A close look at some curious, perplexing, and estimable knitted objects from the past 200 years.

Susan Strawn has scrounged through antique stores and flea markets, tapped into her museum connections, and accepted the generosity of strangers to come up with the intriguing range of knitted objects in this video. From 15th century child’s mittens to a 20th century patented design system, she offers fascinating insights and observations on what we knit and why we knit. Heavens, you’ll even see radioactive knitting needles!

In addition to the old knitted items, Susan demonstrates how to interpret a 1930s drop-stitch pattern, how to make an Amana-style picot edge for socks, and how to start a starburst panel for a knitted cap. She shares, via downloadable PDFs, patterns for a pair of silk mittens and knee-high lacy stockings.

Serious, experienced knitters will be intrigued by the range of techniques, and more casual knitters will revel in the poignant stories and social insights.

Topics include:

  • Knitted bags and pockets
  • Knitting for babies and children
  • Knitting for the troops
  • Knitting for fashion
  • And many curiosities that can’t be categorized!
