Book 64 Flower Doilies

This book is in my Classic Category.   It an American Thread dating back to 1949.  It contains just 9 doily patterns, all crochet.  And, what wonderful doilies hey are!  These patterns are worked with crochet or knitting cottons.  Some patterns reference a variety of types/brands, with their corresponding needle size.  American Thread, as did the other material producers, issued pattern books in promotions of a specific threads.   In the case of these patterns, American Thread gave choices of 6 different threads popular in this time period ... All interchangeable, of course.    Enjoy the patterns !

Wouldn't you agree that there are some marvelous selections here ?   I think the Passion Flower Luncheon set is (as my sister would say), Stupendous.  I'd like to have a few dozen of those individual flowers to add to clothing.  I am also quite on the Pond Lily Doily.  It's not lacy or spectacular, but a solid piece of fiber art that would nicely offset almost every vase I own. 

I've restored patterns to bright and crisp PDF files, with the original pictures.   They are available in my shop (links under pictures) should you be interested.
