Welcome to this Friday’s VTNS (Vintage Textile and Needlework Sellers) Fan Freebie!
This tatting pattern is from an article in The American Needlewoman magazine dated April 1924.
The medallion has four rings in the center and eight all around with picots on the outside edge. To me this could easily be a snowflake ornament once stiffened.
Here’s the scanned page of instructions:
To Download the Pattern Page: Right-Click the image and select either “save target as” or “save link as” depending on what browser you are using or simply click on it and save or print.
If you do decide to use this tatting pattern as a snowflake ornament, be sure to read this post on how to stiffen crocheted items, Decorate for Thanksgiving with a Horn of Plenty Crochet Pattern.
On the other side of the page of tatting instructions was an advertisement for mail order sewing patterns. These illustrations give you a glimpse into dress designs in 1924. The descriptions of the dresses are just as interesting and the patterns were only 12¢ each!
