Rosette Edging No. 202


The Rosette Edging No. 202 comes from "The Home Art Crochet Book" edited by Flora Klickmann. The book is available freely at The Antique Pattern Library. The edging is found on page 1, Section I, Edgings for the Average Worker.

I reproduce the original antique pattern here (below) and provide a version that I have edited (with step-by-step photos) for the modern crocheter. For the sample shown, I used crochet cotton thread size 8 and steel hook size 1.2mm.
