Welcome!

This ongoing project is an effort to scan craft pattern publications that are in the public domain, to preserve them, so we can keep our craft heritages in our hands. Most of these scans have been graphically edited to make the images easier for craft workers to see, and to reduce file sizes. They are available, for free, to anyone who wants them, for educational, personal, artistic and other creative uses.

Gittertull Hakelei

Nine solid-color patterns

HKB [Heinrich Kuehn, Berlin]

Nine handpainted pattern sheets. Fairly abstract patterns, for crochet, it says. A tea cosy, and several round and square designs, possibly for doilies or rugs. The instructions say something like one single crochet, one chain crochet. Gittertull is a kind of coarse tulle, made with partly tinsel threads.
