I’ve always loved Jane Austen. I’ve been inspired by the beautiful clothing the women of her time wore.
It’s a shawl, but not quite.
It can be elegant.
But always fun.
In cool, natural cotton, it’s comfortable all year round.
In reality, I am a very practical, lazy, and time-crunched knitter. Because of this, the (dare I call it?) “pattern” can be summed up in about 2 sentences;
You will need about 250 yards worsted weight cotton yarn and size 11 straight needles. Cast on 120 stitches, and knitting every row, decrease 1 stitch at each end every row until you run out of stitches.
You could knit this in your sleep, and yet feel completely accomplished afterwards. Not to mention cozy!
