Knit Geometric Afghan Pattern Variations

This one is special - it is a mail order delight - Alice Brooks, Vintage 1939.

When I obtained possession of this pattern, it had this advertising page clipped to it.   I love that.  

The knitted afghans are made of 5 inch squares that are overcast together.  The changing directions gives it that greater degree of contrast. 

  The squares can then be arranged to form four different afghans.  
The first two are in two color combinations and the second two are four color designs.  That's the shame of black and white photos; but what do I want from 1939.  

The paper was fragile and yellowed, but I was able to restore it to a clean crisp PDF document.   If you'd like to give it a try, it is available in my shop.     There are, of course, a number of other knit afghan patterns, as well. 

Thanks for dropping by, 


  1. Hello nice collection! I'm after crochet patte7362 I see you have a picture of it but do you have the actual pattern?

  2. Hi, at this current time, I do not have that pattern. There is a page up in the right hand column - Design Series - that lists all the patterns that I do have.

    If you don't find it right away, check back periodically as I frequently add to these patterns.

    Thank you for your compliment.
