Not quite as fancy as the last ones I set up. If you go to my site there's 30 pages of patterns.

No pictures, these are from a textbook used by women at the time, first published in 1893. The patterns run from basic to complex, as you'd expect in a textbook of the time.

The patterns included are: A Woman's Knitted Vest, A Child's Knitted Petticoat, a Penelope or Knitted Sleeveless Bodice, Infant's Knitted Jacket, Baby's Hood, Another Baby's Hood, Boy's Fisher Cap, Comforter, Comforter in Raised Stitch, Comforter (Imitation Network), Muffatees, Shawl in Garter stitch, Shawl in Fancy stitch, A Small Shawl, A Simple Shawl, Shawl in Star stitch, A Pair of Mittens, Knitted Lace Edging, Knitted Edgings including Van Dyke and One Hole, Child's Knitted Muffs, Quilts, Couvrettes and Bassinet Covers, Knitted Bead Frilling. Also instructions on several stitch types, including Brioche, Herring-bone, Rug stitch and Shell patterns.

There are several pages - roughly 50 - of knitting instruction as well. Would you want me to put that up as well? I'm not sure if there's any point to adding instruction pages. As you'd expect, the instructions go from the basics to the more complex knitting.

ookpik;

For a picture of muffatees - and a bilingual pattern (in german and english) go to:
http://www.knitting-and.com/knitting/patterns/mittens/Armstutzerl.pdf

Don't know whether they are the same as salmonberry's pattern though.

Oops. Didn't notice - until just now - how far back in time this post is.
Suitable when viewing such old, old patterns?

Thank you, salmonberry.

Alas, no, nor I. Certaintly I hope the error is soon corrected, for if there's one thing I need to knit this summer, it's muffatees.
