Lady Bertram Shawlette

The red lace shawlette that I finished last week has a name: the Lady Bertram Shawlette. (I was on a Jane Austen kick there for a while).

She had her photo-shoot for her glamour photos.

The unblocked shawl measures 44” across the top and 16” down the center back. Blocked it measures 58” across and 23” down the center back. These measurements are approximate because they depend on how severely you block your piece.

The shawl pictured was knit with 1 150-gram 574-yard skein of Wollmeise Sock yarn, with 71 grams left over, so approximately 306 yards were used.

And the pattern is now available for sale in my Ravelry store, here.

The green shawl that was shown blocking yesterday sure was a quickie! I started it on Thursday and finished it yesterday morning. It is knit from Dragonfly Fibers Dragon Sock in the “Prophets of Persia” colorway.

The all-over lace pattern is supposed to represent flowers, and I chose a relentless green colorway to represent a harbinger of spring, so this will be called the Printemps Shawlette.

Expect a pattern soon. icon smile Lady Bertram Shawlette

Does Gwendolyn look a bit over-dressed?
