Fashionable women of the Regency period favored beautifully draped sheer gowns in delicate shades of white and pale pastels. The necklines of their evening dresses were often cut quite low to highlight the chest area and young women would use diaphanous scarves trimmed with delicate lace to tuck into their bodices and cover their shoulders. These gossamer scarves serve as an inspiration for Georgiana.

Named for Mr. Darcy’s beautiful younger sister, Georgiana is worked in colorful fingering yarn for a modern twist. The open lace is framed by two areas of more solid stitches – the fan lace, which shapes the bottom edge, and the stockinette section at the neck. The shawlette is worked in one piece starting with the cast on at the bottom edge of the lace panels followed by easy short rows (no wraps), which shape its crescent form.
