Ice Harbor Mittens Spacer 10x10 pixels

Ice Harbor Mittens Pattern
By Robin Hansen

The mittens are based off of the traditional mittens that fisherman use on the East Coast.

They are knitted big and then shrunk to a perfect fit. The pattern is that of a compass and is worked in beautiful contrasting colors.

     

Jane's Kerseymere Spencer Jacket

 

Jane's Kerseymere Spencer Jacket Pattern
By Mary Gildersleeve

Knit this cropped jacket with a five button closure.


The Spencer Jacket body is worked in one piece to the underarms and then split for the two fronts and the back. The shoulders are joined with a three-needle-bind-off, and the sleeves are worked in the round from the top down, starting with short-rows and ending with the lace-ruffled cuff. A button and buttonhole band are knitted on, and then the collar is worked from stitches picked up around the neck.

     

A Sixteenth-Century Basque Whalers' Cap

 

A Sixteenth-Century Basque Whalers' Cap Pattern
By Wendy Leigh-Bell

This knitted cap is a careful reproduction of a sixteenth-century whaler's cap based on a fragment found in a burial excavation of a Basque whaling station in Red Bay, Labrador, Canada.

This knitted cap should fit an average-sized adult head but could be altered easily. Although it's based on the ancient Phrygian style, today's knitter will find it a very wearable cap.

     
The General Carleton Cap  

The General Carleton Cap Pattern

By Penelope Lister Hemingway

This knitted cap is based on the original cap excavted from the General Carleton, an English merchant ship that sank in the Baltic Sea in 1785.

The bold geometric pattern and natural colors reflect the pattern of the original cap and the decorative thrum edging provides additional insulation and warmth.

     

Julija's Wrist Warmers

 

Julija's Wrist Warmers Pattern

By Sonata Eidikien

 

Women's knitted traditional Lithuanian wrist warmers.

These knitted, beautiful beaded wrist warmers were worn in Lithuania in the nineteenth and early twentieth centuries and now you recreate them for yourself!

     
     

A Man's Danish Gloves to Knit Pattern

 

A Man's Danish Glove to Knit Pattern

By Lita Rosing-Schow

 

This project is a reproduction of the man's gloves in the collection of the Nordsjællandsk Folkemuseum in Hillerød, Denmark.

Personalize your gloves with the appropriate initials and the year you made the gloves. Design your own letters and numbers using graph paper!

     

Lithuanian Baby Mittens to Knit

 

Lithuanian Baby Mittens to Knit Pattern

By Donna Druchunas

Knit these baby mittens, made in a style frequently seen in
the Baltic Sea city of Klaipe.da, Lithuania.

With striped cuffs and a floral motif, these baby mittens are made in a style frequently seen in the Baltic Sea city of Klaipe.da, Lithuania's third largest city. As you will use only a few yards of each of the contrasting colors, you will have enough yarn left over to make several additional pairs of mittens or perhaps even a small newborn sweater.

 

     
Poetry Mittens to Knit Pattern

 

Poetry Mittens to Knit Pattern

By Veronica Patterson and Jane Fournier

Challenge yourself with these poetic mittens to knit.

Worked in the round of fingering-weight yarn, our brightly colored poetry mittens warm more than just your hands on a chilly day. If you wish to design your own mittens, sources of suitable poems are many.

     

Prudence Cap or Neck Ruff for Miss Pole

 

Prudence Cap or Neck Ruff for Miss Pole Pattern
By Mary Lycan

A striped Prudence Cap for Miss Pole to be worn under her bonnet and calash during cool Cranford winters.

It demonstrates her "elegant economy." The original pattern is in the fifth edition of The Lady's Assistant for Executing Useful and Fancy Designs in Knitting, Netting, and Crochet Work (Edinburgh: I. J. Gaugain, 1842).

     
1655 Stockings Pattern  

1655 Stockings Pattern

By Chris Laning

Knit these historic socks adapted from stocking instructions published in 1655.


These stockings are adapted from the stocking instructions published in the compendium of household advice called Natura Exenterata published in London in 1655. The biggest difference between these and the originals is scale: whereas the stockings in the original instructions probably were knitted in fingering-weight wool at a gauge of about 10 stitches per inch (4 stitches per cm), these are knitted in sportweight wool at 7½ stitches per inch (3 stitches per cm).

In 1655, stockings knitted at this gauge would have been regarded as "coarse" or "common" stockings.
