Vintage Crochet Knit Books

I seem to have a growing collection of Vintage Crochet and Knitting books.   I've been scanning these, as time permits, and putting them in my shop in PDF format.  (Only those in the public domain).   I've also been doing individual blog posts on them, which show the pattern pictures and a brief description.   I like the idea that folks can see what is within each book so they know whether or not they want to purchase a copy, as well as the enjoyment of looking at these old pattern books.

So, I've decided to take this one step further, and start a listing of the books.   Wouldn't it be great if there was an online directory of some kind that showed all of these books.     Well, I certainly don't have them all, but as I come across them, I'll continue to add.      (Each link will take you to the book here in this blog)

Here's what I have so far.
