This easy-to-follow lace knitting guide transforms the complete beginner into an accomplished expert.
With step-by-step instructions and a preliminary section explaining all the essentials—yarn, needles, gauge, techniques, and how to read knitting charts—this guide could not be more accessible. All swatches are clearly photographed and each stitch pattern appears in both written and chart form, so even novices can start right away.
Hone your skills with stylish projects, including delicately-trimmed linen, silk pillow covers, elegant stoles, and heirloom baby blankets. And with each stitch pattern illustrated in both fine and thicker yarns, you can create a truly individual garment. So whether you covet a vintage look or desire a more contemporary feel, The Very Easy Guide to Lace Knitting will give you the skills—and the inspiration.
