Mrs. Polson's Pattern (men's vest with a snowflake motif, all over pattern)
Mrs. Dalzill's Pattern (men's vest with an all over diamond and vine pattern)
Mrs. Garrick's Patterns (2 pullovers and 1 turtle neck, one with rows of snowflake motifs alternated by rows of peerie patterns, the other 2 with rows of a rose or flower motif alternated by rows of peerie patterns).
The Prince of Wales's Jersey Pattern (no picture provided of the finished sweater, only the classic painting). The charted design is surprisingly simple.
The vast majority of charted designs are simple, conducive to production knitting, and utility garments for family, however, there are a few with more complex designs for "Sunday best."
This book celebrates knitting as it was in the life of small fishing communities located on the coast of the British Isles. It was essential to survival, not recreational as it is now.
Traditional Knitting not only gives an interesting history and depiction of knitting, but also covers basics. There are beautiful vintage and functional patterns.
