Welcome to this Friday’s VTNS (Vintage Textile and Needlework Sellers) Fan Freebie!
This filet crochet pattern is for a chair back and arm pieces, but I can see it as lovely set of place mats or a table topper too.
The set is made with Mercerized Crochet Cotton Size 30 and a Steel Crochet Hook No. 10. This Aunt Lydia’s Crochet Cotton Extra Fine Size 30 would work well.
Gauge is 5 sps make 1 inch; 5 rows make 1 inch.
It’s from the same vintage 1954 booklet Smart Chair Sets as this beautiful Reindeer in the Forest filet crochet.

The PDF file is below. It’s two pages and includes the chart and abbreviations.
The pattern is in PDF format so to download it you’ll need the Adobe Reader software on your computer. Most computers come with it, but it is free and can be found here. There are also free Adobe Reader Apps for mobile devices.
