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.

This is a lovely collection of lace designed garment and accessories. Definitely not a one hit wonder. Multiple photos show various views and details of the garments. Well written and presented. Check out the other books in series.
