As a surprise, the previous owner of this pattern stapled the original mail order ad from the newspaper. Given us that little bit of history was indeed very sweet and something I wish all of you readers do ... attach a little history to your patterns. (hint, hint ... a picture would be nice!)
Just 50 cents, plus first class postage, back in December of 1968. I bet they sold plenty of them.
I've listed this pattern, Mail Order 711, in PDF format in my shop, should you be interested. There are, of course, dozens and dozens of other Crochet Afghan Patterns,
Thanks for dropping by,
