Crosses in Crochet. This pattern gives directions to crochet the crosses pictured. Each cross is simple made in bedspread cotton - in three sizes. The large cross measures 8-1/2 inches, the medium cross 7 inches and the small cross is 4-1/2 inches.
This is a Mail Order pattern purchased through newspapers and catalogs. The pattern was marketed as Martha Madison 1295. The description: A crocheted cross makes a lovely personal gift. Not only is it a reminder of prayer & sacrifice, but it is a constant memorial of the love and devotion of the giver--the one who cared enough to put this thought into needlework, just for you.
Sizes: If Bedspread Cotton is used, with #9 crochet-hook, the crosses will measure about 8-1/4-inches, 7-inches, and 4-inches, respectively, including the hanging loop.
For smaller; more dainty crosses, use finer thread and smaller hook. Experiment with odd bits of crochet-thread from your workbasket to find the kind which is best for your particular project. White, Cream, or Ecru is a good choice of color. 135 yards will make the set of three. Gold metallic thread or-plastic yarn (narrow) may be used for edgings.
