Antique pattern site
I came across this site the other day and wanted to share it with everyone. These are antique public domain craft books with lace, tatting, bead work, knitting and crochet. I found the American Red Cross World War 1 patterns especially interesting.

Here's another antique book from 1918. It's written like a story book to teach children how to knit and crochet.

It's hard to believe The Crinoline Lady crochet book is old enough to go PD! I used to love to work those patterns...
