I recharted this dog chart from a chart in Alphabets in Crochet by Emma Farnes, Including Small Filet Designs, No copyright date in book, circa 1920 or earlier.

How long does copyright last? See US Government Copyright Office web site at http://www.loc.gov/copyright. Under "Publications" heading, click on "Information Circulars": Circular 15 (Renewal of Copyrights), Circular 15a (Duration of Copyrights) and Circular 15t (Extension of Copyright Terms) will be helpful.

Please be courteous and don't post on your own web site (or on an Internet Bulletin Board) the actual chart that is on this page. Instead, you are welcome to post the URL of this page so that anyone who would like the chart may come here for themselves and benefit from everything else this site has to offer. Thank you.

Please extend the same courtesy to other webmasters when you are at other sites on the Web. You will like to have the same done for you when you are the one with the work and expense of putting items on your own web pages. Thank you.

Printing This Page: I've had requests for hints for printing the patterns from this site. After clicking on File at the top of your Internet browser, you can choose Print Preview to see ahead of time what part of the page is going to print for you. With many newer printers, this gives you a printing page with no ads included. But if your printer only shows the ad at the top of the page when you try to print, try clicking somewhere on a blank area of the center portion of the page (the pattern portion), then click on File at the top of your Internet browser and choose Print. Having clicked on the pattern part of the page first tells your printer what part of the page you want to print. If there is a selection showing such as "Print Selected Frame Only" in the printer box that pops up, choose that option. If needed, there is also a Printer-Friendly Page for you to use to print from, if you prefer (you may still need to click on the pattern portion on the Printer-Friendly page before choosing the Print command on your browser, if your printer only prints out the ad at the top of that page, when you try to print out the pattern).
