There are other examples of vintage in my shop. The way they are written are more in paragraphs rather than rows.
The modern patterns are much easier to read and understand for the most part. For years I have done patterns by a designer whom I think does excellent patterns with unique designs. She doesn't do just the ordinary designs expecially in her doilies. She has designed for many years, and no I do not work for her nor does she pay me. I have just crochet a lot of her doily patterns. I enjoy them because some of them are challenging with the way you stitch them. Following are two of the patterns I recently worked on

Butterflies, roses, pineapples and hummingbirds http://www.etsy.com/listing/52279162/butterflies-pineapples-roses-and
What is really nice about Ann White's patterns she includes photographs of exactly how the stitch is to be made and where it is to go. She is a very talented designer and makes her patterns very easy to read and follow. You can find her designs on this web site:
Just thought I would pass this along to all of you who love to crochet, and might be intimidated by some of the complicated designs, Ann makes them much easier to understand.
