The pattern was inspired by the Victorian Regard ring where the word regard is spelled out as an acrostic in jewels - ruby, emerald, garnet, amethyst, ruby and diamond. A Regard ring would be given to a sweetheart to show that she was held in high esteem. The design starts with a lacy cuff, then a slipstitch pattern for the jewels. Around the toe is a little bit of colourwork to represent the scrolled gold of an old Regard ring. BASIC SKILLS NECESSARY You should be able to work in the round and to follow written directions and a simple colourwork chart.
