BOOK: A Treasury of Crochet Patterns

Treasury of Crochet Patterns

I scored another vintage crochet book for my collection! It’s A Treasury of Crochet Patterns by Liz Blackwell, published in 1971. It’s 213 pages in mostly black and white. This book is put together in a confusing manner. And the “patterns” are more like a stitch dictionary than anything else. Each section is dedicated to a stitch–like DC, SC or clusters. Each one just has a number and not a name. But right in the middle of the numbered patterns, there will be a color section with patterns for squares, and those are numbered separately! All confusion aside there are some motif patterns that I haven’t seen before that I’ll be making, and many of the stitches presented are nice, too. All in all it’s well worth the $4.30 I paid for it (including $3.99 shipping).
