Grandma's Fan Dishcloth
Grandma’s Fan turns a classic doily shape into a sweet kitchen staple. Designer Judy Becker was inspired by antique lace medallions she inherited from her grandma and great aunts, many of which featured flowers and fans. While those were made with a variety of methods—crochet, tatting, bobbin lace—this swirling cousin, which borrows from those motifs, is all knitted.
About the book…..
When most people think of their grandmother’s knitting, they might not immediately see the connection to a modern knitter’s life. But in My Grandmother’s Knitting, Larissa Brown shows us that nothing could be further from the truth.
Many of today’s hippest and most popular knitters found their passion for knitting under the tutelage of their grandmother or another revered family member, and in this book, they share stories and patterns inspired by their memories and their gratitude.
