The 'Stitch by Stitch' book is from the 80s and as well as a few crochet patterns (some quite good ones), it's got some knitting stuff, embroidery and sewing. To be honest the best part is laughing at some of the photos...like these very attractive dresses!
The 'More Crochet' book is from the 70s and so also includes some pretty amusing pictures. While this isn't the worst pattern I'm just amused by the drugged out looks on the model's photos. Drugs and crochet, who knew?
