Paragon Books

Australian 'Paragon' publications contain crochet or tatting instructions for a wide variety of projects including doilies, collars, gloves, bedspreads, tablecloths, motifs, edges, etc. or knitting instructions (mostly outfits for dolls, babies and children) with black and white pictures of the finished articles.

Thank you to all of you who have been helping us with our search for old Paragon knitting and crochet books to complete our archives. We are beginning to think most of our missing books may be in New Zealand and possibly South Africa under either the main "Paragon" logo or under the "Modella", "Fontana" or "Russell-Lea" imprints.

We are still looking for copies of Paragon Knitting Books numbered: 9, 10, 13, 14, 15, 16, 35, 43 - 50, 64, 79, 89, 90, 93, 95 - 99, 107, 109 - 199.

Please contact us if you can assist.
