Jane Austen inspired cowl and mittens by KnitLizzy Jane Austen inspired cowl and mittens by KnitLizzy
EDIT 30.03.13: OMG! My very first DD! I've been on deviantART for 7 years and now I get my first DD! I'm so happy! =D I can't believe this! Thank you so much! =Brookette Thank you for suggesting this, it means so much to me :heart:

My entry for :iconknitting-and-crochet:'s february contest. Jane Austen! Also the first price winner! Thank you guys! =D

I really didn't know what do do for this contest... I really wanted to enter, but I had no idea what to make! Everybody wanted to make lace shawls and so on for it, but I kinda wanted to do something different. After some time, I found the cowl you see here. I found four skeins of an old yarn that I got from my mother, and it was in this old/dust pink-ish color and 100% new wool. It was perfect! The cowl was finished quite fast and with the help from *Chidi-Chic I found a flower I could knit and put on it (the pattern had a crochet flower).

I was going to do a simple, thick looking, winter-ish shawl to go with it, but after screwing it up 4-5 times, and actually getting pretty far...I figured out that I didn't have enough yarn for it. So I ended up scrapping the whole thing!

Then, with alot of help from people from #Crafting-On-Camera and also other people outside of the chat, I ended up making these fingerless mittens. So I get to use the yarn I was going to use for the shawl on these, along with some of the leftovers from the cowl.

Cowl pattern can be found here: [link]
Mittens pattern can be found here: [link]

I love the jacket you wore with it. It really ties it all together, all of those shades of purple.

This is a lovely take on Jane Austen. I think you have a nicely unique take on the time period's clothes while combining it with modern usability. Nice
