Lacy Knits: 20 Delicate Projects in Soft, Luxurious Mohair-Silk Yarns

Overview


Mohair-silk yarn, renowned for its delicate beauty, has a rapidly growing fanbase around the world. Knitting with it, say devotees, is "highly addictive," partly because its unique elements—the sheen of the silk structure and the haze of the mohair—effortlessly combine to bestow a touch of glamour upon every knitting pattern. Simplicity is the key when working with such yarn, as even the most basic of designs is given an air of complexity by the luster and texture of the mohair-silk. It is with this in mind that...

Overview


Mohair-silk yarn, renowned for its delicate beauty, has a rapidly growing fanbase around the world. Knitting with it, say devotees, is "highly addictive," partly because its unique elements—the sheen of the silk structure and the haze of the mohair—effortlessly combine to bestow a touch of glamour upon every knitting pattern. Simplicity is the key when working with such yarn, as even the most basic of designs is given an air of complexity by the luster and texture of the mohair-silk. It is with this in mind that Alison Crowther-Smith, author of the popular book Silky Little Knits, explores new ways of using embellishments and shade work to show this superfine yarn to its best advantage—this time in a sparkling collection of over 20 lace accessories for you and your home.

You'll find step-by-step instructions for both traditional and modern lace patterns—something to suit every knitting palate: from simple lace ribbing, to bold circular lace designs; from lace with beads, sequins, and embroidery, to ideas for fabric backing and color-blending. One-of-a-kind projects include delicate scarves, cozy mittens, shimmering shrugs, glittering bags, and pillows with lattice and floral motifs. Designs vary from easy to more difficult, but all are extremely accessible, regardless of your level of expertise, and were chosen to be quick-to-knit with modern, busy lifestyles in mind. With a special introduction to the ins-and-outs of working with mohair (including the tricks to casting on, matching gauge and tension, finishing, and binding off) and full color photos and illustrations, beginning knitters will have just as much fun creating these projects as the more advanced crafters who may have worked with lace and mohair-silk before. Most importantly, Crowther-Smith's patterns yield the most rewarding results you can imagine: knitwear brimming with delicacy, style, and timeless charm.

Editorial Reviews

From the Publisher

"The author has done an excellent job of including patterns for every skill level. If you are a fan of lace knitting, you will have a hard time deciding which of the 20 beautiful projects to cast on first." —Love of Knitting (September 2011)

"Math check: Twenty accessories and home accents that sport a halo, courtesy of Rowan's 'Kidsilk Haze' fiber family. Two patterns in particular upend mohair expectations—a chunky cowl knit on big circs and a pillow cover that places an overlay of cornflower-blue 'Kidsilk' diamonds atop a white milk-cotton fabric." —knitsimple magazine (October 2011)

Library Journal
Crowther-Smith, a former design consultant with Rowan Yarns, presents a collection of "gently challenging" lace projects knit in Rowan's silk/mohair blend yarns. True to the Rowan aesthetic, the projects, which range from wraps, shawls, and scarves to pillow covers and accessories, have a romantic look. The fuzzy halo of mohair yarn makes even the simplest pieces look complex and upscale. Knitters looking for patterns suitable for bridal or formal wear will likely find something appealing here, and other yarns of similar weight can be substituted for the mohair if desired.
