Patterns from Needlecraft: Knitted Lace Edgings (second series), 1905

Title page from Needlecraft: Knitted Lace Edgings (second series), 1905

Needlecraft practical journals were first published around 1900 and covered many types of crafts, featuring everything from chip carving to "knitted dainties".

My favourites are the editions with knitted edgings, doilies and shawls and I pick them up whenever I can.

I'll be uploading all of the patterns from both the first and second series of Knitted Edgings. (I accidentally started with the second series, oops).

They patterns have been updated, charted and corrected (where necessary).

These are just a selection of the free knitted lace and insertion patterns available for free on Knitting-and.com! See the full list of edging and insertion patterns for more.
