Pemberley Slippers Knitting Pattern Download
Mr. Darcy's estate in Pride and Prejudice for which this slipper is named is well known for its lush woods and gardens. Therefore, the garter stitch-based lace that is worked simultaneously with the body of the slipper for minimal finishing has a leaf motif. Those familiar with intarsia knitting may wish to work the edging with a contrasting color.
