Another word for Horn of Plenty is Cornucopia. Filled with produce, flowers or nuts it’s a symbol of abundance and nourishment making it the perfect centerpiece for a Thanksgiving table.

Follow the instructions for this vintage crochet pattern and you’ll have a great table decoration for Thanksgiving. This crochet pattern comes from an American Thread Star Book number 116 titled Crocheted Fashions. Probably from around the 1940’s.

At the end of the pattern there are instructions for starching the horn of plenty by heating a mixture of starch and water. In an earlier post I shared a Miniature Horn of Plenty Crochet Pattern that also has instructions for stiffening a crocheted item using water and sugar.


If you don’t want to take the time and trouble to make your own stiffening agent Aleene’s Fabric Stiffener and Draping Liquid is also a great way to stiffen your crocheted items. It’s non-toxic, thin and tintable. When dry, it’s water-resistant and easy to paint.

This pattern is in a 1950s Kaminow Bros booklet of Charming Petite Miniatures Crocheted with Cinderella Slipper Tinsel.

Materials required are a Steel Crochet Hook #10 and since I had no luck finding the thread mentioned in the booklet, I came up with an alternative that may work — Aunt Lydia’s Extra Fine Crochet Thread (Size 30)

The abbreviations used in the pattern are listed at the end of the post.

Here’s the pattern. To save or print it, simply click on it, it will open in another window and then you can save or print it from there.
