Knit along...Victorian knitted lace edging No.1

Let's try a knit along. I have found many Victorian knitted lace patterns in old newspapers. It is fun to knit them and see what they turn out to look like! It is a glimpse into the past.

This is No. 1 from 1882. I have included below a clipping that explains the old knitting terms. You can email me a photo of your work and we can compare our results. I'll post our photos next week.

NOTE: I found an error in row 9. There is an extra "narrow, over"

Enjoy, Debby

Free lace shawl pattern

Pretty Sophie Shawl from is offered as a free download.

I like the combination of lace on the sides and then the interesting panel down the center. Looks like there are some cable twists in it too!

Happy knitting, Debby
