The inspiration for the Victoria Neckwarmer design was from stitch patterns prevalent in the Weldon's Series, published in 19th-century Victorian England. The lacy scalloped border was featured in "Weldon's Practical Knitter, Fifteenth Series", on a petticoat for a young child.
The diagonal patterning in the original petticoat was a knit/purl pattern. In the neckwarmer the diagonal pattern has been revised to a lace stitch pattern to co-ordinate with the lacy scalloped border.
A few rows of purl are worked to create a scallop fold along the top of the lacy collar, which is both decorative and feminine!

Fell in love with knitting as a young lass, and decades later... there is still so much more to learn, from fancy lace stitches to interesting Japanese knitting techniques. I am particularly smitten with traditional lace, texture and colourwork stitches from different cultures, and incorporate those inspirations into my patterns.
