Free Victorian knitting patterns

Here is a link to three Victorian knitting patterns as printed in the New York Times in 1883

a pair of ladies gloves
a lace shoulder shawl
a baby sock or bootie

Dritz Smockruler

Remember those velvet and corduroy smocked pillows from the 1960's? I thought they were fascinating. Well, I found a smocking ruler at an estate sale and have it for sale on ETSY. All the instructions are right on the package. 

Here is a news article from 1965 describing how to use the ruler...and check out the picture of Ann Landers on her column!

Lace collar pattern on ETSY

Are you tired of scarf patterns? Make this simple collar to keep your neck warm and stylish.

This collar is an adaption of a simple lace pattern from the 1890's. It is a very simple knitted lace project having only 12 rows making up the pattern.

The collar pictured was made up with Red Heart Shimmer, a light worsted weight yarn and US 8 knitting needles.

Finish your collar with a pretty vintage button, ribbon bow or a broach.

Make this your first lace project without the bother of thread weight yarn and tiny needles!
