Mode of Procedure. 

Knit half the number of rounds that you have stitches set on — i.e., if you have 
84 stitciies on, Knit 42 rounds, 2 plain i i-iurj, or 2 plain 2 purl, accortling as your 
stitches divide liest by 3 or 4. It is a good plan to knit the last stitch of each round 
plain and ]-iurl alternately, and count liy the purls, this ensures each leg being exactly 
alike. \Vhen these rounds are done, knit 4 rounds plain, then narrow every Sth round 
on either side of the seamstitch, the third and fourth stitches after and before it. Do 
this 6 times if you are knitting with .Scotch fingering, 4 times if with Alloa Yarn. 
\\'hen the narrowing is done, knit half the number of rounds that you have stitches 
left — i.e., 36 rounds if you have 72 stitches. Now put half your stitches on i needle, 
with the .seamstitch in the centre, and knit 3 rows less than the number of stitches you 
have on your needle — i.e., 'i,}, if 36 and so on. It is a good plan to knit in a thinner 
thread of the shade you are using — Crewel wool answers well, and to do this toughens 
the heel wonderfully. The heel is always knitted plain and without a seamstitch. 
When you have knitted the requisite nunilier of rows, knit half your number of stitches, 
and 5 beyond, then knit 2 together, turn back, slip the first stitch, knit ten, take two 
together, turn back, slip the first stitch, knit to your last narrowing, and take the two 
together ne.xt beyond it ; turn back, and ]_iroceecl in this way till you have taken off all 
the stitches at either side of the middle 10 stitches. In Alloa, 8 in the middle is 
sufficient. Now pick up the stitches on either side of the heel, lor the foot, narrow 
within five stitches of where the heel joins the foot, every other round, till you have 
the same number as at the ankle. The seamstitch in the foot comes immediately after 
the right hand narrowing. As a rule, the same number of rounds as you have stitches 
left after your narrowings, i.e., the same number as you had at the ai'ikle, makes the 
foot right, but this is the only part for which no invariable rule can be laid down. 
When of a right length, divide your stitches equally on your three needles, and narrow 
every other round at the beginning and end of each needle till you have 12 stitches 
left, then make one out of every two stitches, by dividing them on two needles, and 
taking one from each needle together ; then cast off, leavmg about four inches of wool 
when you break off your thread, so as to be able to fasten it off securely. Of course 
your e.xtra thread for the heel is broken ofi" after you have picked up for the foot.

ADDRESS. 



Amongst the candidates for public attention whicli this period of the year usually 
ushers into existence, the Lady's Album of Fancy Woek offers its claims to the 
patronage of the ladies of the United Kingdom. Unlike the majority of those 
ephemeral works, the present volume belongs to no particular data ; its iaterest 
and usefulness will remain undimiaished far beyond the brief season generally l 
assigned to those elegantly-bound adornments of the boudoir and drawing-room. | 

The art of ornamental needle-work, the subject of the present volume, is of great ^ 
antiquity. In the early ages of the world it would appear, from the testimony \ 
of historians and poets, that ornamental needle-work was regarded with considera- j 
ble respect. The wise King of Israel alludes to it with approbation, as one of the \ 
praiseworthy pursuits of the exemplary woman. Helen and Penelope are repre- > 
sented by Homer as excelling in this art, and occupying their time in recording ; 
with the needle the heroic events passing aroxmd them. 

In this country embroidery was early a favourite employment with ladies of rank, 
and, in the spirit of the age, the exercise of this taste was devoted to the service 
of the church. The high degree of excellence to which our coimtrywomen attained 
in this admirable art — which, as it were, gives Ufe to silks and wools scarcely inferior 
to that of the paintings of the best masters — is attested by the very great request 
in which English embroidery was held throughout Europe, and the anxiety mani- 
fested that the robes of the priest and the adornments of the altar should be 
worked by the hands of Englishwomen. At no period has decorative needle-work 
been more generally practised than at the present, and its varieties afford ample 
scope for the exercise of that taste, ingenuity, and industry, which have been 
considered in all ages the unalienable inheritance of woman. Many of the beau- 
tiful creations of the needle may not unjustly be classed vrith works of art, and 
several pieces by Miss Linwood in this style of picturing a " Michael's grandeur and I 







IV 

; a Eaphael's grace" have won imrivalled admiration. Although this iateresting 

J occupation has so long been known, there have never been greater iaducements for 

I its practice than during the past few years. A high degree of artistic talent is 

; exercised in forming a countless variety of classic and elaborate designs, and the 

i results of the researches of modern science are employed in preparing the rich and 

