Dans l'édition de cette semaine de 50 Années de crochet Histoire nous allons jeter un regard sur le monde de crochet dans 1933.

1933 Crochet Resource

I want to give a shout out to Australian crocheter Jodiebodie who left a great comment on my 1930 edition of this series, dire:

“Une source importante de modèles et des conseils pour les ménages en Australie pour beaucoup du 20ème siècle est “The Australian Women’s Weekly” qui a été publié la première fois en 1933. (Je sais que vous n'êtes pas à 1933 encore, mais pensaient que vous pouvez trouver des informations utiles). Vous devriez être capable de trouver que archivé à la Bibliothèque nationale d'Australie trop. Always worth a look because the other articles in the magazine provides a cultural/social/historical context for the patterns.

I mention this now, évidemment, because this is the week that we’re looking at 1933 crochet!

1933 Crochet style

There was definitely a blend of styles in crochet at this time, with some emphasis on fully crocheted garments but also some continued interest in using crochet as embellishment on accessories and home decor items. Several newspapers, like the Toledo News-Bee, published a pattern for adding crochet edging à la plaine des gants de coton blanc à l'aide de fils de coton mercerisé de crochet, suggérant cela comme un grand cadeau pour les filles diplôme école.

En fait, la plupart des articles qui sortent en crochet à cette époque ont été orientés vers les filles de l'école secondaire ou un collège d'âge, semblant suggérer que beaucoup de filles de cet âge prenaient le métier. Le Ellensburgh Capital donne une bonne description de certains du style de l'époque, dans un article qui dit blouses crochet de coton sont à la mode. Il commence:

“N'aimeriez-vous pas juste de posséder un ou plusieurs de ceux à puce, frais, mercerisé coton blouses main-crochet attractifs et très pratiques qui boutiques spécialisées haut de gamme sont à l'affiche saison, à porter avec le linge maintenant-si-vogueisn (en particulier de lin noir) ou piquer costumes?”

1933 Crochet Patterns

1933 Crochet Livres

 50 Years of Crochet History: 1933

La 1933 Lux livre: Tous les derniers à tricoter & Crochet Styles (via Bibliothèque nationale d'Australie). De ce que je peux dire Lux était une marque de livres de tricot et crochet pattern qui ont commencé à venir autour de ce temps et a continué dans les années 1950. Ils semblent avoir sortir chaque année, même si je trompe peut-être à ce sujet.

vintage crochet rag rugs 400x327 50 Years of Crochet History: 1933

But my favorite find from this year was Grandmother Clark’s How to Make Hand made Crocheted Rag Rugs 50 Years of Crochet History: 1933. Je n'avais aucune idée qu'il y aurait un livre sur les tapis crochet de chiffon de cette époque. But then I did some more research and found out that there were a lot of patterns for rag rugs, crocheted and otherwise, from this era, which I suppose makes sense since the Depression Era did require upcycling material in this way. It’s really expensive to get your hands on an original copy of this book but I’ve seen some folks on Etsy, comme eVINTAGEpatterns, selling digital versions, which is allowed because the book is in the public domain (according to the seller).

1933 Crochet Designer

There was a book that came out in 1933, which is now out of print, appelé New crochet designs and their many uses 50 Years of Crochet History: 1933. The author of that book was Anne Champe Orr, and I was a little curious about who she was so I did some research into her. I learned that she started producing various needlework designs in 1915 after starting out with a career in art. She didn’t limit herself to crochet designs; she created designs in knitting, broderie, point de croix, lacemaking (including tatting), quilting and rugmaking. She actually originally started by self-publishing these patterns and then eventually she got hired by a number of different companies and publications. Want to know a strange fun fact about her? She actually wasn’t a needleworker herself! Orr passed away in 1946 but there was a huge revival of her work in the 70s and 80s when several reprint publications came out aggregating and sharing her designs. Heirloom Crochet has links to some of her work.

1933 Crochet Patent

People were trying diligently to create a machine that could crochet to replace thetediousnessof handwork and make the craft more efficient. À ce jour, there is no crochet machine. Dans 1933 un patent was filed for a machine that was intended to be able to crochet “une gaine autour d'un noyau”. I have no idea what happened with that plan other than that the patent was filed in 1934 and issued the following year.

The only other crochet-related patents from 1933 that I found were one for a yarn or thread holder that would be able to hold crochet thread and one for a shoulder strap that could be attached to different garments to hold the shoulders in place, a portion of which it was suggested might be made using crochet.

1933 Crochet Nouvelles

Plusieurs 1933 newspapers, such as the Boston Globe, had ahousehold advicesection that would frequently offer crochet suggestions, such as using a crochet chain to sew the ends of a curtain together.

The Schenectady Gazette continued to announce crochet club meetings in 1933, so they must have been going well! (They were mentioned in 1932 issues as well).

Popular Science had an article about building ship models that mentioned that crochet hooks are good tools to use for certain things, saying for example thata small crochet hook with the hook ground off makes a handy awl”.

But the big crochet-related news of 1933 seems to be that there was a huge needleworker strike! The New York Times has an article (that you have to pay to see in full) explaining that The Bonnaz Embroidery Workers Union, an affiliate of the International LadiesGarment Workers, had a 100% response rate to its call for a strike and so 15000 workers went on strike. I didn’t purchase the article so I don’t have the full details, but I do see a snippet through Google that mentions that the workers on strike wereembroidery workers and crochet headers”. This effectively put a halt on the dress industry at the time and was therefore a big deal. All I’ve been able to find out about the reason for the strike is that the union wanted aban on home work”.

Recherche Fun

One of the things I found on Etsy when doing the research for this post was a crocheted version of The Invisible Man by chubbyninjacrafts. Bien que le livre est plus, la version cinématographique de The Invisible Man remonte à 1933.

Next up is, bien sûr, 1934 crochet! Look for it on the blog next week.

I love these Depression era patterns. The soap promotion is hilarious!

Regarding the 1933 Lux livre, Lux was a brand of soap. They made soap flakes for laundry washing and was still being sold in the last 16 ans (I know I have bought some while my children were little and my son is 18 maintenant!). I see on the front cover "This book must not be sold: it is only available to customers who purchase three large size packets of Lux". Crochet and knitting must have been popular enough at the time to be an incentive or inducement to buy.

When I was a child in Europe there were laundry powders that would have coupons on the boxes to be sent away in exchange for various items. I found it amusing that I have only ever seen this with laundry products!

Anyway I thought I would explain what Lux was for readers outside of Australia. Is this brand seen anywhere else?
