Today's needleworkers who admire the time-honored art of filet crochet - forming lacy geometric patterns on a mesh background - will welcome this treasury of hard-to-find designs from the heyday of crocheting.

Twenty-six beautiful filet crochet designs published in now rare American thread- company leaflets of the 1930's and 40's are reprinted in this unique and useful volume. You'll find delicate florals and foliates, birds, and rich geometric motifs in patterns ranging from simple doilies and luncheon place mats to classic tea cloths, decorative pillows, table runners, sumptuous special-occasion tablecloths and elaborately detailed bedspreads.

Choose from Eagle and Motto Runner, Peacock Buffet Scarf, Stepping Stones Bedspread, Aristocrat Tablecloth, Filet Flower Pillow and other exquisite designs - all pictured in clear photographs. Easy-to-follow instructions covering materials, stitches and measurements, plus stitch diagrams and a metric conversion chart make it easy to crochet beautiful filet projects.
