$13.79 40% off
If you have ever thought that knitting lace involved too much counting, was too complicated or required learning complex stitches - The Very Easy Guide to Lace Knitting is all you need to change your mind. This book guides you through the entire process of knitting lace from the very basics through finishing techniques that give your lace projects a neat, finished look. Beginning with the basics, this resource book goes over fiber types, tools, knitting basics, gauge and how to read charts. The book includes a total of twenty-three lessons which are divided into four sections: eyelet patterns, lace panels, lace patterns and lace edgings. Each sections include step-by-step photography to break down the instructions into easy-to-follow parts and include close-ups of tricky stitches and essential steps. Additionally, this book also works wonders as an inspirational stitch dictionary - each stitch pattern includes written and charted instructions, as well as a large knitted swatch and an additional swatch that shows a variation on the original. Some of these variations include combining the stitch pattern with one another, enlarging the stitch pattern, repeating the stitch pattern and some even show the same stitch pattern knitted up in a very different yarn. This amazing collection of stitch patterns combines with a wealth of knowledge that will turn any beginning lace knitter into an expert! And if you need any more inspiration, this book also includes 13 patterns for home decor, accessories, blankets, sweaters and more.
