SUMMARY- This is an excerpted chapter translated into English by Ms. Chesno from Ich kann handarbeiten, edited by Mizi Donner and Carl Schnebel from the original German edition(Ullstein & Co., Berlin and Vienna,1913). The patterns are fairly traditional stuff presented in written notation. Illustrations are not clear or large enough to see all but general detail. A lot of the patterns incorporate onion rings to nice effect.
