Biscotte Yarns loved the Bennet Sister Shawl by Lindsey Fowler so much that they created knitting kits especially for this original pattern!
This shawl is a long triangle shaped shawl written from end to end and uses simple stitches to create graphic shapes and dynamic lines. The finished shawl at gauge is approximately 70” long with a 27” depth, perfect for wrapping around your neck like a cowl or over your shoulders.
“Do not make yourself uneasy, my love. Wherever you and Jane are known you must be respected and valued; and you will not appear to less advantage for having a couple of—or I may say, three—very silly sisters.”
“This shawl was, of course, inspired by one of my favorite sets of literary sisters. I didn’t grow up with sisters, but I like to imagine if I had, they would be like the Bennets. We would squabble and tease, but when the going gets tough, we would ride or die with each other. When designing a shawl for the modern Bennet sister, I created something that was practical but included a little bit of luxury for Lydia and Kitty.
This shawl is perfect for wrapping around your shoulders on long morning walks through dewy meadows, or covering up when Lady Cathrine de Bourgh barges in late at night to call you out.“ - Lindsey Fowler
