Erikas 80 – Kunstgestrickte Kostbarkeiten – Pattern 9 – Rosenblatt – Doily in Above Photo Knitted By Marie Shanley

Someone asked for a translation of the text of this pattern, but when I went to copy the original text, I realized how much my recharting habits have changed since 2006! The alignment of stitches in my original rechart was exactly the same as the source publication. However, therein the stitches are aligned to resemble the shape of the finished cloth rather than how the pattern is actually knit, so… I reformatted it, added stitch counts and written instructions. However, I couldn’t figure out where to include the above photo, sorry, Marie! I will include it in the Gallery that is still a work in progress.

When I first saw the chart for the Tricot d’Art doily in the photo immediately below left, I thought it was upside down! ;-) Of course, after actually reading the chart, was disabused of the notion that the center of Niebling’s Trollblume was his only pattern knitted from the outside in. I then noticed the Erikas 603 patterns, of which the Model E might become a beret, but can’t decide on a border yet, so. As for the photo immediately below right, choosing a nice border for it is also a challenge for another day, or one of you! Lastly, casting on the largest of the Erikas requires 880 stitches! Across 4 needles, that would be 220 for each.

There are 14 doilies pictured below. They are the absolute smallest of my favorites, two of which are modifications so that they would be 22 rounds. There are more groups to come, in progressively larger sizes. Since they’re all so gorgeous size is the only way I can figure out how to publish them. Of course they are in both charted and written forms.

Finally, as I send the ones I knitted for the photos as holiday gifts, will be experimenting with glittery paint and beads. Looking forward to see all your FO’s! Happy Knitting!

Thought I would have to reconstruct the border for Version 2. However, just happened to be perusing the Burda E523 magazine and noticed the exact border around a woven circular doily! Was so happy I couldn’t wait to rechart it! Am inclined to believe that Shimmons designed both versions of the pattern as a “work for hire” but without attribution, in part because there is a small border published elsewhere that is similar to Version 2 which was attributed to her.

As for the original Lyra, didn’t realize I had removed the page for it. It’s back now! For Purchase Info: Click Here.

As can be seen above, the two patterns are almost identical, their charts not so much, which is why they are not combined into the same PDF.

Happy Summer Knitting!

Being way too lazy to work a pattern on every round (as in Shetland knitting), the pattern on the left was long ignored until I purchased what turns out to be a really rare French magazine (Votre Mode Tricots d’Art – Aiguilles et Crochet – Numero Special Trimestriel, published around 1931) that contains the two patterns above center and right. Most of the patterns therein are written versions (in French of course) of many classic early Nieblings, one of which named “Myrthe”, I will be recharting because the photo in the Votre Mode is more appealing than the one in Beyer Kunststricken Band 228, which contains the chart for it.

Meanwhile, since all of these single strand lace patterns are small, would love to hear from those who are brave enough to try to knit them! ;-)

Tulipier (Tulip Tree)

As can be seen from the above photo, the blossom part of “tulips” seem to be knitted in the hex mesh pattern. However, the sequence of stitches used to create the pattern is decidedly different from that which appears in all Niebling patterns that I know of. This pattern is from Le Tricot d’Art – Album 1 – Model 12, but the designer’s name is not given, and he or she is definitely not Herbert Niebling. Forgot to make a screenshot of my rechart to show that the sequences of yarn over twice, skp twice can be seen. In other words, the k2tog is completely omitted from the hex mesh part of the pattern. In addition, at the time of publication, there may have been some anti German sentiment as reflected in the fact that the knit 1, and yarn over symbols are reversed (which makes reading the original chart much fun). Also, the sk2p symbol looks like the increase 1 to 3 symbol. The skp and k2tog symbols at least slant in the appropriate direction. The knit 1 through back loop symbol is never used. Towards the end of the pattern, I incorporated the knit 1 in running thread symbol to make increases so that the stitch count matches that of the border. There was no indication of how to do this in the original instructions except to say “make an increase”. Fortunately, there were no errors in the original chart, as reflected in the stitch counts in my rechart. As for the publisher, V. Ritzenthaler, in Mulhouse-Dornach, France, they published at least 4 “Albums” which are very difficult to find, but am on the lookout, of course!

6 Pattern Repeats – Originally Published In Beyers Bunte Reihe, Band 2036/Kunststricken II – Picture 8

Wasn’t aware of the 6 repeat version of this pattern until I discovered it in its source magazine. Was planning on using the 4 repeat version in a collection of small doilies that I am working on, and trying to prevent from growing too large! There are 13 or 14 small doilies in it so far. Am also having fun with Size 1.25 mm (US Size 4-0) needles, one of which I keep dropping and have somehow hidden from myself, and so have to order another set. Turns out Wilhelmine has too many rounds for the small doily collection, and can’t be turned into a doily beret as can be done with many patterns with more than 30 rounds. Will post about my progress and adventures with the small doily collection in the coming days.

The first pattern is one of two that I literally forgot I had!!! The other one I forgot is Steinrose, which hopefully will get published in the coming months. The Star Flower is part of my baby blanket series, and is the least interesting one, but is still pretty interesting in that it begs to be knitted with different colors. I just can’t decide on a specific combination for more than five minutes. I did not include instructions for borders worked in i-cord or picot hem bind off. However, am sure there are plenty of resources on the interweb.
