I love vintage patterns. I have a large collection of both knitting and crochet patterns and I love looking through them for inspiration. Actually making an item from the written instructions in those booklets however can be quite a challenge. Especially this particular pattern. One of the reasons I choose to recreate this one was because it was barely more than a sketch and a paragraph of instructions. That's it! I was curious to see what it was going to be.
The pattern is part of a publication from Australia entitled Busy Fingers VOL 1 NUMBER 1.
Most of the patterns in this booklet are for knitting but this caught my eye in the corner. This is the original pattern:
There isn't a date anywhere in the booklet but I am guessing this is from the 1950s.
I tried to stay as faithful as I could to the original. You can download my version on Ravelry & Craftsy. It's a free pattern!
