A Group of Children's Garments in Knitting and Crochet
''These garments are undoubtedly easy to make, and may be attempted by even inexperienced workers as well as by those who have but little leisure to devote to the fabrication of articles of more elaborate pattern; at the same time they are strong and serviceable and well-shaped, and may be adapted to the status of intended wearers according to the use of the best or the cheapest wools; for charity purposes they are invaluable; if, howerver, wool is to be purposely bought, we recommend getting a good strung kind, for of course such will wear longest.''
