The finer sizes of Clark's 0. N. T. Mercerized Crochet make dainty edgings for a variety of uses.  They may be made in White, Ecru or any of the lovely, pastel shades.  For heavier effects use size 15 or 20.  Bath towel edgings are effectively made of J.& P. Coats Crochet Cord, Clark's 0. N. T. Knit-Crochet, and Clark's 0. N. T. "Brilliant," in White, Ecru or a variety of pastel colors.  Use Milward's steel crochet hooks No. 4 or 5 for heavier threads and No. 7 to 11 for finer sizes.
