Crochet - More Vintage Edgings


From the American Thread Company, published in 1949. Two pages of instructions on how to make the edgings shown on the cover are on my Flickr account.

If I seem to be on a bit of a vintage edging and doily kick recently, it's because I stumbled across a cache of 40's and 50's thread company booklets that I had collected at yard sales and auctions several years ago. You're going to see a lot more, I'm afraid.

As long as there is some tatted items, BRING IT ON. How is the Queen's diet going, or do I dare not ask?

Her Majesty's waist-line has not noticeably diminished but her crankiness quotient is a tad higher, Sam. Thanks for asking.
