Border for Design for Antimacassars, Fichus, Darned Netting, Etc. from Tatting and Netting

This border, found on page 140 of Tatting and Netting, uses a #12 knitting needle for the small mesh stick and a 1/4" flat mesh stick for the large one.  The #12 knitting needle is equal to the 2 mm or 0 US.  If the edge is placed around a circular center, the  number of loops in the round before the border begins needs to be a multiple of 4.  If the edge is to be made going back and forth in rows, the number of loops before the edge is begun needs to be a multiple of 4 plus 1 (for example: 5, 9, 13, 21).
