Collecting patterns seems to be a by-product of crocheting, it is for me. One of the types of patterns that I like to collect is vintage patterns. I have a preference for filet crochet patterns, but other types of patterns as well.
There are some very interesting motifs, edgings, and accessory patterns to be found. It certainly provides inspiration for future projects.
If you are interested in getting some vintage patterns there are a couple of websites that are great resources, and I use them a lot. They both need a bit of patience to search through to get what you are after, but it is worth it.
Thanks for reading and I look forward to chatting with you again soon.
