Description
"I find that anything Jane Austen makes me happy—I enjoy the stories, the ups and downs, the romance, and the clothes. When thinking of what to design, the muff was an accessory that was interesting and a bit frivolous, too. Muffs of the Regency period were characteristically made from fur or silk and were quite large. I chose a chunky yarn and the leaf pattern to give the muff depth and texture. My goal was to create a beautiful and functional accessory. The piece is knitted in the round and uses several techniques—provisional cast-on, light lace pattern incorporating increases and decreases—without being difficult to create." - Karen Holmes
