Stories In Stitches 6: Reuse, Recycle, Repurpose | eBook Download


Reuse, Recycle, Repurpose

During the Civil War era, knitters were frugal and used what was on hand. Tobacco twine was used to make bedspreads, tents were unraveled and the string knit into socks, rugs were knit from cut-up shirts and dresses, and old fisherman’s sweater from Europe became winter wear for Americans on both side of the Mason-Dixon line.

Patterns in Book 6 include socks, Ganseys, rugs, and a Tunisian crochet sontag, as well as stories about Civil War bands, death row mugshots, and female abolitionist. It also includes a comprehensive primer on basic Gansey construction.
