From Weldon’s Practical Knitter, Twenty-Fourth Series (1893)

“The head of this hood is worked in plain knitting with white wool, and pink is used for the pretty scalloped border which goes round the front and along the bottom of the curtain, the combination is pleasing, and the result is a charming little hood that is certain to give satisfaction.”

The original pattern calls for “a small quantity of pink and white Peacock fingering, and a pair of No. 12 steel knitting needles.”
