Rambling Rose

Saturday, January 27, 2007
My grandmother did exquisite crochet. I didn't learn how to crochet from her but I learned what quality work looked like. Every summer during vacation Grandma would make a trip to the local five-and-dime store and purchase three items: a crochet hook, thread and a pattern book. As the crocheter of the family I inherited these vintage crochet books and they are a special part of my pattern collection.

I have several pieces of her work and one of my favorites is a pair of pillow cases. The pattern is called Rambling Rose and is in the pattern book Pillow Cases Decorative Crochet - Book No. 264 - Copyright 1950 The Spool Cotton Company.
