PieceWork is pleased to present Weldon's Practical Knitter, Twenty-Second Series, focusing on knitting initials and figures on socks and stockings.
This series features 10 projects focusing on knitting initial letters in sock and stockings, knitting capital and small letters, patterns for small and large numbers, six different Clox for socks and stockings, and the very handsome Dice-Check Hose for Boy of Seven.
"It is convenient to know how to knit initial letters in socks and stockings, as to do so saves the trouble of marking them afterwards, and is besides more durable, because the knitted forms an integral part of the actual fabric, and therefore will last as long as the stocking itself." - Excerpt from Weldon's Practical Knitter, Series 22
Weldon's Practical Knitter, Series 22 will instruct you on how to knit letters from A to Z, both small and capital letters, as well as figures. You will also learn how to add clox to socks and stockings. Discover how clox can be knitted with bright colored silk to create contrast against the wool or how clox can be embroidered in a satin stitch and other fancy stitches after the sock is finished.
"The appearance of socks and stockings can be very much improved by the addition of clox on both sides of the ankle, extending upwards from the foot to a height of from three inches to five inches in the similitude of a spray or feather; the former height is appropriate for a gentleman's sock, the latter for a lady's stocking." - Excerpt from Weldon's Practical Knitter, Series 22
