Knitting Crochet Pattern Accessory Boutique American Thread Star Book 226

This book is all about accessories ...hence the name Boutique.   It contains a nice assortment of scarves and hats, for him and her, along with some stockings, belts and even a vest.   Based on the individual styles, I'd think they would would be from the late 1960s.  This is American Thread, Star Book 226,

Knitted and Crocheted Boutique
 The front cover gives us a heads up to the contents.   In this case, mostly accessories.

 His and Hers Aran Scarf and Hat.  These are knitted.

 This is the Her's Side of the above Aran Scarf and hat.   Her hat has a chin strap.   The set continues with knitted mittens and socks.

 Red, White & Blue.   This is a knitting/crochet pattern.   Create this His and Hers set and let it become your 4th of July standard !

 The Mesh Crochet Knee-High Socks has the fun whimsy going off with the bit of fringe at the top.    These are sized small to medium, medium to large.  
 Looking for some extra attention at an upcoming event .... Well, these just might be the ticket !  Mesh crochet stockings (upper thigh high).    The are also sized small to medium, medium to large.  

Also included here are instructions to make the Knotted Belt.    For fun, try adding in an assortment of beads. 

 Crocheted Scarf and Beret - One size

 This piece if officially called 'The Twenties Flip'.   It's a nice floppy hat, for sure.   It is crocheted with braided trim.    

 Here's a set of wide ski scarves.   One is a Block set and the other is the Two Tone Set.  Both are knitted .   Make them up for 'hers' as well.

 Here's another 'His & Her's potential Scarf Set.  The Barber Shop Stripe and the Hit & Miss.   Both pattern variations include a matching hat.   Both sets are knitted. 

 This is an attractive set - the Mesh Snood and Scarf.   The scarf has just a touch of fringe at the ends.   Both are crochet.    

Although this appears to be a vest in the picture, the Black, White and Woven set is for a Scarf and matching Hat.    This set is crocheted. 

 This pretty little vest is the Gypsy Bolero.   It is crocheted and sized Small, Medium and Large.
 This is a cute accessory - it's the Tassle Belt.  This is a crochet pattern and is One-Size, which fits 10 to 16. 

 This extra wide scarf is a Shell Stitch Stole, which alot of fun fringe at the bottom.   It is crocheted.  

And, the back cover, as is usual for American Thread, is the same as the front cover.    (Helps keep costs down, you think?).

So, that's it ... Knitted and Crocheted Boutique contains an abundance of accessories that just might be the ticket to to warmth or whimsy !   Or, perhaps a little of both.

Hope you enjoyed the photo-journey.

Thanks for dropping by,
