Vintage crochet patterns hold a special place in my heart. I love how much thought and care was put into the art of entertaining. The Party Flower Coaster crochet pattern, is no exception. The Party Flower coasters were a fast pattern to crochet and turned out perfectly! Maybe a little too perfectly. My mother-in-law swiped them as soon as they were finished. I will take that as the ultimate compliment.
From Lily’s Album Crocheted Designs, Book 1200, – Pattern A – Party Flowers. A little advice, hide them when your mother-in-law comes for a visit, or you may just find them missing.
