As I have been mentioning, I have found very few instances where one of the mail order patterns (Alice Brooks or Laura Wheeler) are actual duplicates of each other. So, not exactly the same, but closely related to each other; variations you might say.
Today I came across an example of a lovely Rose Design.
Alice Brooks 7327 - Raised rose motif in an eight point star with diamond motifs between the points. Made at 13 or 22 inches.
Laura Wheeler 603 - Raised rose motif in a 6 point star with wheel center, and shell scallops. Make at 11 13, 18 or 21 inches.
Laura Wheeler 507 - Raised Rose in Pineapple Motif with scalloped edges. Crochet this runner at 12 x 26, or 15 x 32 inches.
The commonality, of course, is the rose. Exact same rose, with the petal and leaves, in all three patterns with the variations being the number of star points, or scallops, or round versus oval. Although I have a lot of these Design patterns, there are hundreds more out there (waiting for me to find), and I have no doubt this exact rose will show up again, and again .... and perhaps, even again.
Thanks for dropping by,
