Crochet Through Time: 32 Vintage Patterns


Welcome crocheters, step into my time machine. I thought it might be nice to take a little trip back in time to get vintage patterns [3] your mother or grandmother fawned over. As a bit of a vintage fanatic, I knew that it would be too overwhelming if I didn’t focus in on a specific time period.

So today we’re going back to 3 of my favorite decades: the ’40s, ’50s, and ’60s. I’m head over heels for this time frame. From the movies (Singing in the Rain, Casablanca, The Good, the Bad, and the Ugly, I could go on and on) to the clothes (Sweater sets? Yes, please!), I just love this time period.

While we may not be able to actually go back in time (I’ve checked), we can at least crochet our way through time. We could start with something like the Victoriana Rose Wreath Afghan [4], which is stunning and perfect for any home that’s a little more traditional.

We could then move on to the Honeycomb Afghan [5], a personal favorite of mine, and end with something Hi-Fi Companions Afghan [6], which reminds me of small beaded strands of sea glass. What are we waiting for? Let’s get crocheting!