: varied colours which produce so charming a tout ensemble, when blended by the < 

experienced hand of taste in pleasing harmony or gorgeous contrast. ' 

:; Although to embroidery must be conceded the precedence, yet knitting, netting, 5 

I and crochet are scarcely less worthy the favour of the patronesses of the needle ; i 

i indeed there are few articles either of ornament or use to which their exercise are \ 

■; not rendered available. Crochet, at present so fashionable a style of work, is com- s 

; paratively of modern origin ; we first hear of crochet as having been practised in i 

■' the remote regions of Scotland by the simple herdsman during his lonely watch on •; 

i the bleak hiU.-side; since then, however, this art has undergone considerable improve- i 

', ment, and, with the aid of skill and taste, articles are produced in crochet not I 

; inferior to the best specimens of English and Flemish tapestry. In knitting, i 

I articles are also manufactured of the greatest utility and beauty, and many of the \ 

i elegant laces in this style of work bear no inconsiderable resemblance to the most <, 

\ costly productions of foreign ingenuity. j 

' In recalling attention to the Lady's Axbum of Fancy Woek we feel assured I 

> its claims to public patronage are founded on no unworthy basis. Every care has I 

\ been taken to render this volume not only an indispensable adjunct, but also an 

J elegant ornament to the work-table. In no similar work vrill be foxmd so great a 

'i number and variety of patterns and designs. The illustrations are executed in a 

style of superiority hitherto unattempted in this department of artistic illustration. 

The directions for working the various patterns have been carefully prepared, and 

wUl be found clear and explicit, and whilst attention has been given to whatever is 

novel, elegant, and distingue, the useful has not been lost sight of in the Lady's 

Album of Fancy Woek.

EXPLAJSTATION OF THE VAEIOIJS TEEMS USED IN CEOCHET. 

Chain Stitch open Ceochet. — Tkis consists of five or any uneven number of loops 
attacked by a plain stitch, to every tkird stitch of the foundation, and in the succeeding 
rows to the centre loop of the chain of previous row. 

Theee Chain Crochet. — Work a chain of three loops as in chain stitch open crochet. 

Double Crochet. — Work as follows : having made a chain, pass the needle tlirough. 
the first loop on the chain, draw the cotton through the loop, there will now be two loops 
on the needle, tlirough these draw the cotton. 

Single Crochet. — Insert the needle in the loops and draw the cotton through this loop 
and that on the needle. 

Eibbed Crochet. — This is worked in a simUar manner to double crochet, only that the 
"under loop of the previous row is taken, and it is done in rows to and fro. 

Long Stitch. — Twist the cotton round the needle, pass it through the loop, draw the 
cotton through the first two loops on the needle, then catch the cotton again and di-aw it 
through the next two loops ; there will be one loop left on the needle. 

Double Long Stitch. — This resembles long stitch, excepting that the cotton is tvristed 
twice round the needle. 

Treble Long Stitch. — Twist the cotton three times round the needle. 

Single Open Crochet. — This is a succession of long stitches, with a ' chain stitch 
between each, missing one stitch of the foundation ; in the succeeding rows the long stitch 
is worked between the two long stitches of the preceding rows. 

Double Open Crochet. — This consists of two long stitches, then two chain stitches ; or 
it may be varied by making one long stitch, two chain stitches, missing the same number 
of stitches in foundation as there are chain stitches. 

Treble Open Crochet. — Work three long stitches, then three chain, missing three of 
the foundation. 

Vandyke Open Crochet. — Work tlii-ee long stitches into one of the foundation, make

i 



EMBEOIDEEY. 

The various elegant designs for handkerchiefs, jupons, shirts, &c. are worked in raised 
satin stitch. The material used is French working cotton ; numbers 100 or 120 will be 
found suitable for most purposes, but this must be regulated by the quaUty of the cambric. 
Handkerchiefs embroidered in colours continue to be extremely fashionable ; the patterns 
in the Lady's Album are of the most novel description, and quite suitable for this style of 
work. The names and initial letters are worked in satin stitch, sewing over the lines. 
The Eoman letters, figures, &c. are worked in cross stitch, with coloured marking cotton.

INDIAN ORNAMENTAL WORK. 

No. 8. — Netting and Crochet Box. 

