Knitted lace is beautiful, ethereal and eminently achievable by any competent knitter. Written by a passionate lace knitter, this comprehensive book contains a brief history of lace knitting and considers the similarities between the genre from different traditions. There is information on techniques, with over seventy lace motifs and embellishments including making bobbles, beading and how to create the Estonian Nupp. Whilst using traditional motifs, Lace Knitting moves away from the traditional square shawls of the past and focuses on wedding wraps, scarves and throws. It includes seven straightforward, but effective projects, all of which can be varied and made more or less complex by the knitter.

This book is beautifully illustrated and includes:

  • A brief history of lace knitting
  • Information about yarns, tools and techniques
  • A fully illustrated stitchionary, with charts and written instructions
  • How to use your own ideas to plan and execute a unique piece of lace
  • How to read lace charts
  • How to finish and care for your lace
