Welcome to this Friday’s VTNS Fan Freebie!

I’m sharing a page today from the vintage booklet Filet Crochet and How to Use It by Augusta Pfeuffer.  This is a graph for a luncheon cloth with napkins to match.

Cotton crochet thread No. 50 is used for the filet crochet on the luncheon set. The usual size for the cloth is 36 to 38 inches when finished and the napkins are usually 12 or 14 inches square.

Here’s a close up of the finished luncheon cloth and napkin:

You might want to check out an earlier post of 22 filet crochet edge designs from the same booklet.

I’ve added a “filet crochet” category, so it’d be easier to find several other posts of patterns and how to do it.  When you click on the category, the latest post (the edge designs) will come up, to see others, click on “older posts” at the lower left bottom of the post.

If you’d like the page in PDF format to download for later, here’s the link:

VTNS Fan Freebie – Shamrock Dish Cloth Knitting Pattern

Shamrock Dish Cloth for St. Patrick’s Day

One of our very own VTNS (Vintage Textile and Needlework Sellers) members has designed a pretty dish cloth knitting pattern with a Shamrock for St. Patrick’s Day.

Shamrock Dish Cloth Knitting Pattern

An easy to do Shamrock dish cloth just in time for St. Patrick’s day.  The design emerges as the rows are knitted and purled.  It looks intimidating with 47 rows but you will soon see the pattern and catch on pretty quick.  This would make a nice hostess gift at a St. Patrick’s day party! 

The Shamrock

Long a symbol of Ireland, the Shamrock was thought to have magical powers with the number 3 considered a lucky number.  St. Patrick used the Shamrock to symbolize the Trinity.  According to legend, a shamrock’s leaves will stand upright in a storm and snakes will avoid them.

Best Yarn to use

A medium weight cotton yarn will work. To make the dish cloth shown you’ll need just over an ounce of Sugar and Cream cotton yarn.  The finished dish cloth measures 10 x 7 inches. Since it’s a cotton yarn, it will shrink in the dryer.  The rating for the knitting pattern is beginner.
