Famous Knitters – Joan Crawford

Joan Crawford (March 23, 1904-May 10, 1977)

There are so many stories about Joan Crawford and her knitting – just put in those last few words on the internet and they will pop up, legends and all.

She was, however, one of Hollywood’s Golden Age’s champion knitters and continued to be so throughout her life.  Here she is teaching or helping Ann Blyth who starred with Crawford in Mildred Pierce (1945.)

Some shots from behind the cameras.

Notice the striped knitting bag in both.

You, too, can make this dress knitted and modeled by Joan Crawford in Modern Knitting and Needlework, Spring 1949 if you go to

Here she is featured in Lady’s Circle from 1972.
