Shetland lace

See also

"The magic of Shetland Lace Knitting" by Elizabeth Lovick is all about stitches, techniques and projects for lighter-than-air shawls and more. Shetland lace might conjur up thoughts of the 'wedding ring shawl' also known as the Unst shawl. Those are shawls sized 6' by 6' where the yarn is so fine, when complete can pass through a wedding ring.

Want to try lace knitting? The book contains all the techniques to master Shetland lace through line drawings, designing your own shawls using charts, browsing through the lace stitch dictionary and learning the history of this art. You will learn to use a lifeline and fix your mistakes. Then, put all your knowledge to use with seven projects from mitts and socks to shawls and more.

The photographs of the different lace stitches are eye candy. What do you start knitting first? Lace is all about the YO (yarn over) and K2 (knitting two together). Lace shawls and scarves are very popular right now and oh so feminine. The choices are endless for designing your own shawl from the overall shape of squares, triangles or circles to the numerous stitch patterns.

This is a comprehensive guide book and perfect for the first timer to lace. The stitch dictionary is extensive and even the experienced lace knitter will enjoy it. Enjoy two free lace pattern scarves from Elizabeth Lovick.
