Crochet Quote: Back to the 1970’s

Today’s crochet quote comes from the introduction to Candi Jensen’s lovely crochet pattern book titled Candy Crochet: 50 Adorable Designs for Infants and Toddlers.

“After I had my own children, I was inspired to make them one-of-a-kind sweaters that always made them stand out on the playground. It was the early ’70s, when anything was possible and color, texture and especially crochet were in fashion.”

Were you a crocheter in the 1970’s? Or was your mom? What do you remember about it?
