Designed by Ida C. Farr in 1921 as a scarf end, this pattern features an overflowing basket of fruits, and she named it after Pomona, the goddess of garden and orchard. You can crochet this lace for the ends of a table runner or tablecloth, or for a beautiful lace curtain.

With twenty-six different borders to choose from, you can make matching corners for guest towels, pillow covers, tablecloths, napkins, and even handkerchiefs.

Here’s a great tip from Sadie E. Hulands in 1913: When doing any kind of white work, such as crocheting, lay a piece of dark green cloth on the lap and note the difference. Green is particularly restful to the eyes.

Crochet came from the word croc, which is French for hook. Crocheting is an art of fabric creation from a thread, cord or other materials using a crochet hook.
