Discover 80 vintage crochet patterns with the Weldon’s Practical Crochet: Ninth-Twelfth Series eBook!

 

PieceWork magazine is pleased to present this exact reproduction (neither alterations nor corrections were made to the original published in 1889) of Weldon’s Practical Crochet. It is a fitting example of needlework and history, hand in hand. This electronic pattern book opens a window on another time and another place. The time is the late nineteenth century and the place is London, England. Needleworkers of that era would be amazed to see their favorite crochet patterns in a virtual format of which they could never have dreamed. 

 

In an effort to bring needlework to the emerging middle class, Weldon’s, a paper pattern producer of the Victorian era, began to publish monthly newsletters devoted to various crafts (beading, knitting, crochet, patchwork, and the like). These newsletters were typically 14 pages and cost 2 pence. Later, they were collected into book form, titled Weldon’s Practical Needlework. The Twelfth series was included in Volumes 4 and 5.

 

We have reproduced for you here the crochet material from the Ninth, Tenth, Eleventh, and Twelfth Series.
