Unlike other antique pattern sellers Dakota Prairie Treasures stands alone in providing our especially created yarn, threads, needle and hooks conversion charts with every antique crochet and knitting pattern product! We diligently researched and created our 4-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 4 Help Sections:
Section 1) containing 3 very detailed yarn, knitting needle and crochet hook conversion charts. Example, if you Civil War era pattern used "Double Berlin Wool" you will know that our modern yarn equivalent is "Worsted or Mohair," etc.
Section 2) contains Civil War Era (1867) crochet work instructions which includes everything from "Position of the hands in crochet," various stitch instructions, working with several colors, working over cord, crocheting with beads, making "Jeweled (beaded) D'Oyleys, "Contractions in Crochet," how to "Increase the Size of an Engraved Pattern," and more!
Section 3) contains Civil War Era (1868) "Explanation of Contractions used in Crochet, Tatting, Knitting, etc." plus "Printer's Marks" used as needlework instruction abbreviations.
Section 4) contains Victorian Era (c1880's) "Actual-Size" images of bone and amber crochet hooks, plus "Actual-size" wood, bone, amber and steel knitting needles. 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, just 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 charts carry easily to the craft shop when you are hunting to find the just the right sized needle or hook if you find you don't have the size needed in your home stash. :)
The ladies of earlier times put their hands to such marvelous work and now you can too! These are beautiful items and sure to delight you and yours! These instructions are very clear and easy to follow and yet the experience needle worker will be capable of altering as per individual needs and artistic whim.
The antique and vintage yarns, beads, needles, etc., can be found on Atomic Mall quite readily. You just have to hunt a little bit! :) Or, of course, you can utilize contemporary tools and materials found at a nearby fabric, craft or hobby store
