This week’s knitting pattern is based on a knitted doily edging from 1884. The reason it took me two weeks to get this one online, rather than giving it to you last week is because I had to rework the way the diamonds transition from one to the next, and kept changing my mind about how to do it, which meant a LOT of knitting.
I hope you enjoy the new pattern for the Knitted Diamond and Flag Border.
If you enjoy knitted lace edgings, don’t forget to check out the whole collection! My collection of knitted collars (because they’re usually just big edgings), insertions and edgings.
Today’s knitting pattern is a very unusual lace edging rescued from the advice column of the Melbourne Leader from 1884. I’m a sucker for any 19th century lace edging that doesn’t have a picture of the finished lace, because they’re usually ignored or missed by modern knitters and are sometimes very special, like this one.
Check out the knitting pattern for “Uncommon Lace”. I’ve updated, charted and test knit it so you don’t have to.
This week’s knitting pattern is a lace edging I have named “Narracoorte Lace“, after the newspaper it was first published in, in 1890.
As always, I have updated the pattern into modern knitting terms, charted it and tested it for errors. Despite it’s complex looking design, narracoorte lace is only 17 stitches wide and 10 rows long, making it really good value for your effort!
There are now over 183 edging and insertion patterns on Knitting-and.com and they can all be found on the “Lace Collars, Edgings and Insertions” pages. (I include collars because they often make great edgings too). If you’re ever looking for a perfect finish to your project, check them out!
This week’s new knitting pattern is a lovely lace edging from 1911, The Dorothy Knitted Lace.
This lace edging is a nice addition to what I call the “English Laces” here on Knitting-and.com (since the first lace edging of this style that I found was called English Lace). You’ll find the others in the ever-growing Lace Collars, Edgings and Insertions collection, which I update regularly.
As always, I have updated the knitting terms used in the pattern, charted it and checked it for errors.
