Knitted Nantucket Afghan PDF Pattern 44 x 70 Vintage 1950s


This lovely vintage (1959) afghan is knitted, with a crochet border. The afghan consists of 60 square, which are approx. 6.5 inches wide. The finished piece is 44 x 70 inches. To create it, you will need 6 colors of Spinnerin Nylaine Germantown Knitting Worsted (or current equivalents) along with one pair knitting needles No 6 and 1 bone crochet hook No 6 or F.

I have digitally reworked this vintage public domain pattern to produce a clean, easy to read, (1 1/2 inch line spacing) document and then converted to a PDF file (not a photocopy). The file will be sent to you by Email (NO Shipping Costs). You can open with an Adobe Reader and refer to the pattern from your screen, or print.

The PDF file will be forwarded to your email address within 12 hours.

Thanks for looking.

Originally, I simply scanned the patterns. But, often - as patterns from magazines and books were often spread over numerous pages - the end result was unattractive and, honestly, a bit difficult to read. (Old, possible damaged, paper scans and looks like old paper). So, I started experimenting with different ways to process these old patterns.

I ended up with a process where the patterns are scanned to a word document, carefully proofed and then reformatted back to a pattern with larger print (no more magnifying glasses needed) and 1 lines sentence spacing, and then converted to a PDF document. This is a labor intensive process, however, it results in an Easy-to-Read, Easy-to-Use document that I am proud to preserve and offer. I do put a copyright mark on the pattern you will receive, but Note: I am referencing the format of the pattern only. These are public domain patterns and you may create and sell the items you make. I only ask, that you do not resell the pattern in my reworked format.

It is my hope you will enjoy working with these re-digitized vintage patterns, and visit me often. I list new patterns almost daily.



Just perfect! Thanks!


Sweet vintage crochet toy pattern - I agree about the balls being light enough to toss around without causing damage. 1940s version of Nerf balls. ;>D
Great transaction - ArtFire people are the best!
