Fleur-de-lis Chart
Suitable for use in many different needlecrafts.

I recharted this from a chart in a 1917 pattern book. I've posted on this site a Fleur-de-lis Crocheted Handbag pattern, where a color design of this chart is crocheted in on the handbag.

Chart is shown here done as a filet crochet design (starting chains given below) but is suitable for many different needlework applications:

Cross stitch on aida cloth, cross stitch on a crocheted single crochet or afghan stitch background, crocheting or knitting the color design in on a piece, needlepoint, loom beadwork or adapted for peyote and other beading techniques, pieced quilt blocks.

Here's an example of the design done with color changes in single crochet. Changing Colors How-To (With Photos), Changing Colors in Crochet (Diagram)

Chart was originally printed in Crochet Design, published in 1917 by M. Heminway & Sons Silk Co. The chart from the book was not a good quality when scanned so I recharted it to make it easier for you to work from.
