Many crocheters have never lost their interest in hand-crocheted floral doilies - they just couldn't find the patterns. This book offers a wide selection of the most popular floral doily patterns ever created taken from various instruction booklets published some thirty years ago. These books are rare collectors' items and when one is occasionally offered for sale it sells for several times the cost of this entire collection.

Thirty-five different floral patterns include various sizes and kinds of doilies, luncheon sets, runners and centerpieces. Each pattern has complete instructions, indications of the amount of thread, proper crochet hook and gauge and a photograph of the finished doily. All the stitches used to make the doilies are explained in simple diagrams. Seven charts plus close-up shots of detail work and stitches.

Crocheters will welcome this rare collection of floral doilies, which can be used for dining tables, sideboards, end tables, dressers, furniture or sewn together for tablecloths, pocketbooks or curtains.
