Make a Queen Anne's Lace or Spanish Mantilla tablecloth for your dining room table, or make placemats in the Modern Rustic or Shepherdess design for your dinette - this book tells you how to make 90 different tablecloths and placemats, and all will look stunning no matter which you choose to make. Your finished article will have the look of lace, and it will be something that you will be proud to own, and even prouder to have made yourself.

Choose from such patterns as Banquet Beauty, Candleglow, Mountain Laurel, Grand Manner, Governor's Lady, Lilac Time, Horn of Plenty, Lady Bountiful, Spring Song, Crystal Web, Trellis of Flowers, Chatelaine, Mosaic, Tudor and many more. Each pattern has complete instructions, a photograph of the finished article, and indications for amount of yarn, crochet hook, and gauge. There are also some photographs of close-up detail—making 116 photographs in all - as well as 39 diagrams and 18 other illustrations.

Since most of the projects are tablecloths, and most of the tablecloths are made by crocheting and joining together small motifs, you can use this book to make a variety of other objects: ponchos, scarves, purses, mantillas, etc. Whatever you choose to make, you cannot go wrong in your choice of pattern. All are distinctive and strikingly beautiful.
