Free Vintage Crochet Patterns Gifts
Welcome to my getting ready for the holiday gift making holiday season with this Free Vintage Crochet Patterns update.
Please accept my apology it’s been a busy summer with two grand boy’s born, my summer road trip with my middle grandson and a few health issues, that I’m working on.
Are you familiar with the old magazine “Smart Crochet”, I have many and I thought that I would share this 50’s issue with everyone?
Edition 10 of Smart Crochet has a lot of great easy to crochet pieces that should make your finger’s tingle with joy.
I’ve left a lot of the advertisements but all the pages are accounted for and in some cases I will include a direct link to the page for instruction.
