1952 Luncheon Set With Runner Free Vintage Crochet Pattern

1952 Luncheon Set With Table Runner made of crochet thread. Free Vintage Crochet Pattern. This pattern also has instructions to make a table cloth giving you the amount of strips to put together. I love these old books and have made quite a lot from them.

Small Ball:
Clark’s ONT - 26 balls of white
J&P Coats - 19 balls of white
Steel crochet hook No. 12 or 13

Completed runner measures about 13 1/2 x 31 1/2 inches: each place mat measures about 12 1/4 x 12 1/4 inches across center.

Gauge: Each motif measures 1 3/4 inches in diameter.

PLACE MATS (Make 6) - First Motif: Ch 10, join with sl st to form a ring. 1st rnd: Ch 3, 23 dc in ring. Join with sl st to 3rd st of ch 3. 2nd rnd: Ch 4: * dc in next dc, ch 1. Repeat from * around. Join last ch 1 with sl st to 1st sp. 3rd rnd: Ch 10, * skip 1 sp, tr in next sp, ch 6. Repeat from * around. Join last ch 6 with sl st to 4th st of ch 10. 4th rnd: * Ch 2, sk 2 dc, dc in next ch, ch 2, dc in next ch, ch 2, sc in next tr. Repeat from * around, ending with sc in same place where first ch 2 started. 5th rnd: * Ch 2, dc in next dc, ch 2, dc in ch 2 sp, ch 2, dc in next dc, ch 2 sc in next sc. Repeat from * around, ending with sc in same place where first ch 2 started. Fasten off.

Second Motif: Work 4 rnds as for 1st motif. 5th rnd: Ch 2, dc in next dc, * ch 1, sl st in corresponding sp on 1st motif, ch 1, dc in next sp on second motif, ch 1, sl st in next sp on first motif, ch 1 dc in next dc on second motif, ch 2, sc in next sc, ch 2, dc in next dc. Repeat from * once more; complete rnd as for 1st motif.

Make 2 more motifs, joining as 2nd was joined to 1st. This completes one strip. Make another strip of 5 motifs, joining 2 points of each motif to 2 points of adjacent motifs as before (motifs fall between those of previous strip). Continue thus, making 1 strip of 6 motifs, 1 strip of 7 motifs, then 1 strip of 6 motifs, 1 strip of 5 motifs, and 1 strip of 4 motifs. This completes 1 place mat.

RUNNER: Make 1 strip of 14 motifs, then 1 strip of 15 motifs, 1 strip of 16 motifs, 1 strip of 17 motifs, 1 strip of 18 motifs, 1 strip of 17 motifs, 1 strip of 16 motifs, 1 strip of 15 motifs, and last strip of 14 motifs.

This motif will also make a charming table cloth. For a size 54 x 72 inches use Clark’s ONT or J&P Coats Best Six Cord Mercerized Crochet, small ball size 50. Alternate 18 strips of 40 motifs with 17 strips of 41 motifs.
