Knit a counterpane based on the one made by First Lady Grace Coolidge. The pattern is worked from corner to corner, with a garter-stitch border edging the increases and decreases.

A bedspread-sized work made of many units of this motif would be a significant undertaking; however, the motif is appropriate for use in smaller articles. For example, four squares seamed together would make a striking front for a throw pillow, while a larger collection of squares would make a lovely pillow sham.
