Na edição desta semana da revista 50 Anos de História Crochet vamos dar uma olhada no mundo de crochê em 1936.
1936 Gancho: Favorite Find
My favorite find in 1936 crochet was a fictional story published in The Lewiston Daily Sun that has this lovely description of the protagonist working on some crochet:
“Coralie nodded. She was sitting flat on the floor in the Ash kitchen and she had a small basket filled with bright-colored balls of scraps beside her. Her tongue was caught between her teeth as she labored earnestly with a long wooden crochet hook. Ma Ash peered at her through silver-rimmed spectacles and smiled.
“You’re coming along fine, dearie, she observed.”
Coralie pushed a curl out of her eyes and looked a little distracted. “It seems awfully easy when you do it,” she protested. “You don’t even have to keep your eyes on your stitches. But mine – Do you suppose any one can tell it’s meant for a rug?”
Ah, we’ve all been there, as beginner crocheters and sometimes even when just doing new types of projects as experienced crocheters!
1936 Estilo Crochet
Luvas de rendas de croché também eram populares neste momento; another newspaper advertised the crochet padrão for these for sale:
1936 Técnicas de crochê
One of the things that I noticed that seemed to become popular in 1936 crochet was the use of lace crochet motifs to make a variety of items of different sizes. Por exemplo, uma pattern you could mail away for is described as follows: “With just commonplace string and your trusty crochet hook you can turn out the choice five inch suquares that border this linen cloth so beautifully. A few few squares would make a handsome pillow top, tray cloth, vanity, buffet or chair set. And for supreme beauty a quantity will make a cloth.” Another pattern was for crochet medallions designed to look like tatting that could be combined together to make “lenços, cloths, doilies and chair sets”. And yet another for filet crochet squares was intended for a bedspread but the ad for the pattern noted: “or even in less time, your crochet can run off enough of these simple eight-inch squares for a lacy pillow top, handkerchief case or bureau scarf.”
This pattern that you could send away to purchase in 1936 was for a half-embroidered, half-crocheted bedspread design; the crochet was filet crochet
Many of these patterns were for filet crochet, a technique that continued to be very popular in this year for many different items, especially items for the home. Speaking of crocheting for the home in this time, one of the things I noticed about the crochet patterns from this time is that there were a lot of new patterns for crochet rugs.
This was another mail-away-for crochet pattern for a two-toned crochet bathroomrug and matching crochet towel edgings.

Tricô e Crochê Livro História
Usually when I find crochet books from this era they are the types of crochet pattern books you see above. Contudo, this time I also found a knitting and crochet book that offers a historical non-fiction look at crafting. The book was published in 1990 but it references a large number of publications from the year 1936. É chamado No Idle Hands: The Social History of American Knitting and is about the history of American needlework as well as the related history of women’s roles in society from colonial times through the late twentieth century. Although focused on the history of American knitting, it also references crochet and other needlework mutiple times throughout the text.
