0312012535 Taking the handicrafts of the nineteenth century for inspiration, this book looks at a wide range of beautiful household items which can be created in knitting and
crochet. 'Victorian white knitting' enjoyed immense popularity for a range of traditional articles, and here Shelagh Hollingworth has brought many of the patterns up to date. A section on the basic techniques of knitting and crochet is followed by the patterns, including instructions for bedspreads, table linen, tray cloths, cushion covers, chair backs and cot covers. Many of the articles featured are composed of small sections which are made separately and joined together at the end of the work. All the stitches are based on knit and purl, double crochet and treble crochet, so the patterns are within the scope even of newcomers to the craft. With the help of this book you can enjoy working these lovely old patterns while creating heirlooms for tomorrow. 12 color photographs 52 black and white photographs 25 diagrams 120 pages.
