Knitting Lace
  This item has not been reviewed yet

Before knitting patterns and charts were published, knitters would create samplers to keep records of different stitch patterns and to show off their skills. Susanna E. Lewis encountered a 19th century lace sampler while volunteering in the Department of Costumes andTextiles at the Brooklyn Museum in Brooklyn, New York, and painstakingly recorded every stitch from this sampler into 92 charts and written directions that you could follow or incorporate into your knitting today.

Susanna also provides essential information to understand how lace works. She has a knitted chart of eyelets paired with different decreases, to illustrate shaping a shawl or a lace motif. There is also excellent information about understanding lace charts. After reading this book, you will be able to read a lace chart, chart any lace pattern that you imagine, and read an existing piece of knitting and chart those stitches.
