I’ve always loved antique and vintage patterns. I’m currently collecting digital copies of Godey’s Lady’s Book and hard copies of Needle Craft Magazine which ran from 1909 to 1941
I want to do this crochet jacket from the Nov 1864 Godey’s Lady’s Book -
But, I’m wondering what would be a good yarn for a crochet jacket? Also since I don’t wear hoop skirts, should I just crochet down to the length I want with no increases?
