intact no rips or any thing. It just went from 11 to 13 with no 12. So I hope the pattern works, it looks to be all there.
  13. Chain 5, * miss1, a treble in next stitch, chain 2; repeat from * around and join to 3d of 5 chain.
  14. Chain 7, miss 1 space, fasten in next; repeat.

Made in No. 90 linen thread, this gives a centerpiece about 15 inches in diameter, if worked rather closely. Coarser thread would, of course, result in a much larger piece, and there is such a difference in methods of working that it is quiet impossible to state the exact size of an article, even though the same number of thread is used by two workers. It must be understood, too, that if one does her work tightly more chain-stitches are required than if loosely done. These variations every experienced crocheter understands and makes allowances for.

Except for the red part above typed as written in 1912.
