2023-08-31 New Publications: Filet crochet pattern, a small Berlin woolwork pattern and a full whitework alphabet


N-YS007 Hertz & Wegener – XII Filet crochet corner
Single sheet, printed in blue. A corner with paisley figures, and two different square designs filling in the opposite corner in a chessbord placement. Both could be used separately. From the print it’s clear that this is for filet crochet, but the chart can also be used for filet, cross-stitch or similar counted work.
Scan donated and edited by Sytske Wijnsma.

J-TL008 Small rose in irregular frame
Small handpainted square design, no publisher or number given. An irregular frame with a rose in the middle, a small rose in the upper right corner, and in the bottom half a forget-me-not and a rose bud.
From the collection of the Textile Research Center in Leyden (acquisition number TRC 2018.1575), published with their permission. Charted by Sytske Wijnsma.

E-RY002 Petit Echo de la Broderie – Alphabet au plumetis et pois
All 26 letters in whitework. It appeared in a year’s worth of issues of the Petit Echo de la Broderie, around 1903. They were in three sizes, for sheets, napkins or pillowcases, and the smallest for handkerchiefs. This is the middle size.
