|vintage knitting pattern|
The pattern is from the Scotch Wool Shop - Greenock Wool # 717.
I guess that the pattern might be from the 1940s or 1950s.
As the tension is similar to DK (8ply) I used Baby DK and 4mm needles.
As I was knitting I wondered who had used the pattern last ..... and did she love knitting as much as I do? Was the pattern bought by a new mum looking forward to her new baby .... or perhaps by a grandma, an auntie or a sister to make something pretty for a special new addition to the family?
There is a pretty trellis stitch that I have never come across before.
Who wrote the instructions? Was the stitch one that was passed down from older generations of knitters?
And will anyone in the future ever use this pattern leaflet again?
I do hope so.
