Filet Crochet Pattern from 1936
Today’s vintage pattern is from one of my earlier Spool Cotton Company’s pattern booklets. It dates to 1936 when no home was without chair backs and arm pieces. It’s titled Stained Glass and was used to cover and protect chair backs and arms.
I saw this geometric filet crochet pattern and thought there could be so many other uses for it. Perhaps a pillow, an insert to a table cloth or a tray cloth. With a colorful piece of fabric behind it, the pattern would show through nicely.
This is the arm piece pattern chart:
Coats and Clark’s Crochet Threads
Makers of this pattern had several choices of threads to use. Clark’s O.N.T (8 balls) or J. & P. Coats (6 balls) Mercerized Crochet, Size 30 in White or Ecru. Also Clark’s Big Ball Mercerized Crochet (3 balls).
There’s a stitch included in the booklet you’ll need to know for this pattern besides the basic crochet stitches.
Block (bl) and Space (sp). Make 4 d c over 4 sts of preceding row (this forms 1 bl), ch 2, skip 2 sts, make 1 sp. The bl and sp are used in Filet Crochet.
