Mary Elizabeth Greenwall Edie’s Knitted-Lace Samples: Show Us YOUR Samples

The story of Mary Elizabeth Greenwall Edie’s knitted-lace sampler book is included in the May/June 2016 issue of PieceWork. Frances H. Rautenbach re-created several of Mary Elizabeth’s samples for the May/June 2017 issue. Frances translated the original patterns for each sample, wrote her instructions with contemporary notations, and retained the names that Mary Elizabeth used. Frances used Nazli Gelin Garden, 100% cotton thread, size 10, in #700-02 Cream (www.universalyarn.com) and size 1 (2.25 mm) needles to make the samples.
