1 Claim.
This invention relates to novel and improved
means for making a decorative design.
One of the objects of this invention is to pro
vide an improved shaping device or pattern which
5 is arranged and adapted to be fastened in the de
sired position on a piece of material, and then
has various colored layers of yarn looped there
Fig. dis a View of‘ another improvedshaping
device, for producing a different ?oral design than
that of Fig. 3.
Figs. 7, 8, 9, and 10 illustrate this invention
applied, respectively, to a circular ?gure, a letter,
a numeral, and a leaf.
These shaping devices or patterns are made of
over in making a decorative design, this device
thin sheet-like material, preferably of rust-proof
further comprising guide means for accurately
H O guiding the cutting instrument in cutting the
metal, such as copper, brass, aluminum or tin;
loops of yarn, in order to produce an evenly un
folding and symmetrical design.
Another object of this invention is to provide
a shaping device which is especially arranged and
15 adapted to be ?rmly secured in the desired posi
tion on the piece of material, so that the device
will not move out of this position while the yarn
is being looped over the device in making the
decorative design.
Another object of this invention is to provide
these shaping devices in sets of differently formed
devices or patterns, whereby a variety of deco
rative designs, such as ?oral designs, geometric
designs, ?gures, letters, etc., can be quickly and
easily made on a piece of suitable material, such
as cloth, paper, composition, and the like.
A further object of this invention is to provide
an improved method in conjunction with this
improved means, for making an ornamental de
3 O sign with accuracy and with ease and without
requiring any special training or skill for making
the same.
These and various other objects and advantages
are attained with this invention, as will become
apparent from the following description, taken
in connection with the accompanying drawing in
which the invention is shown in its preferred
form of construction, it being understood that
Various other arrangements and forms may be
40 resorted to for carrying out the objects and pur
poses of this invention.
In the drawing:

shaping device in a ?oral form, secured upon a
45 piece of material preparatory to making the deco
rative design thereon.

gressive steps involved in the method of making
this decorative design.

also of celluloid, ivory, hard rubber, and the like. 0
I also prefer to provide them in sets, each set
containing several diiferent shaped devices, as
indicated by the several devices illustrated in
the drawing. These devices generally include rel“
atively slender arms or branch portions over 15
which the yarn is looped in securing it upon the
piece of material for making the design.
In Figs. 1, 2, and 4 is illustrated a shaping de~
vice H which is of thin sheet-like material and
includes four arms l2 curving outwardly from
vits central part 83. It is adapted for making a
?oral design.
A guide groove in the form of a depressed chan
nel M is provided on each arm, extending from
a point near the end of the arm to said central 25
part l3, and thisv groove is positioned along the
center line longitudinally of the arm, whereby
to guide the point of the scissors or cutting in
strument exactly along the center line of the arm
while the loops of yarn are being cut. The previ- 0" o
ously proposed shaping devices lacked such guide
channels, and thus induced the ?nished designs
to be made unsymmetrical.
A small opening I5 is provided adjacent the end
of one or more of these arms, thru which thread 35
I6 is stitched for securing the device in the exact
position where it is desired onthe piece of ma-v
terial ll, so that the shaping device will not shift ~
or move out of place while the yarn is‘ being
looped over the ?rst arm at the beginning of the 40
loop-forming operation, as is the case with de
vices of this kind heretofore known. An open~
ing it may also be provided in the central part
[3, adapted to receive threads !9 in holding this
device on the piece .of material.
Concerning the method of making the decora
tive design in accordance with this invention, as
indicated by several steps shown in Fig. 2 of the
drawing, the yarn 2| of a certain color is ?rst
looped over the arm I2, after the device has been 50
secured with stitching IS in the desired position
on the material, as outlined above. The ends
of the loops are stitched thru the piece of mate
rial, at one side of arm l2, as best shown in Fig.
4, and are then brought back over the arm and
' 2,120,687
stitched in the material at the opposite side of
said arm. This is repeated until an entire layer
of this color of yarn covers the arm, as indicated
at l2’ at the lower left-hand side of Fig. 2.
A layer of yarn 22 of a different color than
said layer 2| is then looped over said ?rst layer,
as indicated in Fig. 4 and at the upper left-hand
corner of Fig. 2. This provides a design of two
colors when completed. If more colors are de
sired in the design, then a further layer or layers
of different colored yarn will be applied over
