I’m probably the last person on earth to discover the crocheted paisley motif. I happened to pick up a used book at the library book sale on Saturday entitled Exotic Styling (the Art of Sewing) by Time-Life Books. It cost me 50 cents. It has lots of color photos and line drawings. And it has a few pages on the crocheted paisley motif.
I, of course, the obsessive one, had to make one. And in case you are like me and haven’t discovered the fun of crocheting a paisley or two but need the instructions, I scanned and made a PDF for that very purpose. You will of course need to have the Acrobat Reader software to read or print.
There is also this very cool top pattern that I just might have to try to make someday if I ever figure out how to not get bored making the same thing over and over…I still haven’t revisited my granny squares. I just got so tired of making the same thing over and over… If you have more discipline than me and want to try to make it, the pattern has again been made into PDF.
I would have made the PDF files downloadable if I could ever figure out how to make this WordPress blog software co-operate with me. So if you wish to save the file, I think you can do a save as in reader. If not, well, try to print the pattern. And if that doesn’t work for you, well drop me a line and I’ll email it to you. Hopefully, Time-Warner won’t have a conniption fit, the book is out of print and I am sharing this information for educational purposes.
