Campus Size Afghan

Shelley with Cheryl Tiegs in a spread for Modern Needle/Craft, 1971

Shelley appeared in several spreads in Modern Needle/Craft magazine back in 1971. In one spread, she modeled a "campus size, diamond ripple afghan" that was great for cozying up in. Crochet was a popular hobby in the 1970s; and many there were many reading materials available on the subject. The other models who appeared regularly in them were Cheryl Tiegs, Beverly Johnson and Shelley Smith.
