Donkey Pattern

Donkey Pattern

Pattern includes donkey motif A, 6 x 6⅜ inches; guitar motif B, 4¾ x 4⅝ inches; tent motif C, 4⅝ x 4⅝ inches and flower D, 1½ x 2¾ inches. A chart for placing the colors is also included in the pattern.

Mexican motifs give a gay and colorful air to table linens—and they are quite the vogue in decorative embroidery. As shown in the illustration, they are smart used on a lunch cloth, curtains and towels. The motifs are also suitable for lunch sets, runners, pillows, etc. The small flowers are for napkins. The design is entirely in cross-stitch and the crosses are 8 to the inch, suitable for six-strand cotton. The colors used for working are dark gray, light gray, dark green, light green, red, dark blue, light blue, yellow, orange, black, dark brown, light brown and purple.

HOW TO USE DESIGN—A 36, 45 or 54-inch lunch cloth trimmed with four motifs as illustrated is very effective. Two donkey motifs A, one guitar motif B and one tent motif C were used on the cloth. Motifs A are shown on the curtains and motifs B on the towels. A lunch set consisting of a centerpiece and four place mats would be very effective trimmed with these designs. The place mats, finished size 11 x 15 inches, may be trimmed with motifs B, placing one motif in the upper left hand corner of each mat. The centerpiece, 11 inches wide and the desired length, may be trimmed with motifs A, placing one at each end. Napkins trimmed with the small flowers D will complete the set. A 12 or 14-inch square pillow trimmed with motif A would be charming.

TO EMBROIDER—Follow the chart for placing the colors. Six-strand cotton—four strands in the needle—is used for the work. The entire design is worked in cross stitch. The most satisfactory results are obtained when the crosses touch as shown in the detail. Follow chart in the pattern for placing the colors.

Flower #1 Chart Pattern

Flower #1 Chart Pattern

Pattern includes 2 designs A, 3¼ x 21 inches; 2 of B, 3⅛ x 21 inches; 2 of C, 3½ x 21 inches, and scallops for the back of each design. A chart for placing the colors is also included.

It's nice to vary plain linens with handmade sets, and with these designs, towels and pillow cases can be effectively trimmed. The edges may be finished with contrasting borders or with crochet. The designs are 21 inches wide and can be adapted to narrower or wider widths. To make the design narrower, cut it off evenly at both ends. To make it wider, extend the end scallops with a pencil. The crosses in the designs are 10 to the inch, suitable for six-strand cotton. The chart enclosed in the pattern lists the colors used in each design.

SUGGESTED MATERIALS—Plain linen or fine smooth huck toweling may be used for towels, and contrasting linen or cotton with a linen finish for the borders. Pillow case tubing is suggested for the pillow cases, and contrasting percale, gingham or chambray for the borders. If finishing edge with crochet, use No. 50 or 60 mercerized crochet cotton and steel crochet hook No. 11 or 12.

DESIGN FINISHED WITH CROCHETED EDGE—The illustration shows design C used a crocheted edge. Designs A and B may be finished in the same way, if desired.

CROCHETED BORDER—As a foundation for the crochet, run a row of fine machine stitching along the stamped line forming the scallops. Then run a second row of stitching as close as possible to the first row. Press stitching flat. Cut away material at outer edge, cutting ⅛ inch beyond the machine stitching. Work over the edge (covering the stitching) with single crochet, making a picot every half inch.

TO EMBROIDER—Six-strand cotton (four strands in the needle) should be used for the work. Follow the chart for placing the colors. The stitches are cross stitch and lazy daisy stitch. In working the cross stitch, be sure the crosses touch, as shown in the detail.

The pineapple has traditionally symbolized hospitality and good luck. Artists and craftsmen have turned that auspicious fruit into a popular design motif; none more so than crocheters, who have featured the pineapple in doilies, tablecloths, bedspreads and many other decorative items. By popular demand, here is a completely new volume of pineapple patterns, 32 elegant, enduringly fashionable designs from thread-company pamphlets published over 30 years ago. From this pineapple treasury, experienced and novice crocheters will find projects to challenge their skills.

All stitches used in this book are explained and diagrammed; general instructions, abbreviations, conversion charts for stitches and hooks and a Metric Conversion Chart supplement the patterns, each of which has step-by-step directions.
