Clover Leaf tatted edging from 1917

In the book, Novelty Tatting and Maltese Crochet, Book No. 6 Price 10 cents published in 1917 by Novelty Art Studios Chicago, Illinois, this edging pattern is known as No. 17.

pi = picot
ds = double stitch
clover = in this case a 3 leaf configuration

Do not detach thread from ball. * Make a clover leaf of 3 rings thus: 7 pi separated by 3ds; close to form ring; 3 ds join to last pi of ring; 3 ds; finish ring as before; close ; make 3rd ring same as preceding ones; join in like manner; turn. With ball thread ch ( 3 ds; 1 pi) 4 times; join to 4th pi of center ring; ( 3ds: 1 pi) 4 times; 3 ds. With ball thread ch 4 ds; repeat from*

I did not edit this pattern for modern terms and style. It appears as it would have been written when first published.


  1. That is a very pretty lace. Did you make the piece shown or is that the illustration in the book?

  2. It is the illustration from the book. it is a very easy piece to tat though. I have tatted it before. I just like the old pictures.

  3. That pattern is simply beautiful, thanks so much. I love the old patterns so much. I am also looking for a pattern, it is a baby's hat, Irish knit rib, seed stitch diamond shaped ear flaps. If you have anything like that I would be interested. Thanks for the pattern.

  4. Thanks, this is a lovely pattern. Do you have any Irish knit baby hats? I am looking all over for one with cable and seed stitches that has a diamond shaped ear flap. Again, thanks.
