Rug Yarn Bazaar, To Crochet Knit, Coats Clarks Book 184

This booklet was put out in 1968 by Coats and Clark's to promote their O.N.T. line of Rug Yarns.   It's titled Rug Yarn Bazaar and contains 18 patterns to knit or crochet a variety of items, all, of course, which use Rug Yarn.   I suppose many of these items were typically bazaar items in the 1960's  ....  thus the title Bazaar.    Here are not only rugs, but sweaters, bags, slippers, little plaques and such.   A bit of this and that, you mightt say, with no central theme other than rug yarn.  (note: there are 18 pictures here; if you have a slow connection, hang in there and you'll get a preview of all the patterns)

The end ... or, in other words, the back cover 

A number of the patterns in this book are available in my shop, as noted by the links under the pillow.   Although it is small, I think the Knit Pouch is one of my favorites.   It would be so perfect to hold all those small items.

One more book done, many more to follow !   Thanks for dropping by,
