Original lace pattern by Mrs. Jane Gaugain.

Pattern Description from Victorian Lace Today: “This scarf pattern, dated 1847, was one of the delightful surprises I encountered in my voyage of discovery. Most patterns from this period are far less elaborate. While intense concentration is required in knitting this piece initially, it is not difficult once the layout is understood. This fascinating border is true knitted lace, as every row of the repeat is patterned.”
