This pattern is printed in Weldon’s Practical Knitter, Series 14, Number 55, 1890, and can also be found in the facsimile series, Weldon’s Practical Needlework, Volume 5, Interweave Press, 2001.

This “narrow” edging was recommended for shawls or scarves or “underlinen,” and could be “worked with Shetland wool and steel needles No. 15” or “the finest Fife Lace Yarn and steel needles No. 16” or “the thicker Fife Lace Yarn and needles No. 14” (modern equivalents 1.75mm/US 00 for the first two sizes and 2mm/US 0 for the third.)

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 is, however, an illustration.
