Knitting Crochet Patterns, Timesaver Designs, Coats Clarks Book 187

Here is Coats and Clark's Book No 187.  It was issued back in 1968 and contains a nice variety of sweaters and pullovers; mostly for her and all on the bulky side (using large size knitting needles and crochet hooks).   There's also some hats, a shawl and two afghans.    And, to be fair, they even included a sweater for him.   The majority of the patterns are knitted, some with crochet finish.   A couple are all crochet.

Here's a photo-journal of the book, for your viewing pleasure .....

And, last but not least, the back cover featuring three of the patterns in color. 

Some nice patterns in here, all very representative of their time period .... 1968.    And, some still retain fashion appeal in the 2010s.   

I've listed a number of the patterns in my shop, as identified by the links under the pictures.   There are two freebees up there as well.  

I hope you enjoyed the photo journal. 

Thanks for dropping by,
