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.     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.   

Mohair Fashions To Knit and Crochet 
 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.   
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.      

Thanks for dropping by,
