“Pattern from history” posts were born when my lovely grandmother gave me all (well, almost all) of her old pattern sheets with old knitting patterns. 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.
These patterns are charted, without pictures and full of mistakes, so I took my mission to knit all of them through, make a written instructions and take a proper picture.
I hope you’ll enjoy them ?
