Last week I shared some of the best Vintage 4th of July Crochet Wearables from an old 1972 issue I had of McCall’s Needlework & Crafts Magazine. Those weren’t the only great designs in the magazine, though. Here are 20 more examples of great crochet patterns in that magazine that show off that terrific 1970s crochet style.

    It is interesting how some crochet is ageless. Probably some of these designs are the same, or nearly the same as they were in 1930 or 1940.
    Are the ‘3 leaf & stem’ motifs decorating the apron created with concentric row of sc, or are they more sophisticated?
    Also, what stitch is used for the tweedy ‘Star’ jacket and skirt? Very effective ‘faux boucle’!
    Thanks for posting these designs.

    I’m in love with the mini shorts and the mini short with jacket outfit.
