The digital Richard Rutt Collection offers free online access to a range of old knitting books, courtesy of the Winchester School of Art and the University of Southampton (UoS).
Thanks to their great digitalisation work, such rare items are now easily accessible: simply visit their webpage and click on the book images that you see listed there. For each book, you will thus access a PDF document (which can be browsed and saved to your computer, if wished). No need to log in or register. Isn’t that cool?
A little example:
“Myra’s knitting lessons. No.1. Containing the rudiments of knitting and various useful patterns for this work”, circa 1800.
I thought to share the info… hopefully it may be interesting to some of you or your friends. I just think they made such an amazing work to give free and easy access to everyone! Enjoy!