Beautiful cabinets, work-boxes, work-tables, fire-screens, &c., may be painted 
in imitation of ivory inlaid with ebony by the following means : — Let your box 
be made of an elegant form, but merely of common white wood or deal, prepared 
as below: — Composition for the Surface of Wood. — Steep one ounce of glue 
in a pint of cold water all night ; throw off the water in the morning. Take 
six ounces of finest white-lead, in powder ; mix it by degrees in a mortar, with 
about half a pint of cold water, till it is perfectly smooth, and then place it, 
along with the glue, in a clean pan. Add half a pint more water ; set it on 
the fire, stirring constantly till it boils. Let it boil three minutes ; take it off" 
and pour it into a stone jar, and continue to stir it occasionally till cold. When 
cold, but before it congeals, take a clean paint-brush and paint your box with 
the composition. When it is dry, rub it over with sand-paper, to make it 
quite smooth ; then give it another coat of the white composition, repeating 
the rubbing with sand-paper as before. Repeat this same process five or six 
times, until you obtain a smooth equal white surface. When that is accom- 
plished, dissolve the fourth of an ounce of isinglass in a quarter of a pint of 
water ; when cold, but liquid, give the box a coat of it with a clean brush, and 
do not use the sand-paper after it. To Ornament the Box. — Lay a sheet of 
black tracing-paper on the box with the black side downwards ; then place a 
pattern above it, with the right side uppermost ; place a weight here and there, 
to prevent it slipping ; then trace over the outline with a rather blunt stiletto. 
On removing the paper you will find the outline of the pattern transferred to '\ 
the surface of the box. Trace over the outline, and shade, in lines, with a fine 
camelVhair pencil dipped in Newman's lamp-black ; fill in with the same. 
Varnish. — Place four ounces of rectified spirit of wine in a wide-mouthed 
bottle ; add one ounce of gum-sandarac, a quarter of an ounce of gum mastic, 
and a drachm of camphor, all in powder. Put a stopper in the bottle, set it 
near a fire, and shake it occasionally. When all the gums are quite dissolved, 
add one ounce of oil of turpentine ; then strain through muslin into another 



-Hi

clean, dry, wide-inouUied bottle. Let it stand a day or two before usino'. 
3Iode of Varnishing. — Take a large, clean, new varnish brush, dip it into the 
bottle, and then cover over all your box with it. When perfectly dry, give it 
another coat, and so on till it has had six coats. Let it remain untouched for 
two days ; rub it smooth with sand-paper ; then give it two more coats of 
varnish, and repeat the rubbing, being careful to wait between each coat till 
the last is dry, and not to rub with sand-paper sooner than two days after 
varnishing, and never give more than two coats of varnish in a day — one in 
the morning, another at night. When you think it looks clear and sufficiently 
thick, give it another coat without using the sand-paper after it ; let it stand 
four days ; then rub it all over with pounded rotten-stone, and wipe it off with 
a wet cloth ; after which take a little Florence oil and hair-powder, and polish 
with your hand.

row ; finishing stitch plain. You wiU perceive in the 4th row you have a plaia stitch at 
the commencement and end of the row, which is not in the second row. This occurs on

by withdrawing the mesh. After the third or plain row is done you wiU observe a sort of 
twist in one of the loops, then two loops plain, the fourth loop a sort of twist. You wiU by 
' this know, in the foUowiug row, that the two loops that are plain are those you work, by 
taking the last first and the first last, as described in the second row.

EMBROIDERY. 

No. 35. — Design for Screen. 

Materials — Drah or black satin, three shades of crimson, two of brown, three of green, 
three shades of amber, and two of blue embroidery silk or chenille. 

Frame the satin, and draw the pattern with a white crayon ; work in embroidery 
stitch, the flowers with the shades of crimson, the leaves with the greens, the 
stems with the browns, and the birds with the shades of blue, amber, and green, 
blending the colours as may be suggested by the taste and judgment of the 
worker. The above design is well adapted for a cheval-screen, but in drawing 
the pattern it will be necessary to considerably magnify the whole. The easiest 
method of drawing a design on satin for embroidery is to make use of a pounced 
pattern. This is prepared in the following manner : — Trace the outline of the 
pattern on thin paper, then neatly pierce it with a steel point. Fix the pattern 
thus prepared firmly on the material, rub the pounce over the paper so as to 
penetrate the perforated outline ; afterwards trace it over with a white crayon. 
Finely-ground pumice forms the best kind of pounce. Embroidery in chenille, 
though rather expensive, if neatly worked is extremely rich and elegant in 
appearance ; it is well adapted for screens, provided when made up the work is 
protected by glass from the dust. In working on satin a long-eyed needle is 
preferable. Chenille h broder is used for embroidery; and much unnecessary 
waste may be avoided if the needle is brought up close to the preceding stitch.
