More vintage crochet

From my vintage book stash. These are 3 edgings from Star Book No. 81, Edgings which has crochet and tatted edging for handkerchiefs, pillows and towels.
A good modern use for edging patterns is using a medium to worsted weight yarn and doing lengths as scarves or edging a scarf or stole in a sport weight.

I didn't type out the patterns, just scanned them, and assembled them into pdfs with the pictures of the pieces. I was originally just planning to do the pineapple edging, but since that pattern was a page with the other two, I decided to do all 3. Both pdfs are one page.

The pineapple edging.

I put the green and yellow edgings in the same pdf.

Of course.. I really should do more of the disembodied head patterns!
