Butterfly Lace Table Runner by Arphilien Bousquet

Butterfly Lace Table Runner

This pattern is available from claudiabotterweg.com for $2.99.

Dress up your table with a lovely, simple pattern from nature. This Lace Scarf with Butterfly Motif was designed by Arphilien Bousquet in 1916.

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. The lace is made from the center out, then the other half is done from the center out.
