Traditional Coverlet Patterns for Contemporary KnittersBook - 1989
Elegant knitted coverings called counterpanes adorned many a bed in the 19th century. The patterns for most of these coverings, however, have been neglected for most of this century--until now. This book presents the best yield of the author's extensive search through 19th-century needlepoint magazines--46 counterpane patterns and 32 lace edgings and borders for knitters of all skill levels.
