Miss Bingley's Lace Wrist Warmers
Peeking out from the cuffs of her Spencer jacket, Miss Bingley’s lace wrist warmers add a touch of flirtatious elegance to her ensemble. Fashionable ladies of the Regency era wore lightweight muslin gowns year-round, so knitted wrist warmers made a cozy addition during the winter months.
As a modern accessory, they are perfect for keeping one’s fingers free for texting or computer work, and make a quick gift for a special Austen admirer.
I-cord and a ruffled picot bind-off add a lovely finishing touch.
