Jimmy Carter is president. We were still heading to the movie theater to see “Star Wars: Episode IV – A New Hope” that had been released in May.

The non-Fiction bestseller was Your Erroneous Zones by Dr. Wayne W. Dyer.

Workbasket Magazine says sunbonnets are back in for mother and daughter and they had five crochet patterns. This outfit on the cover isn't one of them but it is a great photo of 1977 hair and makeup.
Patterns in this month’s issue include a child’s Vest, a flower motif doily, a hairpin lace stole, a girls dress and a one skein hat.
This month you’ll choose between the One Skein Hat and the Girl's Crochet Dress. Both use worsted weight yarn.
Which one would you like to see made?
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.
