Antique Knitting and Crochet Terms

Antique and Vintage patterns can be a challenge due to the fact that terms used were not standardized. Thankfully, some patterns give some explaination so you can figure out the terminology; others you have to guess.

Judith McLeod-Odell has a great web site that is an online resource in conjuction with her book, Heirloom Knits. Her chart of antique and vintage crochet terms and their meanings is the best I have seen. Rather than try to research and create my own, I bow to this awesome site. Check it out. Her book is fabulous too!
