I scanned these patterns before I sent them to someone (can't remember whom) in a swap.  They came from books that ranged from the 1960's to the 1980's.  I sure wish I knitted there is a cable knit dress pattern in here that is to DIE for.
Hope you can read the patterns, if not I might be able to fix that.
Cable knit dress with pattern to follow:

I have a bunch more patterns but can't make heads or tails out of them.  I'll post them all here and hopefully some really smart person can figure it out.  Anywho, I think the patterns are complete but I couldn't tell you which pictures go with what.  Regardless the old pictures are swell.

Those are great patterns! I've been looking for a free cabled dress pattern!!  Thanks so much for scanning and posting them  Cheesy (Ooh, could you possibly post the remainder of that "Aran Isle Dress" pattern? It looks like the instructions for the back (and sleeves?) continue on page 10 -- if I am reading it correctly  Smiley )

Oh I'm so sorry I have already swapped these books and can't for the life of me remember the lucky recipient.  If I can remember who it is and get a hold of her I will see if she can help you out.  Don't you just love that cable knit dress?!?!

i love knit skirts and dresses from the 60's. I like to wear them over dressy pants sometimes. lol i know that is a big fashion no no but it keeps me extra toasty in the winter

oh no, what happened to the pattern for the knitted hat and scarf?  it's so pretty!  the booklet seems to skip straight from the floral hat and mittens to the juliet cap.

Sorry about that, these books were super old and had been used so some of the patterns just "disappeared".  I no longer have the books to even look through them.  I wish I could remember who I sent them to, I'd have them post more pics.
