Lydia Bennet Shawl
Pride and Prejudice is one of my favorite books. Lydia makes me laugh. She is her mother's favorite child and Mrs. Bennet adores and spoils her. She was allowed into society far earlier than what would be deemed appropriate. Maybe her immaturity leads to her poor and humorous romantic choices. They are somewhat relatable though!
This is the first accessory in my Bennet Sisters Knitwear Collection.
Knitting of this shawl starts at the small point and increases along one edge to create a right triangular shawl. It features simple garter stitch with decorative edge patterns. The patterns include eyelets, decreases, and low-profile bobbles.
