Ruffled Rose Napkin Holder

Years ago they crafted napkin holder crochet designs like these using a wire frame.  Today these wire frames are no longer available but the design can still be used.  If you crochet a solid double crochet circle to match the size of this rose design and sew it to the back you would have a beautiful potholder or hot mat.  This rose design could also be used as a small doily or cover on a jar of jam or preserves to create a gorgeous gift.

    Hi Maggie,
    What fond memories this pattern brings back. I made many for friends and family over the years. Only wish there were a source for the holder once again. Thanks for sharing it again.

    I’m so happy to find this pattern! A few years ago I found one of these napkin holders at a flea market and grabbed it up! The cover is stained but in pretty good shape. I have been looking for the pattern so I could make another cover for the wire holder.
    Thanks for posting this!!

    I used my scroll saw and 1/8″ baltic to make a ring and a piece for a stand. Looks beautiful.
