March will have patterns from just one magazine; the Good Housekeeping Needlecraft Spring-Summer 1974. I found it at a used bookstore in Fergus Falls called Biffley's & Bookmark. My lovely mother-in-law bought it for me along with a few other Workbasket magazines.
This magazine has so many fun 1970s projects. I pulled three crocheted hats that I'll share during the month but for now, I want to share some of the other awesome projects in the magazine.
This photo has all of these items that there are directions for:
There are sewing patterns and cute crocheted kids outfits.
This cute crocheted beach outfit:
Knitted and crocheted swimwear:
And this grouping of bazaar projects:
So many fun things! I could do an entire post on just the advertisements in this magazine. This one is for American Thread yarn.
Next week I'll have the first of the three crocheted hat patterns I found in the magazine. It's an adult hat that is styled in a very 70s way but if it works it's a classic hat that could be work today.
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.
