This pattern comes from Weldon’s Practical Knitter, Number 49, Twelfth Series (1890). It is also published in Weldon’s Practical Needlework, Volume 5, Interweave Press, 2001.

The original pattern calls for “dark brown Berlin wool” and “white Shetland wool.“ Knitting needles No. 12 and No. 8 (modern equivalents 2.50mm/US 2 and 4mm/US 6.) The anklet is knit in two pieces, either flat or in the round, and the lining is sewn into the outside piece. There are also instructions for a crocheted edge.

As with most 19th century patterns, there is no gauge/tension stated in the pattern. There are also no stated finished dimensions. The pattern is written entirely in text and there are no charts. There are, however, two illustrations.
