Treasury Tuesday

maRRose - CCC --- Treasury Tuesday, Crochet-Vintage Patterns-04It’s fun to see how “vintage” has quickly become very popular recently.
Especially if you’re a child from the sixties/seventies – like I am – because you see people going wild over things that you just grew up with and at that time never valued as very special of course!

Searching for “vintage crochet patterns” was definitely fun too! It struck me that crochet must have been mainly used as a technique to make clothes some 40/50 years ago.
I did find some patterns for blankets as well, but clothing was clearly the thing to crochet and I have to admit that some patterns made me smile broadly – the shorts really cracked me up :).

Also, I’ve seen a lot of crochet tops in high fashion stores as of lately and I can see this dress being on display as well …’s one of my two favorites this week, as is the granny square blanket – you truly can’t beat a good old granny.
