Hand Book of Knitting and Netting

This book was originally published in 1849. It measures a scant 3 1/4 wide and 4 1/2 high but contains about 70 different sets of instructions for the combined techniques (A complete listing appears below). There are even some instructions for projects in tatting and berlin work. Because of its size, it is a convenient volume to tuck into a pocket or work basket.

64 pages. Paperbound.

$ 7.95
