Oh my!! This takes me back to the days of my youth. We had a Patricia Roberts pattern book at home and my dear Mum used to knit the creations covered in bobbles and different surfaces for me and I loved it as no none else had them. i remember her moaning like mad when i picked a particular design with a little up-turned collar and covered in bobbles top be knitted in black – her poor eyes! Wonderful to be reminded.
