Types of Vintage Crochet Patterns

You can think of several different things when you think of a “vintage” crochet pattern. Some people may think of old patterns that are actually designed in the 1900s.

Whereas, other people may think of patterns designed at anytime, with a vintage style to them.

The latter is what we’ll be looking at today! I’ve compiled a list of Christmas crochet patterns with a vintage feel to them—so you can bring cozy older styles back into your home this year!

Here’s just a small taste of what’s included:

  • Vintage crochet stocking patterns
  • Vintage crochet ornament patterns
  • Some vintage home decor (like wall hangings and kitchen towels)
  • Even a vintage Christmas cowl

I’m confident you will find something you love. So are you ready to see the patterns?
