{Anna Burda Crocheted Table Topper}

From the Anna Burda's June 1988 magazine this hand crocheted table topper must have been made by my friend Marianne's  Mom, in Germany. Whatever its background, I received it as a gift and I'm very pleased with this linen and crocheted treasure. Have a look...


In our veranda on the oak coffee table with some blooming hyacinths on January 18...


No doubt that Marianne's Mom did crochet it after this Anna Burda pattern from June 1988!
Just lovely...


Pure linen is being crocheted around in a very perfect way with an impeccable steady hand it seems.
Guess Marianne's Mom will be smiling down from heaven when she sees it still is being loved!

  1. I look at the lovely table cloths that have been crocheted and think of all the hours some person lovingly put into it.
    Your cloth looks lovely.

  9. Ach ja de Burda, dat is lang geleden dat ik daar in gekeken heb, inderdaad in de tachtiger jaren. Knap om dat linnen er zo rimpeloos aan het haakwerk vast te maken.

    1. Beste Marianne,
      Jazeker het is ontzettend knap gedaan en zó'n mooie even hand. Het is een kunst om een even haakwerk te krijgen door niet té los en ook niet té vast te haken.

  22. Dear Mariette, I am just back from your previous post, as the comments are now closed. I took my time reading all the information about the taste-vin from your book. I did know about taste-vin (and the ancient greek krater, of course) but not so many details as you provided. Your taste-vin is so beautiful as is your pewter vase. I do not own any, but I have two pewter scottish quaichs, although I know that their traditional use as a visitor's welcome or farewell cup by proud clan chiefs is different from the one of the taste-vin.
    Hugs to you,
