Ruffled Rose Doily

 

Ruffled Rose Doily – Maggie Weldon Crochet

This beautiful doily came from a vintage crochet pattern book called “Suggestions for Fairs and Bazaars”  Just guessing at the amount of time this lovely doily would take to make I hardly think any of us crocheters would spend all that time making it to sell at a fair!  Luckily we have come a long way since 1953 when this book was printed.  This piece would be destined to be a family heirloom, especially since it is crocheted using a steel crochet hook and crochet cotton thread.

Additional pieces including oval shaped Ruffled Rose Hot Mats that could be used as doilies and a Ruffled Rose Napkin holder that could be converted into a potholder for your kitchen will be posted in a couple of days.

    I made 3 of this doily in 1953 for gifts. I didn’t find it hard. But the blocking took a bit. It is well worth the trouble making.
