Rose and Butterfly Lace Border Filet Crochet Pattern

Roses, butterflies and winding leaves decorate this summery filet crochet lace edging. Designed in 1927 by Olive F. Ashcroft, it can be used as a border for a tablecloth or a dresser scarf. Make the narrow leaf border as long as you need, or omit it for a faster project.

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, single crochet, double crochet, double treble, and slip stitch.

Retail pricing is $5.99 for paperback and $2.99 for Digital Editions
