The Workbasket issue we’ll be choosing from this month has six crochet patterns. This is a very 1960's cover with the hair and knit buttoned cardigan:
Any of the last four could have been chosen this month. They’re all small projects but I narrowed it down to the Pillbox Hat and the Kitten Napkin Holder. The napkin holder will require some extra work if it’s chosen. It says “The napkin holder frame can be purchased from a craft or hobby store” but I can’t find anything similar so I’ll have to create my own if that pattern is chosen.
Let me know which one you think I should make in February!
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. I'm a member of Crochet Twin Cities, the local Crochet Guild.
