Pom Pon Rug called Wedding Ring

Anyone attending a wedding soon? For this week’s freebie I found a Pom Pon Rug called Wedding Ring. I would guess it’s named that because of it’s similarity to the quilt pattern with the same name.

Pom Pon Rug Wedding Ring

Lily Design Book

It’s from a 1950 Lily Mills Company Design Book No. 54 titled Rugs ~ Needlepoint, Crocheted, Hooked and Fluff. The original cost was ten cents.

Vintage Lily Pom and Tuft Form

It uses Poms and Tufts to make it. The Lily company manufactured a form just for making rugs like these called a Lily Pom and Tuft Form. The instructions from the booklet to make the tufts using the form are below. I’ve also included them in the PDF file.

Instructions for Lily Pom and Tufts Form

“A quick, neat way to make poms or fluffs for the beautiful kitten-soft Pom Rug”

Kitten-soft, nice! I found a couple vintage Lily forms for sale on Etsy and a couple on Ebay. The links are a search so if the ones I found are sold, it should pull up any others that have been listed.

What Yarn Should I Use?

The instructions call for Lily Cotton Rug Yarn. Here’s the description of it in the booklet. This may help to find a good equivalent.

“A soft, quick-working, 4-ply cotton yarn, in a range of 33 boil-proof colors. Useful for rugs in hooking, crocheting, knitting, needlepoint and fluff — 70-yard skeins. Use Lily Cotton Rug Yarn for easily-washed, bright colored scatter rugs or room size rugs.”

Lily’s Sugar ‘n Cream could be substituted, it can be machine washed and dried. The website Interweave has a good article, What’s the Best Cotton for Bath Mats, comparing five different contemporary cotton yarns and how they fared using them to make a bath mat.

Today’s free vintage crochet pattern is a pretty daisy placemat for Spring. It’s from a 1950’s Lily Mills booklet. The placemat measures 12 x 18 inches with daisies wrapped around a lace mesh middle. There are pretty scalloped edges too.

Materials required:

The listed choices of materials you can use are:

Daisy Mercerized Crochet Cotton, Art 65, White, Size 30 OR
Lily Mercerized Crochet Cotton, Art 36, White, Size 30 OR
Lily Mercerized Crochet Cotton, Art 161, White, Size 30

After working with vintage crochet patterns for years, I still have questions about what the Art number means on these types of vintage threads. I don’t believe it’s meant to be the color or the size of thread, but it may be a number assigned to signify the amount of thread in the ball or skein.

The closest I’ve come to an answer is it may have been the product name similar to “Classic” or “Cebelia” today. If anyone knows, please leave a comment on this post.

Because the threads required are no longer made, these two threads would be a fine substitute for the vintage ones listed above. Both are a Size 30 Mercerized Cotton:  Aunt Lydia’s Extra Fine Crochet Cotton OR DMC Cebelia Crochet Cotton.

If you find the type of Crochet Cotton to use confusing, this post on the Red Heart Yarn website called the Ultimate Beginner’s Guide to Thread Crochet will be helpful.

The crochet hook is size No. 13 and the Gauge is 6 sps = 1 inch; 6 rows = 1 inch. It always helps to have the gauge in these vintage crochet patterns.
