Grandmother Anderson's Pattern

Free Knitting Counterpane Patterns

Grandmother Anderson's Pattern (shown half-size) was worked with cotton carpet warp on size 1 needles.

This pattern is from a counterpane belonging to our family friend Mary Elizabeth Allen. It was knit by her grandmother in Canton, Mississippi, around the time of the Civil War. I have also seen examples of counterpanes using this well-known pattern or a variation on it at the Landsmuseum in Zurich, Switzerland, and at Como, a historical restoration near Melbourne, Australia.

Worked on two needles, this intermediate pattern starts with the raised-leaf pattern set on a reverse stockinette ground. Two rows of decorative eyelets introduce the central embossed area of the pattern, which uses the extra cast-on stitches as the foundation for a field of bells. The border repeats the first 40 rows of the main pattern and then can be completed with a tied tassel at the top and bottom points of the edging (see p. 150). You might also want to use the Purse and Garter-Stitch Insert pattern on p. 156 before working the border, as I have seen done in a counterpane similar to this one.

Cast on 2 stitches.

Melbourne, Australia, boasts a number of Victorian homes called Terrace Houses, which are narrow in width, several stories high and flanked by terraces in front and gardens in back. A resident of one of these wonderful abodes, knitter Margaret Murray, graciously welcomed me into her home during my 1978 Australian sojourn to show me a trio of counterpanes she had made.

One of the spreads was worked in her own variation on an old pattern. To accent the large leaves, I replaced the original reverse stockinette stitch between them with three small leaves. Worked on five needles from the center out, this pattern is for the intermediate knitter.
