Details:

In the 1940s and 1950s, lacy crocheted doilies were at their peak in popularity. Frequently used to accent interior decor, these delicate cobwebs of finely worked threads could be made quickly and with little effort. Thread companies turned out thousands of inexpensive instruction booklets for needleworkers constantly looking for new ideas.
Today, renewed interest in hand-crocheted items has once again created a demand for these elegantly simple ― and simply elegant ― doilies. With this eye-catching collection of patterns taken from now-rare thread company publications, modern needleworkers can re-create stunning designs for a variety of projects. Noted needlework authority Rita Weiss has selected 32 masterpieces in miniature that are as suitable for framing as they are for use as centerpieces, placemats, cushion covers, and much more. Patterns include the pansy doily, Spanish fan, morning glory, double ruffle doily, pineapple posy, ripe wheat runner, windmill wings, ring of roses, new daisy doily, sea foam, leafy spray, pinwheel trio, and twenty other exquisite motifs.
This inexpensive and easy-to-follow guide also provides helpful tips for beginners―with abundant advice on selecting materials and working the pattern, as well as on the care and handling of heirloom pieces that will be passed on lovingly from generation to generation.
