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?

Memorial Day makes this a long weekend for some. It’s an American holiday that marks the start of summer and a time to remember those who’ve died while serving in the Armed Forces.

I was thrilled when I found this great crochet pattern for a patriotic pair of Emblem Pot Holders held on a Victory “V” rack.

Vintage Crafts and More - Emblem Pot Holder Crochet Pattern

Made with Red, White and Blue yarn The Eagle and The Shield Pot Holders are made with a crochet Puff Stitch, then the designs are cross stitched onto the background.

These require Enterprise Yarn which is discontinued, so an alternative may be Lily’s Sugar n’ Cream or Aunt Lydia’s Fashion crochet cotton in #3.

Using the page of directions below for how a Puff Stitch is crocheted, you can make any size piece you’d like from holders to a large rug.  The gauge is 5 Puffs or 5 rows = 2 inches or 30 Puffs = 1 foot.

From a 1946 Star Book Treasure Chest of Crochet, this quick and easy crochet pattern will be done and planted on your table in no time.

The American Thread Company’s Sillateen Sansil crochet thread is discontinued. It is a 2-ply 100% cotton. Some times you can find the original thread on eBay or you can use an equivalent 2-ply.

Experiment with different yarns too. It’s really up to you and how you’d like your carnation to look. For this pattern you’ll need40 yards of colored thread to make one flower and a No. 5 Steel Crochet Hook.

I found this helpful 2 minute YouTube video crochet tutorial by eHow that explains the Difference Between 2-ply and 4-ply Cotton Thread.

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

Vintage-Crafts-and-More-Crochet-Net-Shopping-Bag-Pattern

Today’s vintage crochet pattern is not only great to use for shopping but for storing onions, potatoes and other produce in your pantry. The netting feature will let air circulate.

The pattern uses a size 7 crochet hook and JP Coats Knit-Cro-Sheen Cotton Crochet Thread. This bag is done in red, but there are many other colors you could choose from.

The shopping bag folds down so that it can tuck in to the corner of your purse to have handy for that spur of the moment shopping trip. Best of all these are reusable so you’ll use less of those plastic grocery bags.
