Digital Resources from the Knitting Reference Library WSA The Richard Rutt Collection.
A particular distinction and strength of his collection is the range and number of nineteenth century knitting books which commenced publication in the 1830s. They may be seen as a precursor of the contemporary knitting pattern and the “how-to-knit” books which are still being published, over 180 years later. In addition, his library includes a comprehensive run of the knitting magazine Stitchcraft dating from the 1930s to the 1980s which richly illustrates the changing graphic image and layout of knitting patterns through the decades of the twentieth century. He also had an interest in Scandinavian and Korean knitting which is reflected in his collection.
Historisch museum Deventer The now-closed historical museum of Deventer, that gave us permission to chart and publish selected items from their collection.
The collection Landwehr-Vogels is probably the most extensive collection of Berlin woolwork patterns in Europe. The patterns can be viewed in detail, but not downloaded. We're not allowed to repost or even chart them, either (and I asked). That said, it's fabulous eye candy. The link has some search criteria pre-filled. Our collection and theirs overlap for some twenty items.
