In hunting for netting books online, I found several by Mrs. Gaugain. The Lady's Assistant in Knitting, Netting, and Crochet Work, second volume, is a sequel to the one I mentioned last week. It was originally published in 1842. Apparently in 1842 she published both books.
Besides knitting and crochet patterns, it contains the following netting patterns:
- Long Net Purse, called Double Netting (item 121, page 252)
- Small Net Neckkerchief (item 122, page 253)
- Very Beautiful Long Net Purse, with Gold Beads (item 136, page 290)
- Another Very Beautiful Long Net Purse (item 137, page 292)
- Diced Net Purse, in Twist and Beads (item 142, page 295)
- Net Cuffs, in Berlin Wool and Silk (item 194, page 307)
- Very Light and Elegant Square Net Dress Shawl (item 166, page 365)
- Simple and Pretty Black Net Scarf (item 170, page 371)
This book also contains:
- Directions for guiding the proper sizes of Silks and Meshes used for Purses in Net Work (page 415)
- Remarks on Netting (page 416)
- [comments on the direction (lengthwise or widthwise) to make curtains for the best result when they are hung and how to block finished netting]
- Make a Stitch in Netting
- To Take-in or Diminish
- Bead Stitch [how to add beads to netting]
- Netting with Shade Silk
In the process of creating the videos for my Circular Netting Class, I needed to make more hot pads. This one was a revision of a pattern I had already made for this class.
|Flower - Hot Pad|
This was a new one. I realized that I had not made any simple hot pads that demonstrated how to decrease. So this one fills that need.
|Tops - Hot Pad|
I finished the taping done for several of the videos. Now I just need to pull the pieces together to make coherent videos that teach the skills needed in circular netting. At least progress is finally being made on the videos.
