We are very pleased to present PieceWork’s newest eBook. Here are the nineteen knitting patterns from the New Illustrated Knitting, Netting, and Crochet Book by Miss Watts published in London in 1845. They are reproduced for you here exactly as they appear in the original; neither alterations nor corrections were made.

This eBook is for the history enthusiast, vintage knitter, and sophisticated needleworker.

Immerse yourself in 1845 London, England with patterns that will test your skills and surprise your needleworking hands. Included in this eBook are 19+ various patterns.

  • A Cardinal Cape for a Little Girl

Though the title states the book is "illustrated" there are only three pages of illustrations with only 5 patterns depicted.

In addition to the intriguing, though mysterious, patterns, there is very little information known of the author, Miss Watts. Aside from her classic books and works attributed to her she is but anonymous.

Several of the patterns use Strutt's Cotton thread established as a family enterprise in 1726 which continued until 1897 when the business was acquired by the English Sewing Cotton Company. However, one of the original cotton mills still stands today in Belper, England. For modern knitters, the suggested materials are lace, sport, fingering, and DK weight yarns.

We hope you enjoy your glimpse into Miss Watts's world of mid-nineteenth-century knitting!
