First, I've edited the post about "Elle" grey sweater,  as I found more info on the stitch used in that pattern (the "cotes perlees" aka royal rib / half cardigan rib). You'll find that below the original translation.

Then as I promessed, here's the translation for the blue crocheted cloche :

Materials: 2 balls of "Bouton d'Or" Vaporeux, green or blue bayadere (use 2 strands together)
5 mm crochet hook (is that H ?)

stitches used : single crochet (sc) and half double crochet (hdc)

Directions : row1 :chain 4 and close to make circle.
row2 : in that circle, make 10 hdc.
next rows : Continue in rounds working hdc stitches between the hdc of former round adding 10 st at each round,
until you have 64 st.

Continue straight (no more increases) untill the hat is 15 cm high.

Then work in sc for 2 rounds increasing 10 st per round.

Then continue straight until the border of hat measures 6 cm.

Finishing : You can decorate with a long chain made with 5 strands of yarn

The woman in the purple cape is cracking me up; I half-expected to see a wolf in the background while she's skipping around obliviously. The white knitted cardigan set is absolutely lovely, as are the patterns you were kind enough to share. Thank you.

 I would love to see the pattern for the white square-neck twin set, it looks so cute!

Thank you!

Thanks for translating the cloche pattern. It's lovely! Smiley
Some of the patterns did end up in the crazy "Make it Yourself" series.  I have a bunch of them, collected from thrift stores. 
Prunille, I think the patterns were originally German... or at least that was the origin of the photos.  I thought the books were American until I saw newspapers & signs in German.  Not to mention some of the kids' names- Moritz & Johann.  One of my books has a misguided pattern for knitting a sweater, then embroidering your child's name in tasteful colors like bright orange and ecru.
