apron and pattern

The first of many aprons to come.

Didn't work on Effie much this weekend; made an apron instead. This is a sort of hostess's apron; it reminds me of Mother's Day or Easter. I have a question -- I debated on making a crochet pansy and either placing it on the waist band or the right side bottom of the apron; any opinions? I still need to finish off the ribbons and sew them neatly so you won't see frayed edges. This is not the type of apron that will keep your clothes clean. It just states "I am the hostess. If you have questions, ask me, and don't I look pretty."

this is the original pattern with some mods for modern reading (star book company book #89 gallery of crochet and knitting)I  changed mine when I made it to accommodated the yarn I had but do it how ever you like
Size 10 crochet thread
2 balls main color =MC
1 ball each of two contrasting colors=CCA, CCB
⅞" ribbon.=1 ¼ yds.
steel 7
sp = spacedc= double crochet
ch = chain
st/sts = stitch/stitches
sk = skip
nxt = next

ch 14,
  1. 2 dc in 6th st from hook, ch 2, 2 dc in same sp, ch 3, sk 3 sts of ch, sc in nxt st, ch 3, sk 3 sts of ch, work 2 dc, ch 2, 2 dc in last st of ch, ch 5, turn.
  2. 1 dc, ch 3, 1 dc shell in center of shell, ch 5, 1 dc, ch 3, 1 dc in center of nxt shell, ch 5, turn. 
  3. 2 dc, ch 2, 2 dc shell in ch 3 loop, ch 3, 1 sc over ch 5 loop, ch 3, 2 dc, ch 2, 2 dc shell in nxt ch 3 loop, ch 5, turn.
Repeat the last 2 rows until there are 67—ch 5 loops across side of band, ending with the 3rd row, cut thread. 

Attach MC in 23rd loop
  1. ch 3, dc in same loop, ch 2, 2 dc in same loop, * ch 5, 2 dc, ch 2, 2 dc shell in nxt loop,* repeat   3x, ** ch 5, 3 dc, ch 2, 3 dc in nxt loop, * ch 5, 2 dc shell in nxt loop, repeat from * 4x, then repeat from ** 2x, ch 5 to turn each row. 
  2. * 1 dc, ch 3, 1 dc shell in nxt shell, ch 3, sc over nxt loop, ch 3,* repeat 3x, 1 dc, ch 3, 1 dc in nxt shell, ch 5 (open lace work area), skip 1 dc of nxt 3 dc shell, 1 dc in each of the nxt 2 dc, 1 dc in nxt loop, ch 2, 1 d c in same loop, 1 dc in each of the nxt 2 dc of same 3 dc shell (large solid shell that goes the height of the apron), ch 5, repeat from beginning twice and complete row to correspond. There are 4 lace sections and 3 solid sections in row. 
  3. Work 2 dc shells with ch 5 between shells in each shell of lace sections & work solid section same as previous row. 
  4. Repeat 2nd row. 
  5. Repeat 3rd row for lace sections & increase in solid sections as follows: 2 dc in 2nd dc, 1 dc in nxt dc, 1 dc in nxt loop, ch 2, 1 dc in same loop, 1 dc in nxt dc, 2 dc in nxt dc. The 3rd and 4th rows of lace pattern are followed for en-tire apron and will not be referred to again. Following directions given are for the solid sections only.
  6.  1 d c in 2nd, 3rd and 4th dc, 1 dc in loop, ch 2, 1 dc in same loop and nxt 3 dc. 
  7. repeat row 6
  8. repeat row 6 
  9. 2 dc in 2nd dc, 1 dc in each of the nxt 2 dc, 1 dc in nxt loop, ch 2, 1 dc in same loop and 1 dc in each of the nxt 2 dc, 2 dc in next dc. 
  10. 1 dc in 2nd, 3rd, 4th and 5th dc, dc in nxt loop, ch 2, 1 dc in same loop & nxt 4 dc.
  11. repeat row 10
  12. repeat row 10
Repeat the last 4 rows, having 1 more dc on each side of each solid section every 4th row until there are 40 rows total. There should be 12 dc in each side of each solid section. Increasing in same manner, work 18 more rows in the following color scheme: 2 rows each of CCB, MC, CCA and MC, 4 rows CCB, 2 rows MC, 4 rows CCA and 2 rows MC. 
 finish apron by
Pressing  apron and weave ribbon through waist band.

I did mine in a little bigger thread and bigger hook, so I dropped the last 8 rows off of the pattern for mine, and I only used 2 colors instead of three. Just remember, you never have to do what a pattern states; make it your own and have fun doing it.


    What a pretty apron, must be a lot of fun to do, and the ideas for making them would be endless. You will be like Aunt George and be dreaming apron ideas while you sleep.
    Mailed you out a card this morning.
