About Vintage Crochet

The front cover of the Vintage Crochet book.

Vintage Crochet builds on the success of Vintage Knits (2022) and features vintage patterns from Australian publications such as the Australian Women’s Weekly and the Australian Woman’s Mirror. The book presents a curated selection of patterns from these publications from as early as 1888, tried and tested to suit the needs of the modern day crocheter. The book contains instructions for a variety of vintage garments, accessories, toys and homewares. Each pattern will be accompanied by illustrations from the original publication and modern 
photographs of the newly-crochet piece. The occasional text boxes trace social, cultural and historical threads connected to crochet such as the history of the ‘granny square’, finger crocheting, significant Australian patternmakers and more.

Tapping into the trend for everything vintage, as well as the ‘handmade revolution’ and resurgence of crochet, this book will bring style and joy to any modern crocheter.
