Designed by Lilian Barton Wilson in 1921, this easy filet crochet panel was inspired by an old English design from the sixteenth century period, and carries a suggestion of chivalry.

 

There will come a time when you’ll need to change colors or add thread in the middle of your project. When I learned to knit and crochet, I was told that knots are a no-no. They are too lumpy and hard to hide. If you just weave in your ends enough, nothing will come loose.

Designed by Helen Nelson in 1918, an easy table runner is constructed from a filet crochet insertion, fabric, and a wide edging for the ends of the table runner. The insertion, made in strips, would make a lovely bedspread, using the edging for a border.  
Simple stitches and a simple pattern, combined with negative space, make for an elegant insertion and lace edging. Designed by Edward Ellis Ford in 1921, you can use this pattern to make wonderful embellishments for garments and linens.

Designed by Ida C. Farr in 1921 as a scarf end, this pattern features an overflowing basket of fruits, and she named it after Pomona, the goddess of garden and orchard. You can crochet this lace for the ends of a table runner or tablecloth, or for a beautiful lace curtain.
