Could you describe them? Was that the only name they were known by?

hi garden girl - the jackets were crocheted. they had a zipper up the front. they were made of knitting worsted. i think single crochets and a loop stitch were used. it's been a long time. they were made for kids and also grown ups. they had long sleeves and i don't think that they had a collar(i don't remember). thank you for any help you can give

I don't recall the name, but with a picture or some details it may help one of us on KP to help you. A lot of us have "old" magazines and pattern books and leaflets.

What do you mean by "loop stitch"? Were there loops on the outside of the jacket?

hi garden girl - yes there were loops on the whole outside of the jacket. if i recall correctly, you made a chain at the very bottom and worked up to the armholes. after you got up to the armholes, you worked the back and two fronts separately. the sleeves were worked individually. i don't have any pictures of this jacket. i guess that's why it's so hard to find. if i can't find a pattern, maybe i will have to try to experiment with it.

The only pattern I found you can see at http:www.//freevintagecrochet.com/free-jacket-pattern/cm736/loop-jacket

I hope I did that right. This version has buttons and elbow length sleeves, but you can change the details. Good luck!

I'm also looking for that pattern for a friend. She made several of the jackets in the 70's, and she calls it Big Bird pattern. I've Googled everything I could think of and still can't seem to find it. Good luck with your search. I'll post if I find the pattern.
