C'est vrai que certains modèles pourraient parfois paraître un peu désuets mais je recherchais avant tout un livre qui revenait sur les traditions et là, bingo, je suis très heureuse de mon choix.
En prime, pour les initiées, quelques modèles de la célèbre et astucieuse Elizabeth Zimmermann.

Quelle déception à la lecture de ce livre. Pas très modernes les modèles proposés.
Heureusement, il y en a quelques uns de sympathiques mais la majorité ne datent pas d'hier.

HASH(0x93dc0a08) étoiles sur 5 Yes! Beauty, artistry, and challeging designs! 30 novembre 2003
Par abt1950 - Publié sur
Format: Broché
This book is great! All these wonderful patterns from old issues of Knitters magazine have been reprinted together in a more durable format. My copies of the original magazines are dog-eared and not always easy to find, so this book has a definite place on my knitting bookshelf.
If you're new to knitting shawls, this book is a great introduction. The patterns represent a wide variety of traditional and more modern styles. As with most pieces from Knitters, the designs are sophisticated and often challenging. Techniques are well-explained and will give you the background needed to move beyond pre-fab patterns to design your own.
However, this doesn't mean that the book is only for expert knitters. I'm an intermediate knitter, but I made my first Faroese shawl from a pattern included here. It was a technical stretch at first, but not undoable. The result was one of the best, most wearable, and most satisfying pieces of knitting I've done. I'm now starting my second shawl.
This is not a book to buy if you want a mindless project in stockinette. But if you want something that will expand your knitting horizons and give you something to wear on chilly winter nights, then this book is a great choice.

(Oh--and did I mention that shawls tend to be forgiving if your gauge is a little off? That's always a plus in my book.)

HASH(0x93dc0a5c) étoiles sur 5 One of my favorites 3 février 2004
Par A. Reader - Publié sur
Format: Broché
I originally checked this book out from the local library and found that I would have to own my own copy. There are a few patterns that would be suitable for beginners, but I would definitely pay attention to the skill level rating on each pattern. My only complaint would be that the terms "laceweight" and "fingering" seem to have been used without discretion. While lace knitting is generally very forgiving in terms of gauge, it is frustrating to know that the "laceweight" yarn you purchased is not even close to the "laceweight" yarn that was used in the pattern. Patterns are included for round, triangular, faroese, shetland, and rectangular shawls. The patterns include both written instructions as well as charts to accommodate any preference. Color pictures are provided for each pattern, as well as each variation of pattern. Yarns range from mohair to cotton, and from sport weight to laceweight. A 4-page "Knitter's School" in the back of the book provides instructions for standard techniques, as well as some more advanced techniques specific to circular knitting.

HASH(0x93dc0e94) étoiles sur 5 An eagerly-awaited book!!! 27 juillet 1999
Par Un client - Publié sur
Format: Broché Achat vérifié
This book contains patterns for shawls and scarves from previous issues of Knitter's magazine. With so many issues of Knitter's magazine out of print, and selling for fantastic prices (one issue sold for almost $50 on Ebay) this is a most welcome book. If you like shawls and knitting you will enjoy this book.

HASH(0x93dc0eb8) étoiles sur 5 Get Ready to Pull Out Those Stitch Dictionaries! 2 mai 2006
Par knitting librarian - Publié sur
Format: Broché
As expected, this book includes lots of traditional and innovative shawl patterns, however its true value is that it is an instruction book for designing your own shawls.

Shawl construction is solidly covered (e.g. the many ways of creating a traditional Shetland shawl, which consists of a square centre, lace border, and lacy edging), and explicit suggestions are given for how to design your own (e.g. the designer suggests using patterns with repeats of 15 or 14 plus 1). This is where things get interesting. You'll need to pull out your stitch dictionaries, pencil and graph paper, because after you read this book, the urge to design your own shawls will be irresistable!

A side note: if you've bought one of the later reprints, you don't have to worry about errata. If you have a copy from the original run in 1999, the errata can be found at the Knitting Universe web site.

HASH(0x93bc8360) étoiles sur 5 the itch to stitch 18 janvier 2000
Par Seven Kitties - Publié sur
Format: Broché
This is the book that got me into lace knitting. ALbeit i am a fairly experienced knitter, but i found nothing about this book too terribly frightening. what difficulties of design that there are, such as in the 'seamless' construction of the true Shetland shawl, are explained clearly, and the "knitter's school" at the back covers every technique that might be new to a less experienced knitter. While i am not a big fan of charts for lace knitting (i am not a visual person)it's easy enough to read the chart once, and write ona slip of paper the pattern for that row. It helps you keep it in your head better as you knit, i think, and for purposes of space and efficiency, i certainly can't fault Knitters for using charts--otherwise the book would be bulky and prohibitively expensive. THey cover shetland shawls, faroese shawls, and round shawls in clear chapters, covering design basics as well as giving a sampling of yummy patterns. one warning though, if you buy this book you WILL end up absolutely NEEDING to acquire more 'lace stitch library' books so you can design your own shawls!
