Those patterns are timeless. Congratulations on the great find. 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.

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

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.
