Favorite Crochet Patterns Old and New Coats & Clark's Book 104 Doilies Tablecloths Runners

This booklet, No 104 by Coats & Clark's is titled Crochet Favorites -- Old and New.   It features a Collection of what was considered old and new back in 1959 ... That's more than 50 years ago !!!    And for those that still appreciate the beautiful intricacies of this type of crochet, these doilies, tablecloths and more, will remain beloved patterns.  

Let me show you what I'm talking about .....

Crochet Favorites, Old and New
Crochet Tablecloth Bedspread pattern book 104 from Coats Clarks
S-945 : Harvest Tablecloth takes center stage on the front cover.   It is made up of 4-1/2 inch wheat motifs to form a finished cloth measuring 63 x 83 inches.  

No 744 Star Wheel Placemat is made up of round 4 1/4 inch motifs.  This may be billed as a placemat, but it has other possibilities. 

Vintage Crochet Edging Pattern, Rose Petals
A-137 Rose Petals Handkerchief Edging to attach to an 11 /12 inch rolled edge.  This pattern is available as a free download.  

A-138 Laurels Chair Set - Stitch this for a classic chair set, or expand on the pattern and go for table runners or cloths.   It's quite an attractive motif.

No 7050 Queen Ann's Lace Tablecloth.  This piece is classic Coats & Clarks and close variations are found dating back to the 1920s.

S-393 Ripe Wheat Doily - a pretty and dramatic piece.   Substitute threads and needles to create sizes between 13 and 17-1/2 inches.

S- 815 Ripe Wheat Runner - a great compliment to the Ripe Wheat Doily above.  This is one where you also substitute threads and hook size to create a different sized runner.

Round Rose Cloth Filet Crochet Pattern
A-139 Bouquet of Roses - This large (20 inches in diameter) beauty is filet crochet. 

No 7144 Lucky Star is a pleasing motif runner measuring 13 1/2 x 40 1/2 inches.  

Vintage Enchantment Crochet Doily Pattern
A-140 Enchantment - This is a finely stitched Large Doily, measuring 19 1/2 inches in diameter.  

A-141 Silver Scroll Tatted Doily - This plain, but quite attractive piece is 12 inches square.  

Crocheted Rose Bower Bedspread Pattern in flower blocks
S-626 Rose Bower Bedspread graces the back corner.  It is made up of alternating Rose and Plain 6 inch motifs.   This piece would be on its way to heirloom. 

These lovely pictures represent all of the projects contained in this booklet.    I think they are all lovely, but have to admit that I'm exceptionally fond of the Enchantment Doily.    I've scanned the reworked these patterns to crisp clean quality and they are available in my shop, as indicated by the links under the pictures.

Hope you enjoyed the book review.  
Thanks for dropping by,
