Great small crochet project - free pattern

I love small projects. Here is a vintage crochet pattern for a curtain pull. 

You can use these for their intended purpose to lower a curtain or window shade. They also look pretty hanging in a window as a group. There are many more designs here at PurpleKitty as well as some wonderful vintage potholders!

Enjoy, Debby
