Cabin Crochet of the Inland Waterways 1

This booklet includes ten classic crochet patterns that were traditionally used to decorate the cabin of a narrow boat. These patterns were either taken from old lace pieces or adapted from out-of-print pattern books that were popular during the era of trading narrowboats. In addition, some of the designs in the booklet were inspired by lace on exhibit at the National Waterways Museum in Ellesmere Port.

The origin of Cabin crochet, like many canal art traditions, is shrouded in mystery. It likely started from the Victorian era’s fondness for embellishing every possible surface with decorative trimmings, including adorning shelves and mantelpieces with cut paper or lace. With the introduction of crochet in the mid-19th century, even the poorest households could imitate these styles using “poor man’s lace” or crochet work.
