This has a lot of rustic charm. From Work Basket, May 1955.
17 x 42 inches if worked with size 30 thread and #12 hook. Or use larger thread and make fewer motifs. For the small motifs, one needs to crochet 186 each of the small squares and daisies, and sixteen of the large motifs. I've never done filet. I made a few of the small motifs with #30 DMC Cordonnet and a #12 hook, but they won't come out square. I normally work rather firmly, maybe I just need to do trebles instead.
