The newspaper description: "Company's coming, so out with the best bedspread, the dressers matching scarf, both crocheted this easy way. You'll have reason indeed to be proud of this lacy pair, to say nothing of a tea or dinner cloth, buffet or vanity set, all of which grow little to little as you crochet a simple medallion in humble thread".
