6137 - Roses-in Bloom is featured on the front cover. This afghan measures approx. 50 x 70 inches (including fringe). It is created using Knitting Worsted and a Bone Afghan Hook No 6. Diagrams are included for the floral embroidery.
(Footnote: This pattern was also released by The National Needlecraft Bureau as a leaflet under the same number - 6143).
No 6141 - Petal Drops Afghan graces the back cover. The lovely piece measures approx. 45 x 70 inches. It is knitted with 1 pair of No 5 Knitting Pins and Red Heart Knitting Worsted.
This booklet gives us eight crochet and two knitting patterns; 10 in total. This booklet was issued as a promotion for the Chadwicks Red Heart Knitting Worsted Yarns, which you may have guessed since each pattern calls for it specifically. I don't know if this yarn is still manufactured (after all, 53 years is quite a long time), however, I'd think you'd be able to locate a suitable equivalent.
I'd have to say that my favorite would be the Rhythms in Cable; it's closest to our dark New Orleans type style we seem to consistently decorate. But, I don't mind if you happen to like the others more.
I've listed the patterns in my shop, just follow the links under the pictures, should you be interested. Or, should you not be interested in any of the patterns, I hope that you enjoyed browsing the patterns and will visit again sometime.
Thanks for dropping by,
