A must-have for collectors!
These electronic pattern books open a window on another time and another place.
The time is the turn of the twentieth century and the place is London, England. Needleworkers of that era would be amazed to see their favorite knitting patterns in a virtual format of which they could never have dreamed.
The projects contained within these series range from charming to simply strange, from lovely edgings and triangular shawls to knee covers and baby knickers.
The instructions might perplex a contemporary knitter accustomed to much hand-holding, but the stitch patterns and shapings are often ingenious, and many of the objects transcend the century-plus span of years since they were devised.
This set of pamphlets serves as a curiosity, an inspiration, a resource, and a link to a time beyond our memories.
