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. The bowl cover pictured is covering a small wash basin bowl and is 15.5 inches square using the size 10 thread. BASIC SKILLS NECESSARY crochet This pattern uses basic 4-dc filet. GAUGE The gauge is to be square in your rows vs your columns. SIZING / FINISHED MEASUREMENTS 15.5 inches square SUGGESTED YARN 350 yards of Lace weight PREFERRED BRAND/YARN crochet cotton size 10 COLORWAY This pattern is a graph with a few written instructions.

I have been crocheting for 40 years. It is a craft that I want to promote and encourage in everyone that loves to create. I especially like to bring the antique patterns and techniques forward in time and make them accessible to new crocheters.
