Vintage Crochet Inspiration

I've been collecting a pretty massive set of old-school crochet books from the 1950s, 60s, and 70s. There are so many cool stitches and patterns, that I just can't seem to get enough. In June, I'll be giving a few of these special collections away ;) (stay tuned).

I've also been trolling the internet for some vintage crochet inspiration and I defintely want to share that with you right now! Enjoy :)


  1. Ooooh, man - I *love* vintage crochet books!! I'm always searching for them when I thrift. These are awesome!

  2. Ooh - love these vintage books / designs! Where have you been finding the books that you get?

  3. I have been having A LOT of luck with our local used book store. They have been carrying collections of needle art books (where the series has patterns for knitting, crocheting, cross stitch, etc. all in one). I also ALWAYS look at the thrift store whenever I go. This time of year is the best to go thrifting.. since everyone is cleaning! If I see a good one online, I'll buy it... but I like the thrill of the hunt!
