Lace Style : Traditional to Innovative, 21 Inspired Designs to Knit Paperback
From runways to department stores, lace is everywhere and knitters are picking up their needles to chase the trend.
Lace Style takes a fresh approach to this classic theme by combining solid techniques with 20+ contemporary projects. Following the success of Scarf Style and Wrap Style - with more than 100,000 copies sold - we've selected a stunning collection of quick knits that take a modern twist on a traditional pattern.
Accomplished designers including Veronik Avery, Norah Gaughan, Annie Modesitt, Shirley Paden and Michele Rose Orne will inspire with patterns ranging from scarves, shawls, hats, sweaters, dresses, and more. Revel in ways to use lace as allover patterns, trims and edgings, and inserts.
Innovative designs include a lace pattern typically used for baby wear boldly translated into a striking woman's scalloped jacket, a delicate lace edging used to accent a featherlight lingerie dress, a chic skirt made lacy with intentionally dropped stitches, a wide-brim garden hat with a decidedly vintage feel, a sophisticated bracelet knitted from fine silver wire, and much more. Each pattern has detailed step-by-step instructions and lavish lifestyle photographs with plenty of detail shots to keep readers inspired.
A special design chapter demystifies the elements of knitted lace, and details several ways to achieve lacy effects.
It also provides key pointers on how to incorporate lace motifs into other patterns and tips to ensure success. Whether you're an experienced knitter looking for inspiration or a beginner trying lace knitting for the first time, Lace Style has everything you need to knit lace with confidence.

Love, Love, LOVE!!! It is hard to decide what to do first. I think the cover jacket is it though, feather and fan is my favorite pattern ever.

Review by dmrauch
Thoroughly enjoyed the items I knit from this book and I have several more planned. I don't do lace, and was sure I didn't want this book and would never knit from it. I bought it to make the Katherine Hepburn cardigan as a gift. It turns out I really like many of the patterns, and have put items from this book on my to-do list.The book has 21 patterns and only 3 pages with errata, but the sizing seems to run small and tight.
