• Short Summary

    Demonstration of a new method of knitting blankets, jumpers and slippers.

  • Description

    Titles read: "NOW OUR SPECIAL SECTION for the Ladies - Feminine pictorialities (No. 3) - Woollies."

    Location of events unknown - probably United States of America.

    Various shots show a new method of making a woven blanket that is neither knitting or crochet. A woman is seen demonstrating how to use a long needle that looks like a crochet hook; further extensions can be added to make larger blankets, which can apparently be made in a matter of hours.

    The woman shows us a finished rug then models a jumper made in the same way. C/U of a pair of knitted slippers that "just invite cold feet to occupy them".

    Note: female commentator.
