So, what do you think? Too much variety within one book?
When looking through this book, I came up with two questions to put on 'My Wondering' List.
- Was woven crochet really introduced in 1957, and
- Where did ladies purchase these magazines ... checkout lane at the grocery or in sewing shops, or ?
I've listed a number of the patterns above individually as noted by the links under the pictures.
