This graceful shawlette takes a natural, deep, butterfly shape. Wear it as a cowl, a deep collar, a shawlette, or a stole.

Its lace edging, which can be beaded or left as is, uses a favorite Victorian motif. Furthering its period evocation, this design relies heavily upon garter stitch, which was very popular among Victorian knitters.

A good travel piece, Lady Windemere’s Fan is suitable for intermediate beginners. Instructions include hyperlinks for online tutorials.

Handmaiden Sea Silk gives this garment a rich drape that’s made even weightier by adding beads at the hem. The model was retro-beaded with garnets, a Victorian favorite. You can knit your beads right in, if beads you want. The garment also looks good all by itself, without beads.
