One day browsing the net I came upon this Let's Knit magazine called Nostalgic Crochet. What draw me to it was this picture showing these gorgeous coin purses in a specific pattern. Actually it was the pattern that captured my attention.
My grandma called it "The Lost Road". It was one of her most favourite patterns. When I was just a little girl, whenever we had it on the table, tracing the whirling pattern, I couldn't help but imagine a dirt road winding deep into green woods and wondered how could a road lose itself. It's a fond memory of mine.
The lost road...
Grandma made me a tablecloth and doilies to accompany it.
The round doily (in the center of the collage below) is actually a sampler from my hub's grandma. Apparently she liked it too.
I proud myself of being able to "decipher" a pattern just by looking at it (same as grandma) but this is a tough one.
I know I have this pattern somewhere and when I find it I'll post it here.
