n the Regency era, turbans and Greek-style headwear were popular, and they were
very similar to modern slouchy hats. This hat was inspired by two
characters—Miss Jane Bennett and Miss Jane Fairfax—as well as Jane Austen
herself. All three Janes exhibited grace and elegance wherever they went. Miss
Jane’s hat has a graceful cabled hatband with dainty embroidery and an elegant
body gathered into bands of reverse Garter stitch. The hatband is worked flat
and sewn together; stitches are then picked up around the top of hatband and
joined for knitting in the round.
