It was laying in the room that I stay in when I’m there. No one is sure of where it came from.
It’s a Coats and Clark (makers of Red Heart) Jiffy Accessories to Knit and Crochet pattern book. It was printed in 1961 and sold for 29 cents.
And let me tell ya folks, the patterns are HORRIBLE.
The poodles are terrifying, they have some weird jacket type things and boleros, knee warmers (? wtf ?), weird oblong, missile-shaped house slippers, a double-stacked knitted stocking hat with triple pom-poms, knitted wrist cuffs, and a scary serial-killer ski helmet.
Everything the modern knitter needed back then to look absolutely hideous.
