The Weldon’s Practical Needlework collection put together by PieceWork is a wonderful glimpse into the past. Originally published in the late 1800s, they are a collection of patterns for various handcrafts, including crochet, knitting, tatting, needlework, and macramé.

The two scarves shown here are a new spin on edgings. The crochet pattern is worked from the center out in the round and uses the Wave Braid Edging from Volume 2 (Weldon’s Practical Crochet Edgings, Fifth Series). The knit pattern is only a few stitches wide and worked from the short edge; here, Katrina King used the Striped Border from Volume 5 (Weldon’s Practical Knitter Edgings, Fourteenth Series).
