Recently Jean Watt from Conval Court in Aberlour found an old knitting pattern book and has generously donated it to the project. The fragile pages have been scanned and here is the knitting pattern book. Please note: Unfortunately some of the pages were missing including the cover.
There are some fascinating patterns here including Lady’s Spencer, Puzzle jacket, Lady’s cycling knickerbockers, Child’s combinations, Nightingale crochet jacket, Lady’s shoulder cape, iron holder, bed stocking for old people and baby’s gaiter with kneecap combined.
