When imagining the colors for the Regency Collection I saw myself walking through the fields just like Lizzy Bennet or spending the afternoons chatting away with Miss Lucas. I wanted a shawl that would almost be like a blanket, something to wrap myself in as I imagined evenings by the window or of long afternoons walking the grounds of Longbourn with the Bennet sisters in tow. This is a simple triangle shawl with lots of fringe. The stitches used make this shawl reversible while also allowing you to use multiple colors. While this shawl has written instructions it is more of a recipe allowing you to change the size and look of your finished object. Keep mind that if modifications are made your shawl will either require more or less yardage than what was used in the sample shawl depicted.

This shawl was created to utilize the Regency Collection colors inspired by the world of Jane Austen that were offered by Pandia’s Jewels.
