Oh but this is hard.
Anyway, could Darcy's be what they called en cascade (the myriad of twists & folds gave it a volumptuous cascading, ruffled look) or is that just his shirt? En cascade does not appear in Jenny's collection, though. I think I got it from the Regency companion.
Also, regarding the Osbaldeston, I have a fashion dictionary that says it was also called a barrel knot, meaning the two were one and the same.
I have my ideas about the others but I could hardly express them, they could be any one of these knots! Also, do you really think that the movie-makers went to the same trouble we are? I mean, perhaps these knots in the picture were a combination of a few of them.
