The first section is a tutorial on lace knitting basics such as needles, yarns, charts, swatches, and blocking. The second section is on lace knitting techniques. This section includes information on casting on, joining yarns, binding off, and making increases. The last section of the book is on resources such as yarns, standard yarn weight systems, abbreviations, and symbols.
The patterns are varied and include sweaters, socks, shawls, cowls, scarves, hats, and mittens. My favorites are the Cranbourne Scarf which is labeled as appropriate for the 'adventuresome beginner'. It utilizes Madelinetosh Tosh Sock Yarn in a beautiful off-white colorway. I love the True Love Scarf or Stole knit in white that calls for Jojoland Cashmere. This is a project for an advanced knitter. The Tiffany Triangle Shawl is for intermediate knitters and calls for Dream in Color Baby Australian Superwash Yarn. The Vortex Sprial Shawl or Afghan is gasp-aloud beautiful. Designed for the 'adventuresome intermediate' it calls for Cascade 220 100% Peruvian Highland Wool in Pumpkin Spice colorway. The Esplanade Mittens for the 'adventuresome beginner' uses one skein of Color Smooshy Sock Yarn and looks easy enough for a true beginner's project. The Rhossili Beach Watch Cap is designed for beginner knitters and calls for Dream in Color Classy Superfine Australian Superwash Merino. I think this is a very doable project for a beginner who is familiar with hat knitting. I just love the Mairi Tam, a slouch hat for intermediate knitters utilizing Dream in Color Smooshy Sock Yarn.Read more ›
While you have the pdf in your phone just email it to a pc and print it out.
Cant be easier and saves you from buying a hard copy and ruining the binding trying to mash it on your home printer!
Potter Craft has done an amazing job again with the photography. This is a very professional and organized book that I am so happy I own.
