Welcome to this Friday’s VTNS (Vintage Textile and Needlework Sellers) Fan Freebie!

These sweet knitted scarf patterns, the Geraldine and Verona, are from a 1915 Fleisher’s Knitting & Crocheting Manual. Each is large enough to be used as a nice shoulder shawl.

The Shetland Floss yarn required in the Geraldine Scarf is a light, soft 2-ply yarn or a lace weight. The Highland Wool for the Verona Scarf is probably a worsted 100% wool yarn. Not sure on that one, but the gauge is given so you can experiment with different types of yarn.

Here is a close up of the stitches used in these scarfs:

Sometimes it can be hard to meet the right gauge for an old pattern like this. This page should help when it comes to the sizing of the needles for knitting the scarfs.

The system used in Fleisher’s Knitting and Crocheting Manual is the metric system and the numbers represent the actual diameter of the hooks and needles in millimeters.

Welcome to this Friday’s VTNS Fan Freebie!

Do you need a quick Christmas present? This wonderful vintage Knitted Striped Scarf pattern can be done in a jiffy. You may even have enough yarn in your stash so you won’t have to go out and buy more.

What about using team colors to wear at the game or your little ones favorite colors? Even easier would be using just one color yarn. Lots of possibilities with this scarf! It is knitted to form a tube that leaves no seams. It’s 9 x 60 inches without the fringe.

Here’s how you add fringe to a scarf or any item you’ve crocheted or knitted:

First, find an item to wrap your yarn around (this pattern suggests 9 inch long strands, so an object 4.5 inches would do that). Wind the yarn around your item, loosely enough so that your scissors can get underneath to cut it. Cut the yarn from the skein then cut it from your form. Now you have several pieces of yarn all the same length.

Decide how many pieces you’d like to use for your project (this pattern suggests 5 strands for one fringe). Fold the pieces in half. Start with the right side of your project facing up. Insert a crochet hook in the first loop from the bottom up. Take the pieces folded in half, hook them and pull them through. Now take the ends and push them through the loop that is made folding the pieces in half.

Pull the free ends gently and evenly. Continue down the edge of your project.

You’ll need 4 Ply Knitting Worsted yarn. 3 two ounce skeins in each color and a pair of No. 11 Knitting Needles. Gauge is 10 sts = 3 inches; 10 rows = 1 inch.
