Border of a Music-Stool Cover from Treasures in Needlework

The border attached to the music-stool cover found on page 258 of Treasures in Needlework is a typical net square-mesh Vandyke. It has one square at the point of the Vandyke and one square between Vandykes. This edge has 13 rows of square mesh above the 6 rows of the Vandyke. The design meant to be embroidered on the netting is found in the book. My purpose was to show how to create the net background. My directions for the square-mesh netting: First Vandyke with straight vertical side Row…

Edging of Pelote a l’Imperatrice from Treasures in Needlework

The scalloped edge found on page 243 of Treasures in Needlework is a variation of a Vandyke edge. Instead of continuing to the point, this edge flattens the netting where a point would have been. The instructions in the book worked well to make the first scallop and to figure out the additional repeating ones. Understanding the directions for the final vertical straight edge and accompanying scallop was challenging. The design meant to be embroidered on the netting is found in the book. My…

The edging for the square-mesh doily that appears on pages 238-239 of Treasures in Needlework is made of scallops that are either half or three-quarter circles. The scallop on the right of the photo is made at each of the corner squares of the square-mesh netting. The scallop on the left of the photo is made along the edge beginning with the ninth square from a corner. Changing the size of the mesh sticks used for the scallops will change the size of the scallop and the number of squares…

Edging of Fairy Purse from Treasures in Needlework

On pages 227-228 of Treasures in Needlework, I found a netting stitch I had never seen before. It was located in the instructions near the top of this purse. It's name - the Egyptian Stitch. This stitch involves pulling loops through each other. I started by using the knitting needles it called for (a size 0000 and a size 0) and size 60 crochet thread, but found the loops were too small for me to see what I was supposed to do. So I changed to a 1/4" and a 3/8" mesh stick, and size 20 crochet…

Border of A Lady's Netted Cap from Treasures in Needlework

On pages 132 - 133 of Treasures in Needlework Mrs. Warren and Mrs Pullan included directions for a Lady's Net Cap. The border of this cap is hard to see in the illustration, so I decided to make it to see what it looked like. The mesh sticks called for in this pattern were steel meshes #10, #12, and #14 and a 3/4" flat mesh stick. I converted those mesh stick sizes to a modern US size 0 (2 mm), size 1 (2.25 mm), and size 3 (3 mm), as well as the 3/4" (19 mm) flat one. Here are my directions…

Netted Lace from Treasures in Needlework

In 1855, Mrs. Warren and Mrs. Pullan published Treasures in Needlework. Among the patterns were several which included net edges. The instructions for Netted Lace, found on page 13, recommended using a "bone mesh a quarter of an inch wide; steel mesh gauging, No. 13." I used a 1/4" mesh stick and a #1 knitting needle (having converted the Old English size 13 to a modern US size 1 or 2.5 mm). I also discovered that when the thread is wrapped once around the knitting needle before the netting…

Another Lace from The Lady's Manual of Fancy-Work

This net lace edging, Another Lace is found on page 93 of The Lady's Manual of Fancy-Work: a complete instructor in every variety of ornamental needle-work by Mrs. Matilda Marian Pullan. It uses a netting needle filled with a double thread as well as a a netting needle filed with a single strand of thread. I did not "Conclude by taking some of the silk four times doubled and working one stitch between every two of last row, with a somewhat coarser mesh". I thought the 8 strands of thread…

A Small, Neat Shell Edge from The Lady's Manual of Fancy-Work

This "small neat shell edging" is very similar to the Shell Edge from last week. It is found on page 93 of The Lady's Manual of Fancy-Work: a complete instructor in every variety of ornamental needle-work by Mrs. Matilda Marian Pullan. There were just two changes made: one by the author to use 8 loops in the shell and the one by me to use smaller mesh sticks. Here are my instructions. Row 1: Using #3 knitting needle Net 13 more knots in the foundation loop. (13 loops) Rows 2-3: Using #3…

Another Shell found on page 92 of The Lady's Manual of Fancy-Work: a complete instructor in every variety of ornamental needle-work, by Mrs. Pullan.

Shell Edging from The Lady's Manual of Fancy-Work

The Shell Edging is found on page 92 of The Lady's Manual of Fancy-Work: a complete instructor in every variety of ornamental needle-work. Each shell in this edging is not connected to the other shells. I found when using the #2 knitting needle (2.75 mm) and a 1/2" flat mesh, I had to leave 10 loops between the shells. That number may change if different size mesh sticks. Here are the instructions as I phrased them. Row 1: Using #2 knitting needle (2.75 mm) Net 23 more knots in the…
