These crocheted, tatted, and knitted edgings are from Star Book Number 41, a 1946 publication from American Thread Company. There are wider edgings for tablecloths and towels, along with smaller edgings for clothing and hankies. There are several pineapple and flower designs along with filet patterns, also a couple of the patterns feature crosses for church laces. The patterns are designed for mercerized cotton thread sizes 30 to 70, and steel crochet hooks sizes 7 to 14. Book has 23 pages, sold for ten cents.
