These old magazines were really an extension of advertising. The yarn/thread brands would place their advertisements, and the majority of the patterns listed were using these specific brands. Being 1952, the majority of materials are discontinued. Where possible, I've started putting in some links to cross-reference what the yarns were.
As typical, the magazine is divided into categories ... the something for everyone approach. Well, almost anyway -- afghans, cloths and bedspreads were excluded. Here are a few of my favorites.
Ribbed Sleeveless Knit Pullover has summer fun written all over it.
Knit Two Piece Set for Baby.
Pinwheel Crochet Rug is 30 inches
Mans Basket Weave Cardigan for the classic look
Knot Stitch Crochet Stole for a romantic evening look
My copy of the magazine is quite fragile and I was pleased to work up fairly decent photos from the little clips given. There are other patterns from the magazine scattered here and there in the shop as well.
Thanks for dropping by,
