The instructions for each yoke are quite brief, and this book is recommended for a crocheter who is a bit more seasoned or is accustomed to vintage patterns and instructions. The photos are huge and clear, and if you can follow a pattern by a photographic example, you will have no trouble with these patterns. These designs are true masterpieces and a nostalgic reminder of the finer days of fancy crochet.

    In the 1888 pattern for men's long underwear, the yarn used in the pattern was intended for a heavier weight garment. In this pattern, a slightly larger size 5 needle and a sport weight yarn are used to make the drawers. This is intended to be a lighter weight version of the earlier pattern. Also required are small buttons and a length of bias braid to be sewn at the waistband for a place to attach suspenders. The pattern could be modified to use an elastic waist band, but at the time that this pattern was written, the elastic waistband was not to be invented for another 50 years!
