Novelty Thread Crochet from 1942

Gift Shopping in Crochet, published by the Spool Cotton Company in 1942, features patterns for a host of gift items, including children's toys, motifs, flowers, baskets, pin cushions, and other novelties. There is even a pattern for an American flag (with 48 stars) along with instructions for shopping bags that would be useful today.
