Kentucky Rug Yarns, Volume 5

This booklet, Kentucky Rug Yarns, Volume 5, has no copyright markings to represent age, however, appears to be from the 1950's.  The book was especially prepared for Kentucky Soft Spun Rug Yarn, however, you will need to substitute to yarns of your choice as this company is now defunct.  The book has a nice variety of (what I'm assuming are) beginner crochet patterns.   The patterns include rugs, hats, pillows, afghans, and more. 

Here, let me show you what's in the book ....
Kentucky Rug Yarns 
 This adorable young lady is modeling the beret and muff pattern !

 Balanced Rug measures approx. 22" x 35".   This design is worked in single crochet with a visual color chart.
 Curler Bag .... YOU KNOW YOU NEED ONE OF THESE !   Okay, maybe not; but I'm sure you could find a variety of other uses.   This is an easy design in puff stitch.  

 Puppet Pot Holder

 Shell -- Make it in your favorite School colors !   There's a scarf, as well.

 Shaded Rug has a double strand of yarn throughout.  

 Rug with Border Design

 The Shell Stitch Cover, measuring 20.5 by 31"

 TV Stack Pillow, measuring 20" by 20" x 4".

 The End .... or better know as, The Back Cover

 There is actually more patterns in the book than the picture shows, such as a belt, dish clothes, bridge table cover, pillows, stocking hat, etc.    I've added a couple of the patterns, as designated by links under the pictures to the patterns that are available in my shop. 

This booklet is clearly marked Vol 5.   I did a few Google searches looking for earlier or later volumes and found absolutely nothing.   I did learn, however, in an interesting article, that they have gone out of business.   

Thanks for dropping by,
