Quick Tricks in Crochet From 1950

From the makers of Clark's and JP Coats threads, Quick Tricks in Crochet has some of the most extraordinary thread patterns you'll see anywhere. There are hats, bags, jewelry, and even shoes, along with beautiful items for the home. Some of the more unusual items include nut cups for parties, and a doll shade pull, a pattern for a flower dress for a small plastic doll. Flower patterns are lovely and detailed.

  1. Cute! I love how vintage crochet looks!

  2. Look at those daffodils decorating the hanger...how cute are those? I can see them on a brides table in the spring.
