Ladies Workbook of Knitting, Crochet, Point Lace etc
Fantastic book containing the complete instructions from the original Victorian Ladies Workbook of knitting, crochet and point lace, complete with engravings.

There are 150 pages chock a block full of amazing vintage patterns, many of which will still be fresh and useful today - others will be quaint gifts or keepsakes.
I have spent many hours retypesetting this book, but sadly have NOT had the time to try out all the patterns and ensure that they work out properly! Also, bear in mind that the materials used are probably not available today so some experimentation will be required to achieve the correct results. Nevertheless, this is a unique opportunity to acquire these patterns in a truly usable form. The book is in PDF format, so you can print out the patterns as and when you require them for use.
