Welcome to VTNS (Vintage Textile and Needlework Sellers) Fan Freebie Friday where we share all types of vintage needlework patterns.
Ruffled doilies were populst back in the 1950s when this pattern was published. The booklet by Coats & Clark’s is nothing but Ruffled Doily patterns.
They are compared to lace, “Frills of frothy lace for the delicate decoration of your occasional tables.” Oh my, what is an occasional table? Every table in my house is used more than occasionally.
Funny aside, this 17¼ inch ruffled lace doily would compliment any table, no problem.
Made using Mercerized Crochet Cotton and a No. 9 Steel Crochet Hook the pretty poinsettia in the middle makes it perfect for the holidays.
