SUMMARY- This is a lovely set of patterns made from basic tiling motifs. Ms. Smith did at least one other set of patterns for this publisher(see listing below). She may well have done more - I don't know. I had only previously been aware of Booklet #6(see list below of some of their other publications), and booklet #11 came out in 1950 along with the other 10 previous knitting/tatting pattern sets. Marianne and Walter Kinzel published patterns up through 1958. So here's a mystery you can help me solve. If you have patterns published later and can help fill in the list below, please get in touch with me through My Contact Page.
