It was close but in the end, the Carnation pattern won by three votes.
This calls for:
This looks pretty easy but I’ve thought that before and run into problems (see the mini-planter). If it turns out to be very easy I’ll either make a few or make the pin cushion. At this point the biggest question I have on this pattern is the hook size. In modern terms a size 3 is 3.25mm hook. Or do they mean size 3 steel hook? That’s a 2.1 mm. I don’t have one of those so I think I’ll start with a B hook. It’s closer to the steel hook size at 2.25mm.
Next week I'll tell you about Aunt Ellen's Club Notes from the May 1949 issue and maybe make the recipe for their "social hour". It's Banana Cake!
