Crocheted Basket : This pattern contains directions to crochet the basket shown. A sweet basket, great to place on the front entry with potpourri, or perhaps a small ivy plant. The basket, which will stand 13" high has a pretty lace border, a doily type base and a handle perfect for threading a ribbon though. It is worked in pretty shell stitches.
This is a Mail Order pattern, purchased through newspapers and catalogs. This pattern was marketed as Anne Cabot 2937. The newspaper description: "An everyday table becomes more inviting when it is attractively adorned with a lovely crocheted basket filled with pretty flowers, such as shown here".
