I had so much fun writing yesterday's post and reading all your wonderful comments, so I couldn't wait to show you more of my Grandma's crochet. So, let's go back to my Aunt's house and see what we'll find today...
Here's a round cushion. My parents have still got the same one at home and I've known this cushion for as long as I can remember. Maybe one day I'll sit down and try to figure out how grandma made it:
aaaahh... no words necessary...
I really thought that forty years ago people mainly made the traditional granny square, so you can imagine my surprise, when I saw this little blankie:
It's the 1970s calling (or rather screaming) again :) But have a closer look at the pattern, isn't that just awesome??
Here's another, bigger blanket:
I think my grandma made it with lots of front and back post dc's, similar to the basketweave pattern but with a different placement of the stitches:
This is a woven crochet baby blankie my grandma made for my brother (he was born in 1971). I remember using this blanket for my dolls, and my niece Hanna's still got it in her doll's pram - and that's where I found it today :) Such a gorgeous pattern...
And finally... do you remember when I told you that I had a crochet dress but couldn't find a picture of it? My Mom found one :) It's not a very good picture, though - but anyway: here's a picture of my Mom and me and my little crochet dress:
I hope you've enjoyed this little trip to the 1970s as much as I did! Next time it's my Aunt's turn - different style but beauuuuuutiful! :)
