Format: Paperback
The subtitle for this book should be "A Victorian Notebook of Knited Lace Edging Patterns. With only a few exceptions the patterns are for edging only with no all over lace patterns.

This is a basic book of edgings mainly, with one or two whole patterns. But if you do like some historical content of your stitches, you might really enjoy this book.

This is a real treasure; not only do you get to meet Blanche Beau and peek into her lace notebook, but you get the lace all charted for ease of knitting.
I love antique knitting patterns but going through the non-standard notations written out line-by-line can be tedious. The modernized charting makes the lace accessible. You can never have enough stitch patterns for lace edgings for shawls and pillows. Really lovely.

Delightful story of a Victorian lady and her lace. The author then recreates the lace patterns in contemporary terminology. The real plus--all patterns are charted.

precious and practicle Sept. 13 2011
By Elizabeth - Published on Amazon.com
Format: Paperback Verified Purchase
these patterns, mostly edgings, are easy to follow and very beautiful. If you like to add knitted edgings (perpendicular to your garment) to your pieces these are lovely. All the patterns are clearly articulated in written out form and perfectly charted. Nice piece of history in the story of the book and the timeless but still clearly Victorian flavor of the patterns. I am delighted with this book. Well worth the investment!
