Beverly Lace & Insertion by Blanche Kendall-Job

Beverly Lace & Insertion

This pattern is available from for $0.99.

Originally designed by Blanche Kendall-Job in 1927, Beverly Lace and Insertion is a very simple and attractive Art Deco design, with symbolic representations of flowers and leaves. It’s suitable for many purposes, and the lace edging and insertion may be used separately or in combination. In rather heavy thread the insertion makes a handsome stripe for a bedspread, with alternating stripes of plain filet crochet spaces, or strips of hemstitched fabric of the same width; and a dresser-scarf, pillow and other pieces of a bedroom-set may be made to match. Edgings and insertions make spectacular details in garments.

This is not your usual scanned vintage crochet pattern. To make this pattern great for today’s crocheter I wrote complete instructions, expanded the written instructions so you won’t need to skip around, and made an easy to follow chart. I also changed the written instructions to use modern US crochet terms.

The only stitches you need to know to complete this lace are: chain stitch, single crochet, double crochet, and slip stitch. This lace pattern’s rows are done top to bottom.
