eBooks available as Ravelry Downloads
Lattice, shell, spider, and trellis are Icelandic lace stitches that were combined to create both new and traditional shapes for the seven designs in this ebook. The five shawls are knit from the top down and offer an opportunity to play with color. They end with dramatic edgings that are surprisingly easy to knit. The simplicity of the bottom-up scarf ensures it will be a grab-and-go favorite, as well as the perfect social knitting project. The two versions of the wrist warmers can be knit as fraternal twins since both begin with scallops and end with picots. These designs look great in a variety of yarns, and patterns include both written instructions and charts.
The Second Edition: This book originally was written to help knitters design their own triangular scarf or shawl using four lace patterns—Flower, Leaf, Medallion, and Ripple—and a scalloped Arch Edging. In this edition, two lace motifs—Foliage and Pod—and three edgings—Foliage, Trellis, and Garter Eyelet—have been added. Instructions and charts are included for knitting these motifs as an overall lace or as an insert, as well as for combining them with solid sections of stockinette or garter stitch. Nine new samples also are shown, including a square.
