Gutenberg.org just posted a book circa 1846 on their site last month:

When looking at the patterns, seaming = purling.

There are some amazing antique knitting designs on-line. If you put that search into google etc you come up with quite a list. I'm grateful so many people who came before us archived patterns and so on as they did!

I have a TON of Workbasket magazines, going back to the 50's.
3 huge boxes of them! There are loads of patterns in there, but I don't have time to go through them all. :pout:
