Longbourn Mitts Knitting Pattern Download
These long lace mitts were inspired by the ivy that graces the outer walls of Longbourn, the Bennet family home in Pride and Prejudice. The mitts are worked in the round and feature a panel through which I-cords are laced to echo the vertical lace design. The I-cords can be omitted or thin satin ribbon can be substituted for the I-cords. The mitts are designed to be worn with 1"1½" of negative ease.
