With an emphasis on innovative designs that range from simple to complex, this collection of contemporary knitting projects includes garments and accessories for women. Featuring projects with a sense of style that will appeal to knitters of all ages, it includes designs for socks, hats, sweaters, dresses, and shrugs. A basic primer on knitting lace that is closely linked to the projects in the book includes information on how to knit lace, choosing yarn and needles, types of increases and decreases, reading charts, simple ways to achieve a lacy effect, ways to incorporate lace designs in knitting patterns, and information on blocking. Each pattern has detailed step-by-step instructions, lavish lifestyle photographs, and plenty of detail shots. Experienced knitters looking for inspiration and beginners trying lace knitting for the first time will find everything needed to knit lace with confidence.
Lace knitting, with its elaborate patterning of solid fabric punctuated at regular intervals with decorative holes, is the caviar of knitting techniques. Interweave Knits editors Allen and Budd present a varied selection of 21 designs from such leading knitwear designers as Norah Gaughan, Annie Modesitt, and Priscilla Gibson-Roberts. These projects will appeal primarily to lace knitters with intermediate to advanced skills. They include a lacy ruffled skirt; a striking, full-length lace dress and stole; and jewelry knitted with fine-gauge wire and Swarovski crystal beads. A design notebook illustrating all the techniques, ideas for adding lace to your own designs, and hints for fixing common mistakes make this a valuable collection for knitters wishing to take their lace knitting to a higher level. Enthusiastically recommended, especially for large public libraries.
