God Would Not Have Made Me A Crocheter If He Wanted Me To Cook And Clean Shirt

Knitted silk jackets were fashionable in the early 17th century, worn as informal dress and known as ‘waistcoats’. Our collection includes a particularly fine example of a knitted silk jacket from this period. It was knitted by hand in plain silk yarn and silk partially wrapped in silver thread, in contrasting colours of blue and yellow. The back and two front pieces have been knitted flat before being sewn together, with the abstract floral design imitating the appearance of woven silk textiles. It’s been suggested that knitted panels, typically used in the construction of such jackets, were imported from Italy and were put together by the client.

The jacket is finely finished with silk-lined sleeves and silver thread buttonholes.A hand-knitted petticoat in our collection, dating to the first half of the 18th century, demonstrates extraordinary knitting skill, unparalleled in any other known collection. The cream-coloured petticoat has a surface decoration of trees and animals, including an elephant, a lion, an ostrich and a rhinoceros. It has been knitted in the round with no seams and has a circumference of over three metres at the widest point. It’s not known exactly how or why a piece of such size and detail was made.Knitting guilds developed from as early as the 14th century and another virtuoso example of 18th-century knitting in our collection is a carpet or hanging, believed to be an example of a journeyman’s work.
