Vintage Crochet presents classic patterns sourced from historical newspapers and magazines. Each pattern has been tested and updated, with modern yarn and sizing tips. A handy difficulty rating means you can choose the projects that are right for you. If your preschooler likes to party (like it's 1888), there's a cute dress in Tunisian crochet from Launceston's The Colonist. If you're a flapper at heart, you'll love the 1920s striped waistcoat from The Australian Woman's Mirror. If the 60s make you want to go-go, there are mod collars, a bikini cover-up and a coat with matching pill-box hat, 'the symbol of winter chic' according to The Australian Women's Weekly. As you crochet, learn about the history of granny squares, crochet in art and activism, the original superstar pattern designers of the early twentieth century, amigurumi and more.
