August 1972 - Voting
Hot August Night by Neil Diamond was recorded live at the Greek Theater in Los Angeles. Some of the biggest solar flares were seen and the Summer Olympics were being held in Munich.
Top 40 songs included
The bestselling fiction book was Jonathan Livingston Seagull by Richard Bach with The Winds of War by Herman Wouk in second.
The August 1972 Workbasket and Home Arts Magazine had four crochet patterns. You’ll choose between the Place Mat/Hot Plate/Coaster and the Pansy Bouquet.
The Place Mat/Hot Plate/Coaster uses Spinnerin Mardi Gras! Remember that from June?
I think I still have enough left to make at least one of the Place Mats.
The Pansy Bouquet uses Knit-Cro-Sheen in green, shaded lavender and purple. I’m pretty sure I have all of those colors.
Voting will be up until Friday night!

I'm from Minnesota and have been crocheting since 2003. I inherited a box full of Workbasket Magazines from my mother-in-law and became obsessed with the vintage patterns.
