  1. Very 1980’s – some of them are cute though.

  2. Heh,
    those would certainly be very stylish
    on a short, curvy person like myself

  3. Good old Sylvia Cosh – a pillar of the Knitting and Crochet Guild! Some of those clothes… could be adapted.

  4. Not a one. No, thanks!

  5. Erm, I actually own an original copy of this book (1987)
    Seemed quite innovative at the time.
    Never actually made anything from it of course.

  6. Aw, I kinda like them all.

  7. Oh jeeze O.O this freaked me out! scrolling through google reader i was going through a bunch of my crochet blogs and was like “ooh, pretty shawl, OMG MUST HAVE THOSE SOCKS, aww, that’s adorable!” and then came across this post and was like “o.O either somebody’s a few skeins short of a basket, or that HAS to be what not to crochet…” and had to scroll up just to check. ❤

  8. I like the tops in the last photo. The sweater, not so much.

  9. When I was a kid, my mom had a copy of this book and I *loved* it. I even made the basic sweater (not shown because it’s not that interesting). A few years ago my mom was cleaning out her crafting books and offered it to me . . . and after a last nostalgic look through, I had to decline. The patterns have, to put it gently, not aged well.

  10. What are you all talking about? I LOVE this book! Cosh’s use of color is nothing short of spectacular. I own an original copy as well and will never part with it. I didn’t learn of Sylvia Cosh’s importance to freeform crochet until much later. So I must be your mother’s age, Rebecca. Oh well … different strokes.

  11. The first one is groovy. And I’m no fan of 80s fashion.

  12. I hate it when people have a great idea and then go way overboard with it. Tone down the colours and size ’em down a bit and she may have had something….maybe…

  13. Ha! I actually have a copy of this book!
