Synopsis:

The spectacular knitted lace designs of New Zealand designer Margaret Stove are truly the pinnacle of the craft. In Wrapped in Lace, dive into Margarets love for learning and creating knitted lace, then begin your own journey to master lace knitting with 12 original patterns.

To appreciate the history of knitted lace, follow Margarets quest to design and knit the legendary “wedding ring shawl”—a large lace shawl so fine and delicate that it can be drawn through a wedding ring. Wrapped in Lace shares the art of designing patterns and the characteristics of lace traditions from around the world.

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 and offers Margarets spectacular patterns for lace shawls, stoles, and scarves. These projects illustrate knitted lace from the Faroe Islands, Shetland Islands, Orenburg, Estonia, and lace motifs of New Zealand, as well as more contemporary European work. As an added bonus, Wrapped in Lace includes Margarets tips for preserving, restoring, and remaking knitted lace heirlooms.

About the Author

Margaret Stove is a leading expert of handknitted superfine lace. Examples of her work are found in many galleries and private collections throughout the world. A passion for knitting and later designing lace led Stove to explore techniques for spinning lace yarns. She teaches lace knitting and spinning for lace internationally, and her line of New Zealand Merino lace yarn and patterns is distributed in the United States and throughout the world.
