Smart Stoles to Knit and Crochet

I'm taking a short break from fine-tuning the shop to work a few leaflets.

Coats Clarks Leaflet W-547 Smart Stoles

Here we have three pretty stoles, The middle in knitted, the beauty of the left is a combination of knit/crochet and the one on the right is crocheted.   It was when I turned the leaflet to the backside and saw the pattern titles  -- Judy C-154, Deborah C-155 and Donna C-156 that I realized I'd seen this line-up before.

A quick browse around quickly identified it  ... the models and the naming conventions line up with Coats and Clark's Book 296  -  Festive Stoles and Blouses.     In this booklet, the pattern numbers start up with No C-157.

This leaflet / book combination is just a bit out of the norm.  Most often, pattern leaflets carry the same number designation as the corresponding book.  And .. the leaflet pattern is typically a design from the book itself. 

I wonder, if perhaps, this Leaflet W-547 was positioned near the Pattern Book 296 as a promotion. 
A question I'll never know the answer too (this is vintage 1952 ... older than me).   Perhaps one of you know.

Thanks for dropping by.
