Designed in 1921 as a pillow cover pattern, Emma Loper made it a tribute to her crafty ancestors, who made mesh lace with thread and netting for antimacassars to keep their furniture free from hair oils. Today you can use the pattern to make a pillow cover, a square doily or a wall hanging, or even use baby yarn for a light afghan.
This is not your usual scanned vintage crochet pattern. To make this pattern great for today’s crocheter I wrote complete instructions, expanded the written instructions so you won’t need to skip around, and made an easy to follow chart. I also changed the written instructions to use modern US crochet terms.
The only stitches you need to know to complete this lace are: chain stitch and double crochet.
