  1. In about 1978 I made myself a very simple Tunisian crochet cotton jacket. It was a pattern in a magazine...maybe one of those women's magazines, or maybe a crochet magazine? I cut out the pattern and mounted it to a piece of cardboard, but it's been lost over the years. The pattern was really nothing more than several rectangles sewn together; no special joining or fancy stitches. It had one (wooden?) button near the neck to hold it closed. I believe the colors used in the photo were stripes of light blue and beige, although I could be wrong. During my many moves, the jacket itself has disappe
  2. Pattern: Vintage Daisy Potholder by Maggie Weldon 2010. I used worsted weight yarns to increase the size. Favorite colors of recipient. Will buy a 16 inch round pillow insert before closing.
  3. This was a challenge for me. I found this pattern in a booklet (Coats Sewing Group #920 Bold Crochet Motifs) a friend gave to me a while back. It took a couple tries to start. It uses UK stitch terminology, but US measurements. There are no specific instructions to actually join the motifs, only instructed to follow the photo. Simply titled "Coffee Table Mat". I chose to make a smaller doily, just to see if I could. Yay!
  4. My grand mother crocheted this tablecloth for me in 1973 when I graduated from college. I would like to know what the pattern name is and try to find a copy of this pattern. I am trying to put together all the history I can gather on crocheted work that I have, for future generations to know as much as possible about each piece. Thank you.
  5. I am trying to figure out the vintage "Double Buckle Slipper Pattern/No. 4706" from freevingtagecrochet.com. The instructions for the Upper Section, Row 4, read: "Work in s c, decreasing...2 sts on each side of toe (space evenly)." What does that mean? It is not the center of the toe section. It says "center of toe" when working those stitches. Do I just guess where the big toe starts and the little toe ends and dec 2 sts there? Thanks for your help.
  6. So I'm working on the back piece of a UK vintage dress pattern and am at the point where I shape the armholes but can't understand what I'm supposed to do. It's a straight piece with 80 stitches and it says Slip stitch across 6 tr, 3 ch = 1 tr, work to last 5 tr, turn (Can't figure out if I'm supposed to repeat the slip stitches at the end) Slip stitch across next 3 stitches, 3 ch = 1 tr, work at last 2 stitches, turn (2 stitches decreased at end of each row) Can someone put this in US terms that will make sense to me? Thanks!
  7. Hello, not exactly a new member but new to the posting part so here goes nothin' So I have some questions involving a vintage dress pattern I am making, In this pattern the dress is worked in one piece, meaning there is no sewing the pieces together afterwards which is great! One downside I've encountered is after finishing the bodice, it seems to be a way inelastic which makes getting in and out of it a 2 person job. I had the great idea of installing a zipper but since I've already finished the bodice I have no idea how to do so without possibly ruining the whole garment. I've thought
