Though the title states the book is "illustrated" there are only three pages of illustrations with only 5 patterns depicted.


In addition to the intriguing, though mysterious, patterns, there is very little information known of the author, Miss Watts. Aside from her classic books and works attributed to her she is but anonymous.

Several of the patterns use Strutt's Cotton thread established as a family enterprise in 1726 which continued until 1897 when the business was acquired by the English Sewing Cotton Company. However, one of the original cotton mills still stands today in Belper, England. For modern knitters, the suggested materials are lace, sport, fingering, and DK weight yarns.
