Text correct vintage knitting patterns

Help us text correct vintage knitting patterns in magazines, books and newspapers




On Trove

This month, we're calling on volunteers to text correct vintage knitting patterns in magazines, books and newspapers.

The knitty-gritty of it

The contributions of the Trove community are a crucial part of what makes Trove so special. There are a few ways to contribute as a Voluntrove, but one of the best ways is by text correcting. By text correcting the transcripts of digitised material, volunteers help improve Trove's search results.

For the best experience, we recommend finding articles on topics that interest you, such as your hobbies (like knitting!). You will get to explore a topic you love, while making it more discoverable in Trove. It’s a win/win and even correcting just one article is helpful.
