I’ve updated the web site with a new page about another old crochet book: The Star Yoke Book, published by the American Thread Company in 1921. There are some gorgeous vintage crochet patterns in this book; most of the patterns are for crocheted nightgown yokes. One yoke is intricate Irish crochet; some others are filet crochet. There are also some knitting and tatting patterns too. My favorite photo from the entire book is a lacy ribbon trimmed knit camisole. Here’s a picture of it:
I just added a new page to antique-crochet.com which features detailed information about the pattern book pictured above. It’s Star Needlework Journal Vol. 9, No. 4, and it was originally published in 1924. This blog post only gives you a peek at the contents; on the new web page I have included lots more photos, plus a detailed listing of patterns and projects that were contained in the book. This one is a real gem for crochet enthusiasts, because a fair amount of this issue’s contents are crochet patterns.
