Free Victorian Knitting Patterns: 1854 Men’s Traveling Cap + Knitted Flowers

 

 

Two posts, two days in a row?  I’m on a roll!

Today I’m sharing a pretty cool couple of pages from an antique Godey’s Ladies’ Book from 1854 that I found in Missouri this summer.  I know I may be a bit crazy, but I LOVE this knitted traveling cap.  How steampunk is this?

As a little bonus, there’s a little over a page of instructions for knitted flowers.  There’s no illustrations, so you’d have to try them out yourself from the old written instructions and see how they turn out.

If you make either of these items, please share with me!
