This pattern comes from Weldon’s Practical Knitter, Number 36, Ninth Series (1888). It is also published in Weldon’s Practical Needlework, Volume 3, Interweave Press, 2000.

The original pattern calls for “Single Berlin wool, crimson and fawn colour, and black and white for joining the stripes together,” and “Knitting needles No. 10 (modern equivalent 3.50mm/US 4.)

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 is no chart or illustration.
