Lace Style: Traditional to Innovative, 21 Inspired Designs to Knit
Pam Allen, Ann Budd
From runways to department stores, lace is everywhere and knitters are picking up their needles to chase the trend. The gorgeous Lace Style eBook takes a fresh approach to a classic theme by combining solid techniques with 20+ contemporary, lace projects.
Following the success of Scarf Style and Wrap Style—with more than 100,000 copies sold - we've selected a stunning collection of quick knits that take a modern twist on a traditional pattern. Accomplished designers including Veronik Avery, Norah Gaughan, Annie Modesitt, Shirley Paden and Michele Rose Orne will inspire with patterns ranging from scarves, shawls, hats, sweaters, dresses, and more.
Revel in ways to use lace as all-over patterns, trims and edgings, and inserts. Innovative designs include a lace pattern typically used for baby wear boldly translated into a striking woman's scalloped jacket, a delicate lace edging used to accent a featherlight lingerie dress, a chic skirt made lacy with intentionally dropped stitches, a wide-brim garden hat with a decidedly vintage feel, a sophisticated bracelet knitted from fine silver wire, and much more.
Each pattern has detailed step-by-step instructions and lavish lifestyle photographs with plenty of detail shots to keep readers inspired. A special design chapter demystifies the elements of knitted lace, and details several ways to achieve lacy effects. It also provides key pointers on how to incorporate lace motifs into other patterns and tips to ensure success.
Whether you're an experienced knitter looking for inspiration or a beginner trying lace knitting for the first time, the Lace Style eBook has everything you need to knit lace with confidence and convenience.
