20.11.09 - 1976

Filet crochet smock, pattern-blagged

Original pattern published in ‘Knitting, Crochet & Embroidery’ in 1976.

My first pattern-blagged piece. I originally intended to make this piece ‘true to pattern’, but when I came to the first row of the original design (a floral border, created within the filet crochet structure), I rebelled. 

The text around the hem reads 'Amy Twigger Holroyd - Hereford - 20.11.09'. '1976', the date the pattern was published, is worked into the right sleeve.
