Pattern from history Marvelous Lace from 1981 by patternduchess“Pattern from history” posts were born when my lovely grandmother gave me all (well, almost all) of her old pattern sheets. And it was many. She collected those years and years and I think it’s a fantastic reflection of knitting history of our little country.

To make this little bit personal, I try to put little bit history of Estonia behind the year of the pattern. And I try to add all that my grandmother can remember and can tell me.

I added “can tell me” because my granny is little protective of me – she shares what she thinks I can handle – I’m a sensitive nature you see ?

I love her for that, but I can’t always get the hole truth about all that have happened.

    This is a beautiful beginning lace pattern. It would be perfect made into a scarf.

      Yes isn’t it 🙂 I thought about scarf… but I have one on my needles (that one day would be new pattern if I get to it 😀 ) But it would be one of my next projects…

    Oh, that is beautiful! One of these days, I’m going to stroll through your collection of these lovely stitch patterns & find the prettiest one for a shawl project! I have this wonderful murky green I want to turn into a stole, but don’t know which lace pattern I should use. 🙂
