Chair Sets, also known as "antimacassars", were oh-so-trendy in the 1930's. They'd been popular for many years prior, due at least in part to the popularity of oiled hairstyles, but they were quite fashionable during the 30's. I've seen numerous antimacassar crochet patterns from this time period. Shown here is a filet crochet chair set with holly and bird motifs designed by Mary Card. The pattern for this chair set was originally published in the December 1931 Issue of Needlecraft Magazine.
Here's a photo of an "Unusually Attractive Vandyke Border"; this exquisite edging was featured in the September 1931 issue of Needlecraft Magazine. The pattern given is for creating the edging in either giant filet or gros filet crochet. Click Here To See More Information About the September 1931 Issue of Needlecraft Magazine.
