Crocheted accessories based on vintage patterns are always unique, with a retro-chic flair and timeless design. So I was inspired by the beautiful work of Magda to create a cotton scarf using the vintage fan ripple stitch by Janis Cortese. My attempt is to use the vintage pattern as an edge and change the core pattern of the scarf.. let's see how is coming along!
Searching in the blogosphere I found Wendy's amazing archive of wonderful free vintage crochet and knitting patterns scattered on the web. In this collection you'll find vintage-inspired free patterns listed from the 1800's to the 1970's stopping at every era in between supplied with beautiful pictures.
