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.

This quick and simple filet crochet chart is from a Learn How Book published in 1941. The chart is for a Filet Tray Cloth with four corners of filet crochet design.  The chart and instructions for the cloth are included in the PDF file.

For those who are not familiar with this beautiful form of crochet, here is a quick low down on how to start.

Filet is a type of crochet which consists of blocks and spaces arranged to produce an interesting design. All filet designs are worked from a chart of squares. The dark squares represent blocks and the light squares represent spaces.

This is what the chart looks like:

Unless otherwise instructed in the directions, allow four double crochets (4 dc) for the first block and three double crochets (3 dc) for each additional block. For instance, three blocks require ten double crochets (4+3+3=10 dc).

To make a row of spaces, first work a foundation chain. Then, make double crochet (dc) in 8th chain (ch) from hook, * chain (ch) 2, skip 2 chain (ch), double crochet (dc) in next chain (ch). Repeat from * to end of chain (ch). Chain (ch) 5 to turn at the end of the row.

When there are several rows of spaces to be made, each double crochet is worked directly over the double crochet of the previous row and same number of chains is made between double crochets.
