Unlike other antique pattern sellers Dakota Prairie Treasures stands alone in providing our especially created yarn/threads, and needle/hooks conversion charts with every antique crochet and knitting pattern product! We diligently researched and created our 8-page Victorian Needlework Guide to assist you in selecting the correct modern equivalent of yarns, threads, needles and hooks to accurately recreate most historical 19th Century patterns.
Our unique copyrighted Victorian Needlework Guide contains 8 Help Sections:
Chart 1) Victorian (UK) Crochet Stitch Names to Modern Crochet Stitch Equivalents
Chart 2) Victorian (UK & US) Wool Yarn Names to Modern Equivalents + Recommended Modern Needle Sizes
Chart 3) Victorian (UK) Crochet Thread Names to Modern Thread Equivalents + Recommended Hook Sizes
Plus, we have included:
1) Authentic Thread & Yarn s (1857),
for the Silk and Wool Threads and Yarns of the Day
2) Authentic Crochet Stitches s (1867),
3) Authentic Explanations of Contractions used in Crochet, Tatting, Knitting and Netting
with Printer's Marks for Direction for Any Kind of Work (1868)
4) Authentic Actual Size Crochet Hooks Used (1908) includingBone and Amber
5) Authentic Actual Size of Needles Used in Knitting (1908) including Wood, Bone, Amber and Steel
Example: Your project recommends size No. 1 bone knitting needles, what do you do? With our Guide, you can quickly, easily and accurately compare what needles you have on hand by placing them over the image of the size No. 1 bone needle until you find one that matches the image's gauge size. Plus, our guide carries easily to the craft shop when you are hunting to find just the right size needle or hook if you don't have the size needed in your stash. :)
