Crocheted Doily : This pattern contains directions for crocheting the doily shown. The doily, actual size not stated, is billed as a centerpiece, so I'd assume the size is, at a minimum 24 inches in diameter. It's a lovely piece, that's for sure. A large sunflower motif dominates the center, surrounded by bordered and scalloped edges.
This is a mail order pattern, purchased through newspapers and catalogs. This pattern was marketed as Peggy Roberts 2295 (Needlework Bureau), and later under the name of Anne Cabot. The newspaper description: "A giant size sunflower (24 inches in diameter) to crochet from glistening white thread! This centerpiece is sure to win compliments and enhance the tabletop it adorns". The pattern was featured in the Anne Cabot 1955 Needlework Album.
Materials: 750 yds. Mercerized Crochet Cotton, Size 30; Steel Crochet Hook No. 11 or 12, Standard Size.
