Crochet Flower Basket
Spring has sprung and what better way to welcome Spring than with a pretty crochet flower basket pattern. This one comes from a 1954 Coats & Clark’s book titled Smart Chair Sets.
Even though this is a chair set the pretty flower baskets could be used many other ways. Such as an applique on a blanket or pillow. Just set it on a table as a doily and I’m sure there are more you can think of.
The chair back flower basket measures 11 x 17 inches and each arm piece measures 7 x 11 inches. Pretty good size.
Basket Towel Applique Set
Another smaller and quicker option but just as pretty is this crochet flower basket pattern for appliqueing on towels. It’s from a 1950’s Spool Cotton Company booklet.
You’ll find it for free on the Ravelry website, a community of crafters that share projects, patterns and ideas.
What thread should I use?
The J & P Coats Knit-Cro-Sheen thread Article A64 is a 4-ply 100% mercerized Size 10 cotton. You can find vintage Knit-Cro-Sheen crochet thread for sale on ebay. Aunt Lydia’s Crochet Thread Classic 10 would be a suitable substitute.
