holy cow, it's a blog post!
i was gifted with a antique book of knitting, crochet, and "other" patterns, a couple months ago. since i found that a PDF was available, i gave the physical book to someone who would appreciate such a thing, and started in translating antique knit-speak to modern notation. (this is starting to become a theme!)
it seems that Ravelry doesn't want patterns that aren't a finished "thing," so i'm posting the plain translated pattern here. the finished wrist warmers/ finger-less mitts are on Rav at http://www.ravelry.com/projects/danigeek/beautiful-lace-cuffs. the pattern will be uploaded there shortly... i hope!
the base pattern can be accessed with this "elegant and finely crafted link"... Beautiful Lace.
feel free to comment for any reason whatsoever,,, except spam, of course!
