Originally designed in 1927 by Miss Dick Mountford as a decorative/protective cover for a chair back or a scarf end, this pattern would make a beautiful curtain for today's home. A simple, elegant dogwood blossom has hints of the new art deco style that was just coming into fashion, with symmetry and stylistic spirals.
This is not your usual scanned vintage crochet pattern! To make this pattern great for today's crocheter, I wrote complete instructions and made an easy to follow chart. I changed the and expanded the written instructions so that they'll be easy to understand, and they now use modern US crochet terms. I added a chart for more advanced crocheters. You'll also have estimated yardage requirements for the thread you choose and measurements for the finished piece of lace.
The only stitches you need to know to complete this lace are: chain stitch, single crochet, double crochet, and slip stitch. This lace pattern's rows are done side to side, from top to bottom.
