Lovely Knitted Lace
A Geometric Approach to Gorgeous WearablesBook - 2014
Lace knitting gets a makeover in 'Lovely Knitted Lace'! Author Brooke Nico offers up 16 garments and accessories based on four basic shapes: triangles, circles, squares, and rectangles. Start with these simple shapes, then create a light-as-air Angle Shawl knit from the center out; a luxuriously soft Japanese Leaf Scarf that looks pretty on both sides of the fabric thanks to stockinette and twisted rib stitches; a pretty Aster Shirt with great drape and flow; and an ethereal Flutter Shawl featuring an Estonian variation of a leaf motif. Brooke also shares her thought on yarn, gauge, charts, techniques, and fixing mistakes in lace knitting, and includes six additional motifs for you to play with and explore.
