Designer Margaret Stove is best known as a spinner and creator of Artisan Lace Wool yarn, but among lace aficionados, Stove’s designs are the pinnacle of the craft. With Wrapped in Lace, Stove shares her story as a lifelong student of knitted lace, including designing patterns, spinning lace yarns, and identifying the characteristics of lace traditions from around the world.

Wrapped in Lace highlights a significant part of Stove’s personal knitting journey: working with the legendary “wedding ring shawl,” a larger knitted lace shawl so fine and delicate that it can be drawn through a wedding ring.

Framed by an engaging narrative of learning to create knitted lace from scratch, Wrapped in Lace describes each set of lace techniques, patterns, and traditions in depth, then gives an original pattern for a lace shawl, stole, or scarf. The twelve original projects are characteristic of knitted lace form the Faroe Islands, Shetland Islands, Orenburg, Estonia, and lace motifs of New Zealand, as well as more contemporary European work. An expert on lace repair and conservation, Stove also teaches how to preserve, restore, or even remake knitted lace heirlooms.
