“We have all a better guide in ourselves, if we would attend to it, than any other person can be.”

Fanny Price, Mansfield Park

The dual nature of Mansfield Park and the lives of its inhabitants prompted me to design two wraps (The Misses Price and Misses Bertram) using similar elements, yet with different characters. Increasing and decreasing needle and hook sizes shapes both wraps (this pattern is for the Misses Price Wrap only), knit sideways around the body. Similar construction and stitches can be combined for quite different fits and effect.

The version for the Misses Price is an empire-waist vest also worked from a center cable motif, worn off the shoulder but close to the body thanks to armholes slit into the sides. Novelty buttons and a crocheted bottom floral edge finish this piece.
