I found this American crochet book, that dates from the 1970s. Hope you like the patterns.
Here's a jersey for your man, made with squares.
Two coats for the dogs in your life
A lovely long skirt to wear on winter evenings.
A blanket to keep you warm. I love the way the colours are laid out.
Finally, a cushion that would use up all your yarn scraps
This proves that good things never go out of fashion! If anyone needs a pattern, please let me know, and I will copy it for you.
