Description: A small booklet with a number of household linens: table cloth, tray cloth, runner, "luncheon set", place mats square or round, and octagonal centrepiece. There are different designs, with some based on the same motif as shown on the cover.
I beleive these yarns knit to a more or less 4ply equivalent but have a different feel to the yarn. Lyscordet is more of a crochet cotton and Stalite more of a soft knitting cotton.
