Originally written by an unknown designer in 1927 for the back of a chair, Two Peacocks Lace would make a lovely lace curtain or wall hanging for todays home. This is not your usual scanned vintage crochet pattern! To make this pattern great for todays crocheter, I wrote complete instructions and made an easy to follow chart. I changed the written instructions to use modern US crochet terms, and added a chart for more advanced crocheters. The only stitches you need to know to complete this lace are: chain stitch, single crochet, double crochet, and triple treble crochet.
