Hand-Knits for the Liberated Woman

This Woman's Day Knitting Book from 1972 features lots of pantsuit patterns for the career gal, along with tunics, maxi skirts, jackets, and the lovely Spanish-style shawl on the cover. Great ads too!

For retro crafting books and other vintage goodness, please check my Etsy shop at www.acadiancrochet.etsy.com.


  1. I love all the vintage crochet and knit pics. I'm actually thinking of doing a blog post on a set of vintage handmade doilies that I got from my grandmother. (made by my great aunts) I just need to take a few good photos of them.

  2. Glad you like the pics! I'd love to see your doily collection. Lovely heirlooms are nice to have.
