These patterns were published in the Darling Downs Gazette on Saturday, August 17, 1895

From the original publication:

“These pretty braids may be knitted of cotton, linen, silk or wool, to correspond with the material upon which they are to be placed. They may be used wherever a narrow fancy braid or gimp trimming is appropriate. They may also be used as insertion, over ribbon bands, in infant’s garments, the braid being attached to the cloth only by a few stitches at the middle of every edge scallop. The work is extremely simple and may be very rapidly accomplished.”
