Beautiful crocheted items that enhanced interior furnishings generations ago are once again in the needlecraft spotlight. For this outstanding collection of classic crochet patterns, needlework authority Mary Carolyn Waldrep has selected for today's needleworker a variety of attractive designs that first appeared in now-rare thread-company instruction leaflets of the 1930s through the '50s.

Included in The Crocheters Treasure Chest are patterns for a lovely tablecloth with a rose motif, a floral-patterned refreshment set (comprising coasters and a larger doily), an elegant series of wide edgings displaying scallops, florals and filet mesh; a tea-cart cloth with a lacy petal design; a magnificent "Cameo" bedspread; the "Chrysanthemum," a charming tablecloth composed of delicate medallions beautiful enough to complement any table arrangement; and dozens of other eye-catching pieces.

A complete list of necessary materials accompanies each pattern, while more than 65 illustrations and detailed, row-by-row instructions guide beginning and advanced needle workers through each step of the crocheting process. Here's a rich anthology of heirloom-quality designs that crocheters are sure to find inspirational and irresistible.
