A Different Kind of Pansy Doily

Although mostly used as a doily, this pattern is for a placemat that's part of the "Dinette" series in the Star Puritan Crochet book of 1953. Set also includes patterns for a potholder, large and small hot plate mats, napkin holder cover, and glass jackets.

The thread color for the flowers is shaded pansy. Many older patterns call for this thread. The flowers are crocheted onto green stems.

Double-sided potholder. Sides are crocheted together with row of flowers.

The Famous Puritan Crochet Book #100 from 1953.
Also has patterns for Grape Doily, Grape Hot Plate Mat, Calla Lily Doily (with amazing 3-D flowers), Pineapple Pincushion, chair sets, and a bedspread.
