I'm searching for Mail Order Knit or Cochet patterns not in my collection?  Do you have any tucked away that you'd be willing to trade?   I'm trying to build a master collection, which currently does not exist and your help would be most appreciated.  (

The Mail Order Pattern Designers of Readers Mail (Alice Brooks, Anne Cabot, Laura Wheeler) created many crochet patterns aimed at the rural woman; not high society fashion.   That is not to say that many Designs didn't fit 'that fashion call', then, as well as now.   Here you will find many cardigans, jackets, some dresses, accessories and a bit more.    And, the artwork is delightful to browse.    

There are, of course, many more patterns from the major yarn suppliers in the crochet category.
