Welcome to this Friday’s VTNS Fan Freebie!

The pattern today is from a 1916 Bear Brand Blue Book of Worsted Work the Fourteenth Volume. The knitting pattern texture is great and it has tassels at both ends.

Bear Brand Shetland Floss is used in blue and sand. Since this yarn is no longer available, the best I can figure is it was a 100% wool, lightweight two-ply yarn, like a lace or baby/fingering weight that’s used to make summer sweaters, women’s dresses, scarfs and children’s knit wear. Since it’s a pillow, if it’s going to be used and not just as decoration, you might want to use an acrylic, washable yarn.

This neck pillow uses a bolster pillow form that is 22 inches by 8 inches. I found one that is 20 inches by 8 inches you may be able to use that costs less. As with many antique knitting patterns, no gauge is given so you’re kind of on your own figuring out the best size.

Welcome to this Friday’s VTNS Fan Freebie!

I’m already looking forward to Fall, my favorite time of year, with the cooler weather and leaves turning shades of bright orange and yellow. I’ve noticed many stores are already filled with Autumn decorations.

Along those lines I’ve found a pretty leaf knitting pattern for a bedspread.

This bedspread or afghan is knitted in strips, then sewn together. There’s a diagonal strip, lace strip and edge. The finished size is up to you and  depends on the number of strips you knit.

A pair of steel size O knitting needles are used along with coarse knitting cotton.
