Overview

Open, peek-a-boo stitches are all the rage with knitters and fashionistas. So isn’t it great to know that you can achieve that lovely lacy look without all the complicated patterns? Bestselling author Iris Schreier reveals her clever tricks for using simple, accessible techniques to mimic lace beautifully. Each of these 25 garments features gorgeous lightweight yarns, and their sensuous cling and drape evoke an aura of romance and sexiness. Wrap yourself in a luxurious pretty-in-pink Turkish Shawl. Play the role of a retro starlet in the Seashell Hat in ultra-soft green cashmere. Beat the heat in style with an eye-catching turquoise Chevron Halter. There’s even a show-stopping bridal outfit! Schreier carefully covers all the basics, from an overview of key stitches to picking up stitches in fabric, from creating short rows to adding trim, tassels, and cords.

Editorial Reviews

Library Journal

This columnist must confess to being a pushover for Schreier's pattern books (e.g., Modular Knits) because not only do they feature eye-catching knitwear designs, but they also teach new techniques using exercises and practice pieces. In her latest, Schreier presents some 25 patterns in order of difficulty, from a simple lace shrug to a flattering-for-any-figure modular lace sweater knitted entirely on angles. The collection emphasizes soft, feminine, openwork garments that drape beautifully and feature lightweight luxury yarns like silk and mohair blends. The author's goal is to teach lace knitters to "read her lace," i.e., to understand the logical progression of a lace pattern so well that they can eventually knit it without instruction. Should be popular in large public libraries.
