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.

Welcome to this Friday’s VTNS (Vintage Textile and Needlework Sellers) Fan Freebie!

Snowman Knitting Pattern - Vintage Crafts and More

 

This cute knitted snowman pattern is from an American Thread Aunt Lydia’s Rug Yarn Collection Star Book No. 225. He uses two 70 yard skeins of white Heavy Rug Yarn and 1 pair of size No. 8 knitting needles. The gauge is 4 sts = 1 inch.

Rubber balls, one 7 inches in diameter and one 5½ inches in diameter are used as his body. Black felt and red ribbon are used for his accessories. I’m sure you could use polyester stuffing rather than the rubber balls to fill out his body.

 

 

Here’s the knitting pattern instructions for the Showman Snowman:
