February 27, 2010Vintage Crafty Saturday – Learn To Crochet and Free Coin Purse Pattern
Hello, everyone! I came across a great stack of knitting and crochet books from the 1950’s and 1960’s at my local Salvation Army recently, and I was so excited. Stay tuned for some great sweater and accessory patterns! Until then…well…I have to learn how to knit. And crochet. Luckily, I found this book in with the stack, which is going to teach me knitting, crocheting AND tatting. I have been dying to learn tatting.
Oh, and that scream of frustration you hear is my mom in Wisconsin. She has tried repeatedly to teach me to crochet and the lessons never took. My sister is pretty good at it, but I could just never get the hang of it for some reason. Well, I am serious about it this time, Ma, I swear!
Aaaaaanyway, the book has detailed instructions with pictures, so hopefully this will help me and anyone else out there who is crochet-deficient. And there is even a cute coin purse pattern at the end to try your new skill in. It will probably take me forever to finish something like that. But don’t let that stop you guys!
