Vintage Pattern

Last week, Mia at Mias Landiv posted a beautiful quilt she made along with a white vintage crochet coverlet.  While her quilt is stunning, I couldn't take my eyes off the crochet piece.

I asked Mia if she could point me in the direction of the pattern, but she said it was a "Lucky Find" and not something she had made herself.  So, I started looking on Ravelry and on-line to see if I could locate the pattern or something like it.

This is the closest I could find.

Vintage Crochet Pattern


The link takes you to an Etsy site where the woman is charging $2.99 for the square (pattern).

My guess is, since this is a vintage pattern, that it is available for free somewhere on-line.  So, I thought I'd put it out there and see if any of you have come across anything like this?  
If so, maybe you could point me in the right direction?

One of the things I love about Mia's "Lucky Find" is the beautifully done border.  

Wowsa!  Isn't it gorgeous?

I'm going to tuck this away in the recesses of my mind for a future project.  

It is timeless in white, but what do you think about this color green?

I'm feeling a bit better today.  
Thank you for your encouraging comments on my grumpy Monday post.  

:-)

Hope your Tuesday is going great,

Heather

  1. Well I am glad to hear you are feeling better Heather ( I missed your Monday post) but I have to say that the square pattern would make any blanket look beautiful and the green would just be so perfect...I say....go for it!

  2. I saw that coverlet too. It was beautiful. I think it would be pretty in the green, too.
    Hmmm, the square doesn't look too hard to duplicate. I've never seen that pattern, but it looks like the first five rounds are the never ending granny. Rounds 6 and 7 are dc's mixed with cross stitch crochets (that might not be the right name, but the crochet stitch looks like an X). And the last round looks like popcorns with dc's. I'll play with it, see what I can come up with. No guarantees.
    Glad your Tuesday is better than Monday.
    Blessings :-)

    1. That is OK, I could duplicate it also. I just thought if someone knew a website with vintage patterns, it would be fun to find. I also wanted to see if I could find the border pattern. Thank you for your comment. Have a great day.

    2. Oh, I know you could, sweetie :-) Just thinking out loud. Antiquecrochetpatterns.com has a lot of pretty vintage patterns; so does freevintagecrochet.com. The border is beautiful. Good luck with your search :-)

  3. I haven't come across anything like it Heather, but I'll keep an eye out. That green color is pretty and would make a beautiful blanket. :)

  4. I had to go back and see Heather's grumpy post :) I can understand why you feel disheartened, but it is so exciting to see your house almost completed! I can imagine you and your family enjoying the beautiful features you have shown us. If I spot a pattern like you showed in this post, I will be sure to send you the link. xx

  5. I did a bit of a search for you and I found a free pattern that is similar heather if you want to take a look it is here .....

    I think this would be timeless in white and classic sophistication in the lovely shade of green you have found.

  6. Hi Heather. I have not seen the post you are referring to, but as soon as I comment here, I am heading on over to have a look. I also seemed to have missed your previous post, so I just now went back to read it. I am missing a lot of posts lately. I am spending less time on the computer, and I always start my reading from my blogroll, at the top. Sometimes, I get so tired, as it usually at the end of the day before bed, that I just can't go on. So I am missing some things. Oh shoosters, I feel so bad for you. I can't even imagine how hard and frustrating it would be to build my own home. I don't think I could do it. No, I know I couldn't !!! I don't like unrest. I thrive on order, and like to know what is coming day to day. I know that isn't always the way it goes, but I really do thrive on routine. You must be ready to pull your hair out.
    I am hoping that the last few things that need to get done, will be done in a timely manner so that you can move in soon. The kitchen is looking great. I love the counter top color!!!!
    Love,
    Kris

    1. Thank you for your nice comment Kris. I too like routine and structure, which is one of the reasons, I think, I'm finding the building process frustrating. Hopefully it will be over soon. Take care, Heather

  7. Heather, the house is looking fantastic. I know you are annoyed at the slow progress, but is is going to be so wonderful when it is done. Hang in there my friend, and I love that vintage pattern, very lovely.
    Hugs to you and I wish you the best with your move.
