During the Regency era, it was very common for women to make knitted pin balls as gifts for dear friends. They used personalized medallion-like symbols (often derived from printed motifs used for embroidery samplers) to represent love, unity, loyalty, joy, devotion, or whatever concept appealed to their rich, creative minds. This knitted pin ball pattern is an excellent project for any knitter inspired by Jane Austen and the time in which she lived.
