CROCHET BOOK BIBLIOGRAPHY

(last updated: June, 2019)

There isn't much on this page yet except for the tatting designers who were also crochet pattern designers, the big compilations of needlecraft books by thread manufacturers(American Thread, Coats & Clark, Lily Mills, etc) and the craft magazines that I have that published crochet patterns. I'm sorry this list is so thin. But all things have a beginning. None of my main bibliography pages started out looking like much - they all began like this. I have a big collection of Elizabeth Hiddleson books and magazine articles as well that I'm very excited about, and I've ended up with a small handful of Augusta Pfeuffer and Louise Nacke crochet books from the 1910's/20's who weren't tatters, but were published by a St. Louis publisher who published a lot of designers who also tatted.

I am particularly fond of filet crochet and pineapple motifs, so when I wax enthusiastic about a particular booklet, you can guess where my biases trend. I do not know how to crochet yet - it's been on my "To Do" list since I was a teenager, and have just never found the time to pick it up. That hasn't kept me from collecting patterns for when I do get around to it. The reason I reveal all of this is to warn you I can't answer questions about problems you may have with a pattern. On the magazine catalogs, I try to list any time there is a pattern correction in later issues.

There is a professional organization for crocheters:
https://www.crochet.org/

And of course https://www.Ravelry.com/ is a fantastic resource for crocheters and knitters.

So if you were ever curious, you can now take a look in one simple click of your mouse. I'd been piecing this list together for over a decade, and Becky filled in all the blanks in just a few days.

ANNE ORR(1875-1946) I've moved the listing and reviews of her booklets to their own page. She was a prolific and very popular designer in the 1920's - 1940's, and is credited with innovating the split ring, a very important technique that didn't really catch on until Mary Sue Kuhn showed us all why we should have been paying attention. Ms. Orr was an extremely prolific designer - but much of the work published under Anne Orr Studios was by designers who worked for her, and not from her own hands. I think of her as the Edison of the fiber arts world. I'm still a long way from having a full run of her books, but I've managed to put together a fairly comprehensive list.

Tower Press, Inc. put out a slew of Blue Ribbon Pattern Books in 1970, which were simply reprinted patterns and articles from the pages of their many magazine titles. They were printed on the same cheap newsprint as the magazines, without the glossy cover - or any artwork except a generic blue ribbon logo. If you've seen one cover, you've seen them all(see the thumbnail cover in entry below this one). I only know of eight(8) of the series that included tatting patterns(p-110, p-150, p-170, p-175, p-220,p-380, p-480,p-490). "P-160: 23 Old Time Patterns" may have some tatting in it as well, since p-170-5 have the same title. I've gone ahead and made up a page for the titles of the series I'm aware of. Keep in mind it is not complete!
