Free Vintage Baby Crochet Patterns by Alice Fowler
The patterns are cataloged by number, rather than by name. I don’t think you are likely to come across these patterns unless you search for “Alice Fowler” specifically, since the patterns do not have names (other than the number codes!).
Alice Fowler Designs Available Online

Hi Lorraine, I’m happy to hear that they worked! Have a great day, Rhondda
i got on the links i never had my wifi on my phone and my network provider would not let me go on the website
Hi Lorraine, I double checked the first 3 links and they are opening up to the patterns. They open up in a site called webarchive.org which takes snapshots of the posts on the internet so if someone takes down their website you can still access the content that was there. Which link wasn’t working for you? Thanks, Rhondda
im trying to get on the links for the alice fowler patterns and it will not load is ther any other links i could go to to get the patterns
Hi Sandra, You are very welcome 🙂 I was very happy to see the archive site had the posts too! Have a lovely day, Rhondda
It is so nice to see that the iseespots site has been archived and you are posting links to it. I would check it periodically for updates and was disappointed when it went missing. Fortunately I had already saved the pages for myself, but felt bad for those that missed out. Thank you for making them readily available for others.
Hi Victoria, Thank you so much for letting me know 🙂 I will try my best to use lighter yarns for videos going forward – I haven’t watched a lot of crocheting videos so I never even thought it would make a difference! Thank you again for letting me know. Wishing you the very best, Rhondda
Hello, I’m watching your video for the bonnet and appreciate your work, however, I had a hard time seeing your actual work because you used a dark yarn. It would be much easier to follow you if the yarn color you teach with is a light color. Just a friendly suggestion. I’m 70 yrs old and my eyesight isn’t what it used to be.
Hi Marge 🙂 I’ve updated the post with the archive.org links for each of the baby crochet patterns which are available. Hope this helps! Rhondda
Hi Marge, I don’t have them saved myself either. It is a shame that some of them are no longer available. 🙁
Hi Rhondda! I found the old Alice Fowler designs on web archive.org site.
