The pattern is from a Bernat pattern booklet called 'Baby Love' and uses Softee Baby yarn.
A bit more information has surfaced concerning the sweater I showed you the other day that was made by my mother. Sue (Mrs. Noofy) found this reference online and I think it must have been the pattern my mother used, with the addition of a knitted ribbing at the bottom.
It does appear as though there must have been some form of loom used to form the lacy 'bits' which were then joined together with crochet.
Another thing I discovered while going through all those old photos and documents was an autograph book that belonged to my mother. She spent over three years of her life (1938-1941) as a patient in a tuberculosis hospital and the book came about during that time. There are a number of wonderful sayings and poems in that book so over the next while I will share some of them with you instead of my normal 'quotes'.
God is in every tomorrow,
Therefore I live for today,
Certain of finding at sunrise
Guidance and strength for the way;
Power for each moment of weakness,
Hope for each moment of pain,
Comfort for every sorrow,
Sunshine and joy after rain.
