Who doesn’t love butterflies? Now you can have them in your kitchen with this crochet pattern for a butterfly pot holder.

Made with Lily Cotton Yarn or Sugar ‘N Cream Yarn, you can choose your colors to match your kitchen. This yarn is a soft, 4-ply cotton that works up quickly. The heavier weight gives good hand protection from hot pans.

This would make a great bazaar sale item too.

Welcome to this Friday’s VTNS Fan Freebie!

Vintage Crafts and More - Crochet Corner Pattern

Most of the time we see vintage crochet trim patterns but do you ever see a crochet pattern for a corner? Today we have several for you to match up with pretty crochet trims.

These trims and corners have all kinds of uses and would be especially appealing on a vintage piece. They add a pretty lace look to linens, handkerchiefs, collars and more.

Below you’ll find a page from this vintage booklet that I thought was worth posting. It includes the type of thread used for the crochet pattern pieces, crochet abbreviations and an illustrated how-to on the different crochet stitches.

This sheet is great if you’re a beginner and could be helpful to a seasoned crocheter as well.
