Perhaps the word book is a bit too much to call them, but they were certainly full of gorgeous patterns.
She had bought the books back in 1967-68 when my bigsister was little. She paid 2,85 Danish kroners for each of them, which seems like a ridiculous amount of money today.
A great deal of the patterns are actually much similar to the ones we see today - both the knitted and the crocheted ones.The pink and the blue dresses are so sweet. But perhaps the length had to be adjusted a bit, in order to call them dresses.
And what about this sweet dress? If the colours of the yarn are different, then I can easily see it being worn by a little girl in 2009.
This crocheted sailor suit is however not up to date, but I had to show it to you, because my sister had one of these - I had one too, but mine was made out of fabric (and used to belong to my bigsister).
If you take a closer look at the picture above you can see that the woman is sitting on a stool made out of wickerwork. I had one of those stools as a child and I loved it. I used it for so many things while playing. It was called an Elephant Foot....
My mom and I looked through the books and my mom pointed out all of the things she had made for my sister.
I have borrowed the books for a while. Maybe I will make something from them - there are loads of beautiful things....
