Fluffy Ruffles Crochet Patterns, Coats Book 275

If you love crocheted ruffles, you are going to love this one!   How do I know?  Well, I just do.   This pattern book is from JP Coats Clarks and is Ruffles Book 275.   It contains a delightful assortment of ruffles for your clothing and home decor ... ruffles at their best.   I have to say that this book contains one of the most unique (ruffled, of course) window treatments I've seen.   And, as typical with these 1950 era books, the photography is lovely.    

So, get another cup of tea and enjoy the photo-log.

 Coats Clarks Ruffles Book 275
 The cover features the crocheted window ruffle, along with plant jacket ruffles. 

S- 97 Roses and Ruffles - a detachable Collar that will make a stage with any dress,
 be it high or v-neck.
 S-105 Pinafore Frills - Crocheted neck and hemline ruffles, shown here on a girls dress, but adaptable for any size.   This pattern is available as a free download in my shop. 

S-104 Crocheted Peter Pan collar, a delightful addition for a young girls dress or top. 

 S-106 Buffet Frills : Ruffled Doilies in sizes to meet all of your hostess needs for the buffet. 

S-103  Place mats with a ruffled edge for a soft feminine touch.

S-93 Window Ruffle - A soft and frilly touch as a window treatment.

S-94 Ruffled Kitchen Set includes place mat, pot holders, seat back
cushion set as well as towel edgings. 

S-95 Floral Ruffles :  This is a multi-ruffle opportunity in doily making for the dining table. The water glass doily has a single ruffle; the saucer a double ruffle; the plate a triple ruffle and the centerpiece goes to quadruple!  The flower motif is also quite nice. 

S-101 Ruffled Doily with Rose Applique  -  This design is an applique center of your choice surrounded with three rows of ruffles.  No applique, a linen center would equally as lovely. 

 S-99 Frilly Aprons for Mother Daughter and Doll grace the back cover.  

The directions list 8 different threads, Mercerized Crochet, Tatting Crochet, Knit-Cro-Sheen, etc. with a variety of hooks.    Each pattern will specific a hook, you can vary the threads to arrive at different sizes and textures.   Experiment just for the fun of the ruffles.

I have restored and reformatted these patterns to PDF format and they are available (just follow the links) in my shop.  I particularly think the window, kitchen and pinafore patterns have other great potential uses for the edgings all by themselves.    

I hope you enjoyed the photo journal.  Thanks for dropping by.
