Mrs Branson Wristwarmers
After marrying the family chauffeur, Lady Sybil would have needed to make adjustments to her opulent lifestyle. While these lacy wristwarmers would make an excellent showing at Downton for a formal evening dinner, they are also simple enough to be worked at home by any industrious knitter, and use only 40 grams of yarn for the pair. A small scattering of beads is an optional way to give these some extra flair; splurge on a few crystals, or follow Sybil’s lead by rummaging through your bead box and using whatever you have on hand.
