Some knitting & crochet patterns stand the test of time, others, not so much. This is a "not so much" situation. What makes it "dated" is not so much the lines or the proportions as it is the bulkiness of the designs. All were designed with the idea that they can be churned out in a weekend. Most all are crocheted using worsted weight yarns doubled and very large needles. That's not necessarily a bad thing, but the results can be "clunky" when crocheted flat and sewn together. Generally speaking, the designs are mostly boxy, and the seams are rather clumsy-looking, especially when compared to many of the current crochet patterns which are often seamless or require little "making up".

BUT, if you want quick, or if you want to burn through a major stash of worsted weight yarn, and you don't care about boxiness, bulkiness, etc., it may just suit your purpose.

love her work!
I just find this truly enjoyable book an excellent source of patterns for those who just crave to make crocheted garments. The book has more than 70 patterns to make, and most can be accomplished in a weekend. All instructions are not abbreviated, allowing the novice to fully appreciate the craft of crochet. Includes both black and white and color photos of finished projects, helpful hints on how to perfect your craft, and definitions of terms as used in the book. Great addition to a crocheter's library. If ever this does get in stock back, buy it, buy it, buy it!
