Free digitized nineteenth century patterns

Folksy made mention of this so I’m passing it on – the Richard Rutt Collection, held at the Winchester School of Art is now on-line. An amazing collection of nineteenth century knitting books, with a few nods to crochet, netting etc. A fantastic resource and free to all!

Early patterns can also be found at the lovely Antique Pattern Library, for those who do  not know of it already. Again, an amazing resource – knitting, crochet, cross stitch, tatting etc. Inspiration galore!

  1. What an awesome find! I still consider myself relatively new to knitting (a little over a year or so) and have really limited myself to finding free patterns on Ravelry or LionBrand.com or other similar places. I never even considered looking for older patterns. Thanks so much for sharing!!
