I love wild, untamed gardens, and when (in “Pride & Prejudice”) Lady Catherine de Bourgh mentions to Lizzy she would like to take a turn around the “prettyish little wilderness” I wanted to design a shawl with that in mind. Not quite a triangle, not quite a crescent, it is a shawl that hugs around your shoulders with rows of flowers and a lace accent.

53” wide and 17” deep (135cm x 43cm)

Yarn: 440yds (402m) of fingering weight yarn
Sample: Palouse Yarn Co - Merino Fine (100% superwash merino) 475 yds (433m)/113g in “Wine Country”
Notions: US 4 (3.5mm) 40” (102cm) circular needle (or needle size required to obtain gauge)
US 7 (4.5 mm) for picot bind off
3 markers; Darning needle; waste yarn for provisional cast on

19 stitches over 36 rows = 4” in St st, on smaller needles, gently blocked.
Gauge is not critical, but will affect size and yarn amounts needed.

Pattern was originally pubilshed in the fall 2015 special edition of Interweave “Jane Austen Knits”.
