Once upon a time, delicate crocheted articles graced every home. Under a lamp, over a table, on a pillow edge, dress collar or sleeve. . . throughout a woman's house and wardrobe they were lacy doilies and trims. The long-lost or forgotten patterns for these lovely items are now available here for the avid crocheters of today. Each of five old-fashioned technique- motifs, filet crochet, Irish crochet, trims, and insertions- are taught in detail. With just a bit of initiative you are ready to design your own projects, and there are dozens of beautiful black-and white photographs of existing works from private and public collections to inspire you. If you prefer, you may follow any of the dozens of step-by-step, illustrated projects. Choose among collars, curtains, bedspreads, aprons, guest towels, jewelry items, hankies, pillows, pillowcases, and more. Styles range from the traditional to the more modern geometric designs. There is even a filet crochet design for a youngster's teddy bear top. The fine cotton thread and steel hooks needed to make the projects are readily available in any needlework-supply center or dime store and, whether you are an expert crocheter or a beginner, there are projects to match your level of proficiency. Enjoy creating your own heirlooms, dressing up a tired blouse by trimming cuffs and collar, or save a soiled tablecloth by crocheting an insert. . . the possibilities are endless! If you want to learn the craft of crochet in it original forms and add hints of the graceful charm and elegance of yesterday to your surroundings at the same time, Old-Fashioned Crochet is tailor-made for you.
