This rich treasury of popular crochet designs, selected from vintage thread-company leaflets, includes 150 patterns favored by crocheters during the first half of the 20th century. Included are eye-catching designs for creating a host of attractive domestic accessories: tablecloths, bedspreads, doilies, edgings and other pieces. All designs are accompanied by a complete list of necessary materials, while detailed row-by-row instructions guide beginning and advanced needleworkers through each step of the crocheting process.

Choose from heirloom-quality patterns including lovely lace edgings that will bring a touch of glamour to table linen, bedcovers and the necklines of sweaters and blouses. You'll also find a simple yet elegant Main Line tablecloth, revealing a charming filet-crochet motif of floral and foliated designs, a splendid bedspread composed of dainty diamond- and octagon-shaped motifs and a wealth of other attractive patterns.
