Those patterns are timeless. Congratulations on the great find. :thumbsup: I have a few older pattern books and love them.

Thats so cool! I've only found one old pattern, and they were mittens from Elenor Rosevelt. Those are the mittens I failed at.

The inside of the cover is 1967! I'm gonna try the "red cable hat" on the far left, as soon as I can "blow up" the pat instructions about 200% as the book is written quite small:hug:

Wonderful! Enjoy knitting those, and if you ever feel tempted to share.....would love to join you in a KAL. I like the hat, the slipper....heck, all of those!

I have a number of those Coats and Clark pattern books. They used to sell them in Woolworths when I worked there after school around 69-70. I still have a pineapple pattern tablecloth to finish from one of those booklets. I'm just not much into crochet right now.

:shock: OMG! I HAD THAT BOOK!! In fact, it was one of the very first books I ever had about knitting! I made the mock-cable hat (blue hat on the back page) and the embroidered mittens! And I remember trying to make the cabled slipper socks (blue with red and white cables on the front page), but couldn't figure it out! After all, I was only about 12 and no one else in my family could help me!

What memories!

Holy crap... those blue flamed boot things... sooooo awesome... I'm gonna faint... If you're not willing to share for free, I'd gladly buy a copy of the pattern from you! And those would be the project that I would knit for myself! :inlove: Whaddya say?

Grrreat find!!!

BTW, you've inspired me; I searched "vintage knitting patterns" on ebay and I think I need to put the computer down for a bit. Wow.

I love anything VINTAGE. For purely nostalgic reasons, I buy Vintage straights & circs off Ebay. I particularly love the old packaging, too! It is so "sigh" when you see a price sticker on a set of old circs that says 29 cents. Sigh.

Cheley, thanks! And Artlady, I agree.
Knitting never goes out of style!
