Knitting Crochet Patterns, Mohair Fashions, Sweaters Shawls Coats & Clarks Book 147

This vintage pattern booklet by Coats and Clark, Book 147, titled Mohair Fashions to Knit and Crochet, contains a nice assortment of sweaters and coats.    This booklet was issued in 1964 as part of their C&C Red Heart Mohcora promotion.    (Booklet now in public domain).   All 12 patterns are outer wear, sweaters, coats, shawls, for both men and women, as well as one beret.   Most of the patterns are knitting; 2 are crochet; one requires both.      Here, let me show you.   

 The front cover gives us a color preview of a sweater and a coat.  

This is patterns pictured on the cover.   We have a crocheted coat, sized Small, Medium and Large, as well as a Knitted Cardigan (with the marvelous collar), that is also sized Small, Medium and Large.  

 This Womans Knitted Pullover is lovely piece !   It is Sized 10, 12, 14, 16 & 18.   The pattern also references a separate pattern for a womans dickey, which, I'm assuming, is the big of teal blue we see at her neckline.
The Mans Knitted Cardigan is an equally distinguished sweater, sizes Small (36/38), Medium (40/42) and Large (44/46).

 The 'Turtle Neck' on this pattern is certainly not enough description for this marvelous neck/collar.   It's also a Cable Pullover.   It is Knitted and Sized 10, 12, 14, and 16.   
The Crocheted Shawl is perfect for those 'a little bit cool' evenings!   To complete it, you also need a couple snap fasteners or buttons.   The shawl in one-size.

The Boat Neck on this Man's Pullover Sweater gives it a refined look.    This is a knitting pattern and is sized for chest 38, 40, 42 and 44. 
The womans stole is soft and delicate in appearance.   It is also knitted and is one-size.  

This set is also shown on the back cover in color.   The womens knitted Channel Jacket is sized 12, 14, 16 and 18. 
The mens V-Neck pullover is also knitted and sized for chest 38, 40, 42 and 44. 


Here's a classic duo; a coat and a cardigan.     The V-Neck, front buttoned cardigan is knitted, with crocheted edges.    It is sized small (30-32), medium (34-36), large (38-40).

The knitted Raglan Coat (with marvelous collar) is also sized small (30-32), medium (34-36), large 38-40).

This is a knitted V-Neck Pullover Sweater.   The varigated yarn used in this sweater forms its own design as you knit so that each sweater is truly an original design.  Note - the sleeves continue up to form the yoke.   This pattern is sized 10, 12, 14, 26 (for bust sizes 30 - 36).

The only hat in the book makes an appearance here in the stylish piece - the Knitted Beret.   
This pattern is available in Free Patterns/Tutorials 

And, on the back page, a color photo of the above mens sweater and womens jacket.   

Overall, at least in my opinion, a really nice group of sweater, coat and shawl sweaters are contained here.   No fluff projects to fill the pages, classics start to finish.      

This book is available in my shop in PDF format, if you are interested.     A couple of the patterns are available individually (in PDF format), as noted below the respective picture   

Thanks for dropping by,
