In part 1 a wide range of different patterns has already been shown. The second part provides patterns that focus on stars and birds.
Many nice templates present a star in the centers.
Center star with petals
embroidered with wool in green with purple,
and in green with red.
Star with a cross in the center surrounded by tulips and petals without edge
and with an edge border
embroidered with wool and silk in green with purple,
and again embroidered with wool and silk in two greens with purple,
in green with red,
in black with purple,
in black with red.
I also have some templates without matching caps:
Star with tulips, hearts, and pinks,
in two similar versions
and star with tulips and pinks,
and tow others without stars.
I also have some caps without matching templates:
One attractive design exists only as drawing.
For me, the few patterns that include birds are especially interesting. The template maker Johannes Knapp (born 1868) from Loshausen created them.
I could show another twenty-three designs – as templates or embroidered. However, in the museums of Schwalmstadt-Ziegenhain and Schrecksbach-Holzburg one can certainly find even more examples of pretty traditional Schwalm caps and their templates.
Incidentally, Jessica Grimm visited the museum recently. She posted a nice and worthwhile article on her blog.
