Item Description
New Designs Book No. 10

Published by Richardson Silk Company
Chicago and New York circa 1920

This is a PDF Digital Reproduction of a book published circa 1920, with 32 pages. The book contains instructions and large pictures for 32 different crocheted yokes. They are designed to be used on nightgowns, chemises, corset cover or camisoles. With today's fashion, they are still elegant attached to nightgowns, tops, dresses or camisoles. There are many different shapes and designs to the yokes and many different types of crochet used including filet, knot-stitch, Irish, Maltese and Hair-pin lace. Although this is a crochet book, there is one yoke which is tatted.

There is a page of Abbreviations which explains the 17 different stitches used in the patterns including the most familiar ones such as ch, sl st, sc, dc, tr, dtr, plus others which are used in each pattern; Group, Picot, Loop, Triangle, Cluster, Cross Treble, Knot Stitch, Lacet, Fan, Scallop, Block Stitch. The original book has very large pictures on black background with small print for directions. You will actually receive two PDF books; one is an exact copy of the original so you can easily see the detail of the yoke pictures and the other is an "ink-friendly" copy with small picture and larger print which is more practical to use as a working copy. The original book must be printed sideways as this is how the book is laid out; the working copy of the book prints normally.

You will receive this vintage pattern book in PDF format for digital download and there are no shipping charges. You can access the book easily from your computer by using the Adobe Acrobat Reader. If you do not have this on your computer, it can be downloaded for free from their site at
