The beautiful crochet designs in this collection were selected from rare, long-out-of-print thread company leaflets of the 1930s, 40s, and 50s, an era in which the art of crochet enjoyed enormous popularity in America. Now today's crocheters can choose from 42 of these popular motifs, ranging from intricate mesh squares to elegant snowflake medallions. Moreover, crocheters will find that, despite their elaborate beauty, the motifs in this book work up quickly and easily.

Row-by-row instructions and clearly detailed photographs take beginning and veteran crocheters through each step of the creative process. Perfect for adding a delicate accent to any interior setting, individual crocheted units can be combined to create exquisite home accessories: tablecloths, placemats, bedspreads, table scarves and more.
