Thread Crochet from 1952

This 1952 book is part of the Quick Tricks in Crochet series, published by The Spool Cotton Company, distributor of popular thread brands JP Coats, Clark's, and Red Heart. Book has an amazing series of patterns for thread items popular at the time, such as pot holders, hot plate mats, hats, and soap holders. There are also patterns for aprons, bibs, slippers, and other novelties.
