Mail Order 2494 - Crocheted Pansy Doily - This beauty is medium in size at 12 inches. The Pansies are crocheted separately and then stitched to the doily.
Mail Order 2470 - Crocheted Chair-Back Set : This crochet pattern has been termed a Chair-Back set, which I'd think was an apparent mistake (particularly since it ins't portrayed as such). I'm officially calling it a doily. This one has the small pansy center, followed by crochet that has been folded to resemble leaves, another large border of pansies with shells in between. And, if that isn't enough, it has a gathering of three doilies at each of two sides transforming it to 'almost' an oval doily.
These are both Mail Order Design Patterns. I believe they are from Kate Marchbanks (which would lead back to Anne Cabot), but I'm not positive of that. I do know that I welcome them to my collection.
Can there ever be too many Pansy Doilies? Well, probably not. (I've more in the shop, in case wish to browse further).
Thanks for dropping by,
