It’s time to begin a new decade in my research into vintage crochet history. We finished up 1930s crochet and now let’s move into the 1940’s, starting, of course, with the first year of the decade. Here’s what I found so far in crochet from 1940.
I’m planning to curate as much crochet history information as possible, decade by decade. My research began with a deep investigation into 1930s crochet, which I’ve collected in year-by-year posts. I thought I’d round up that information in one post today to share everything I now know about crochet in the 1930s!
1939 is the next year up in the 50 Years of Crochet History blog post series. I love curating the history of crochet in this way!
Almost two years ago I started a crochet blog project called 50 Years of Crochet History. I loved researching 1930s crochet to kick that off but let it trail away because the research does take a lot of time. However, I think it’s important to curate that history so I’m resuming the project now. I’ll begin where I left off, looking now at Crochet in 1938.
Remember that I recently introduced you to the reader Flo who shared some of her beautiful crochet work with us?
It’s not a new idea; I found a tutorial for patchwork crochet quilts in a vintage crochet magazine.
I want to take a look back at all of the amazing things that were shared in crochet last year. Here were the posts related to vintage / retro crochet.
