The Art of Knitted Lace is the perfect primer for everything you need to know about knitting lace every day—whether you're a beginner, intermediate, or advanced knitter. In her introduction, designer Kristin Omdahl leads you through knitted lace basics, including tool tips, chart reading guidelines, terminology, and, of course, knitting instructions.
With the 35-plus projects that follow, you'll learn to make a wide variety of useful, beautiful garments, designed by our best-loved authors and knitters. Put some romance back into your life with the Casablanca Silk Stockings. In more of a fashion-forward mood? Try the Hamptons Dress or Lacy Cap-Sleeve Bolero. If you need more lace in your everyday life, try your hand at the Raspberry Rhapsody Scarf or the Little Shells Socks. Whatever the season, whatever the reason—make it in lace!
Featuring projects and designs from Lisa Lloyd, Annie Modesitt, Phoenix Bess, Berta Karapetyan, Melissa Matthay, and others, this timeless collection of designs will have you coming back again and again. Isn't everything better with a little touch of lace?
