I would like to find a pattern from the 70's of rows of little blocks crocheted into a skirt. I lost my pattern in a fire years ago. I believe I got it out of a magazine. Any info would help. Thanks, Gena

These are 2 of my favorite sites for free crochet patterns. The 1st one has a search function which helps when looking for something specific. The 2nd one has a whole list of patterns from the 70's. Hope you find what you're looking for.

I was looking for a craft pattern for someone else and came across two long skirt a McCalls Needlework magazine from Fall-Winter 1972-73. One skirt was made out of crocheted granny squares put together on point. The other was like a patchwork skirt...squares made out of stripes and solids. If either of these interest you, send me a pm with your email address and I will send you a picture, etc.

I was introduced to this great website: (

It has hundreds of granny squares and directions. It is a lot of fun to look at.
