How to Knit Gentlemen's Garments, Cuffs, Gloves, Children's Things, D'Oyleys, Combination Garment, Socks, Stockings, and more.

We have reproduced for you here the knitting material from the Twenty-Third Series.

The eighteen designs range from practical to ornate and include instructions for the gorgeous Cuff Knitted in Cable Twist, a lace D’Oyley in Dahlia Pattern, a Child’s Gaiter with Knee, and the intriguing Lady’s Leggings or Riding Pants.

Instructions might perplex a contemporary knitter accustomed to detailed charts and succinct directions, but the patterns are often ingenious, and many of the objects transcend the century-plus span of years since they were devised.

Take a peak inside the pages of Weldon's Practical Knitter, Twenty-Third Series, on the Beaded Cuffs:

"These cuffs are knitted in a particularly pretty pattern; they can of course be whatever colour is preferred, but white always looks dressy, and the model cuffs are made with white Andalusian wool and white crystal beads. Procure 1 oz. of wool, 1.5 hanks of beads, and a pair of No. 16 steel knitting needles."
