1950's potholder patterns

I received this in an email today from oombawkadesigncrochet. It's labeled as public domain. I thought some of you might enjoy looking at them. I hesitate to call them antique patterns, but definitely dated.

I love vintage patterns and in fact that's what I mostly use for the doilies I make, BUT you might want to change this so you are linking to the site that hosts the pdf file, as (1) I think it might not be OK to host the directly file here since these are not YOUR design and (unlikely, but not impossible) it could get the Crochetville site owners in copyright trouble (2) because I clicked on it, it is saving itself somewhere on my computer and now I'm going to have to find where it lives and delete it (which is odd, most PDF files don't do that, or at least I never noticed and there's a pile of them somewhere).  

Also, I think I've seen most if not all of these patterns either on https://www.antiquepatternlibrary.org/index.htm or https://freevintagecrochet.com/ ; the first site organizes by book title or author so you have to do a search for potholders in the description, but the second one organizes by pattern type.

Sorry about that. I've never had one automatically save itself. Definitely don't want to cause any issues--I changed it to a link to the web site. The booklet says it's in the antiquepatternlibrary.

I was not familiar with the pocket/thumb part of these.

I've seen most of these also but never the gingerbread man. When I first saw it, I immediately thought of a ghost! LOL! 

I agree! Makes you wonder why it's not made in brown. Also different with looking like he's dressed, with sleeve and pants markings instead of just buttons on the belly.
