Five attractive sailing ship designs from a bygone age.
The designs are:-
U.S.S. Constitution known as 'Old Ironsides,' is a wooden-hulled, three-masted frigate of the United States Navy. Named after the United States Constitution, she is the oldest commissioned ship afloat in the world, and is still in service in the US Navy. The Constitution was one of the six original frigates authorised for construction by the Naval Act of 1794 and was launched in 1797. Joshua Humphreys designed them to be the Navy's capital ships and so Constitution and her sisters were larger and more heavily armed than the standard frigates of the period.
The Mayflower was the famous ship that transported the Pilgrims from Plymouth, England, to Plymouth Colony, Massachusetts, in 1620. The vessel left England on September 6, and after a gruelling journey marked by disease, the ship dropped anchor inside the hook tip of Cape Cod on November 11. The Mayflower originally was destined for the Hudson River, north of the 1607 Jamestown Settlement. However, the Mayflower went severely off-course as the winter approached and remained in Cape Cod Bay.
The Nina (the Spanish word for 'girl') was one of the three ships used by Christopher Columbus in his first voyage towards the Indies in 1492. The real name of the Nina was Santa Clara. The name Nina was probably a pun on the name of her owner, Juan Nino. She was a caravel-type vessel.
The other ships of the Columbus expedition were the Pinta and the Santa Maria The Nina was by far Columbus' favourite. She was originally three-mast lateen sail rigged caravela latina, but she was re-rigged as caravela redonda at Azores with square sails for better ocean performance.
The other designs are Smooth Sailing and The Storm
USS Constitution's pattern and key is printed over four A4 pages and the design area is 135 by 134 stitches.
The Mayflower ( as illustrated) is also charted over four A4 pages and is worked over 114 by 165 stitches.
The Storm stitch count is 116 x 149 stitches.
The Nina measures 8.25 by 10.75 inches over 14 count.
Smooth Sailing is the smallest design in the booklet and is worked over 87 stitches wide by 66 high.
The charts for all these designs use cross stitch, backstitch and long stitch in stranded cottons with some sampler threads, overdyed floss and blending filament.
The 20 page booklet has all the charts and instructions ans a conversion chart for the shades used in DMC, Anchor and J & P Coats floss.
Nominal size: approx. 21 cm (W) X 30 cm (H) (8 X 12 in)
