Creating Original Hand-knitted Lace

Cover of Creating Hand-knitted LaceStill unique in it’s class – Creating Original Hand-knitted Lace starts with giving knitters an understanding of the history of lace in knitting and explores the structure of how lace stitches are made. It takes the creation of lace a step further by demonstrating and encouraging knitters to explore creating new lace patterns rather than just relying on stitch dictionaries and historic examples.

Written well before Ravelry and the internet the challenge this book offers – to follow in the pathway of the generations of knitters inspired by their environments to create new patterns – is still rarely met.
