Countess of Grantham
Could a real live countess have owned an accessory like this? Absolutely! The design is based on a Victorian capelet created by A. Walles in Paris In 1895. The beads and velvet of the original have been re-interpreted into a knitterly accessory featuring two-color stranded colorwork with cables. It’s a challenging but highly satisfying showpiece which can be worn with pride with jeans or on the dressiest of occasions.
