Cover for Sugar-Bowl and Cream-Pitcher

from Design by Robin Abdullah
(4) Name: 'Crocheting : Cover for Sugar-Bowl and Cream-Pitcher
Cover for Sugar-Bowl and Cream-Pitcher

Basic Skills Necessary:

  • crochet
  • This pattern uses basic 4-dc filet.

Pattern Description:

This can be a dainty little vintage bowl cover. Reproduced from the "Handbook of Crochet, No. 2", Published by Needlecraft Publishing Company, c 1921. When choosing your beads make sure they are not so heavy that they crack your china bowls. This is a great piece to learn how to do basic filet crochet.

The original recommended thread for this bowl cover was a US Size 50 weight. The resulting bowl cover would have a very small mesh and be quite delicate in appearance. The pattern has been written based on a US Size 10 weight thread which makes the bowl cover large enough to cover a cereal bowl. The smaller your thread, the closer you will be to the original intent of the design.

This is a basic filet pattern rated as "beginner/easy". It does assume that you have pre-knowledge of filet crochet.

Stitches used: sl st, sc, ch, dc

Beads are optional.
