Right now there’s an abundance of corn on the cob in my neck of the woods so when I came across this vibrant corn potholder in a Clark’s and Coats 1951 booklet I wanted to share it.
The colors and texture on this potholder look like a lot of fun and a nice addition to decorate or use in your kitchen. The ear of corn is crocheted then sewn onto the pot holder. It’s lined with felt.
Materials you’ll need
You’ll need several different materials and colors to crochet this potholder. Some no longer available but the Size numbers are given, so that will help for an alternative cotton.
Where I live summer time was welcomed in with a tropical storm that brought three days of rain that just didn’t look like it was ever going to stop. Today there’s still a tropical breeze but the sun peeked through for a little while this afternoon.
Summertime Towel Set
When I saw this crochet pattern for a Summertime Towel Set it made me smile and I chose it for today’s freebie pattern.
Butterflies and Flowers
Butterflies and Flowers, you can’t get much more summer time than that.
The towel’s also have the prettiest purple crocheted edge.
This crochet pattern is from a Lily Mills Design Booklet titled Fair, Bazaar and Gift Crocheting.
Two Lovely Designs
There are two lovely designs. One for a hand towel and the other a wash cloth. Plus a pretty edging for both.
Today’s pattern freebie is a lovely star crochet pattern for a tablecloth. This is a vintage Coats and Clark’s leaflet for the Design of the Month. It’s called Shining Star and was a free leaflet at the time.
Crochet Design of the Month – Shining Star
Suggested colors are White, Ecru or Cream. Either J & P Coats or Clark’s Big Ball Mercerized Crochet Cotton in Size 30 is used to make this pretty cloth. You’ll need a lot of cotton for this 62 x 83 inch tablecloth. Of course, you could make it smaller as a table runner or dresser scarf.

Download Instructions: 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.
Two Square Motifs
You’ll see that each motif is 4½ inches square. There are crochet instructions for two motifs and an edging. To make the full tablecloth you need 14 rows of 19 motifs.
This crochet pattern is ambitious, but so worth the trouble when finished. I think I’d have to go with a table runner or smaller table cloth. Has anyone seen a vintage crocheted tablecloth in this pattern?
