“Chair Sets ~ Book 181” this is a pattern book for crochet chair sets and runners. Published in 1942 by The Spool Cotton Company, New York, New York, the booklet measures 7½ x 10¾ inches with 15 pages. It is in good condition with some wear to the covers.
Back in the 1930’s, ’40’s and 1950’s every home had living room furniture protected by chair sets while they were doing double duty by being decorative. Practical and pretty, it was easier to launder a chair set than to clean upholstery. The pattern book has many lovely patterns, including Bamboo, Inheritance, Field of Wheat, Butterfly and Rose, Spread Eagle, Block Party, Blossom Time, Colonnade, Memories, Radiant Rose, Pineapple Fan and Color Spree.
