Brocade Vestment knitting pattern by Vicki Square

The Brocade Vestment by Vicki Square is beautifully accented with twinkling beads.

Downton Abbey’s legendary run is over—sniff!—so it seems like a perfect time to take a look at some of the of our favorite knitting patterns from our two special issues of The Unofficial Downton Abbey Knits. The projects in The Best of Downton Abbey Pattern Collection channel the world of the Granthams; there are fancy, delicate items, in robust colors for lavish evening soirees, as well as more everyday-out-and-about wear.

The beautiful Garden Bouquet Shawl by Kyoko Nakayoshi

The Garden Bouquet Shawl by Kyoko Nakayoshi is made of lace inspired by roses and trailing clematis.

There are eight patterns here, all of which have design elements in keeping with the era of the show. All of the garments and accessories in Downton Abbey feature impeccable tailoring and fit, which carry through in this collection. While clothes were more modest than much of what we see today, there was still acknowledgement of the female form and attempts were made to flatter it without exploiting it.

Traveling Coat by Vicki Square

Vicki Square’s Traveling Coat has delicate lines and beautiful texture details.

The world of Downton Abbey is rich and luxurious and has been a place many of us have gotten lost in for several years now. Just because the show has ended doesn’t mean our love of this world can’t live on through some pretty amazing knitwear. The patterns are delicate and feminine while also being functional and wearable, and will add beauty to your everyday life. Get this collection today, and enjoy knitting patterns to remind you of your time in the world of Downton!
