Aunt Kate’s Crochet Book

old book aunt kate

I just looove to order old books from Ebay and drool over past patterns from an almost forgotten era. They are part of our crochet heritage and show us how well crafted crocheted items were in the past.

This little vintage gem is from the 1930’s from John Leng & CO. Ltd. On 42 pages it has a variety of patterns like doilies, lace edgings, jumpers and handbags. Some patterns are illustrated with photos and others come with drawings. Look for yourself:




The advertisements in these book can be pretty hilarous:
