Tablecloth Crochet Pattern

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.

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.

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?

Baby Hat Crochet Pattern That Looks Like A Football Helmet

Today’s fan freebie is a baby hat crochet pattern that looks like a football helmet. That’s right, it looks like a football helmet, but it is cute just the same.

I realized I don’t have the cover to the booklet this crochet pattern is in. Since most of the patterns include the use of Chadwick’s Red Heart Baby Wool, my research tells me it may be a 1940s Woolies for Babies book.

The Chadwick’s Red Heart Baby Wool used for this baby hat crochet pattern is discontinued. A substitute could be a fingering or sport weight yarn. I found Paton’s Beehive Baby Fingering yarn or Lion Brand Babysoft yarn, either should work okay.

No gauge is listed making it hard to get this vintage pattern right. While doing research for a yarn substitute, I came across an article on the Knitty website called The Joy of Vintage Patterns. It has some great information about using vintage patterns today.

Here’s the PDF file to download:

Since the baby hat crochet pattern is in PDF format, you’ll need the Adobe Reader software on your computer to read it. Most computers have it, but it is free and can be found here.

I’m watching the Superbowl next weekend. Football is one of my husband’s favorite past times. I watched occasionally before I met him, but didn’t understand the game. He explained how it’s played, we have a favorite team and I’m hooked.

Go Falcons!!

Today’s vintage crochet pattern comes from a Lily Design Booklet entitled Doilies, no date. This crocheted doily caught my eye because of it’s eight points which represent a number of things, depending on your culture and system of belief.

One of the beliefs is new beginnings, a great start for a new year. Pointed Harmony is the name of this crochet pattern, maybe Lily felt it represented harmony. Either way it is a beautiful symmetrical crocheted piece.

Mandalas

Looking at it, it reminds me of a Mandala. I make them using a paid computer program but I found this site, Mandala Creator that lets you create them for free.

Choose your line, colors, etc., hold down the left side of your mouse, design then let go for each part, when you’re finished you can save it. Very fun to play with.

I made the one below just playing around with it for a minute.

Also I’ve seen many adult coloring books that use Mandalas.
