Présentation de l'éditeur

Stitches, techniques, and projects for lighter-than-air shawls and more. The ethereal beauty and intricacy of Shetland lace knitting might at first seem beyond the powers of the everyday knitter, but the skills needed are within the reach of everyone who can knit and purl, cast on, and bind off. The Magic of Shetland Lace is designed to take the novice knitter from their first "yarn over" step-by-step to complex every-row lace knitting. Organised by stitch and row count, the techniques are introduced with clear step-by-step instructions, charts, and detailed photographs of knitted samples. The book presents all the essential skills you will need to master a wealth of traditional Shetland motifs, patterns, and insertions, including Cat's Paw, Candlelight, Horse Shoe, and many more. Includes suggestions for how to work different stitches into elegant and traditional Shetland Lace accessories such as scarves, hats, and shawls. --Ce texte fait référence à l'édition Broché .

5.0 étoiles sur 5 Glad I purchased 14 janvier 2014

I debated for a good while whether or not to buy this book. I have over a dozen stitch dictionaries, and thought the stitches in here were probably covered in the books I already own. There are a few, however, I don't think I have seen before. Aside from that, there is a wealth of information in this book that makes it worth every penny, even if you are familiar with the stitch patterns.

There is information on different types of yarn, their pros/cons and items made from that yarn are best suited for. There is a chart with yarn weights and the recommended needle sizes and what items to use those combinations for (for example, worsted/dk yanr on sizes 10-11 needles is good for baby blankets, pillow covers, etc.).

Of course the book also covers basic stitches and materials for knitting. There is also information on edges and seams, working from charts, attaching a lace border, fixing mistakes, blocking, designing, and putting motifs together. Instructions for the stitch patterns are both written and charted - and the charts are larger than you will find in many other books.

The projects in the book are a cobweb shawl, hat and scarf set, shoulder shawl, baby set, fingerless mitts, socks, and a crescent shawl. Some may be disappointed at the small number of patterns, but for me I don't mind. I actually prefer books full of techniques, rather than patterns, because I like to take the techniques from books and design my own items.

I am glad I bought this book, and would recommend it to anyone who is looking for a lace book for their library.

4.0 étoiles sur 5 For the Intermediate and Experienced Lace Knitter 30 octobre 2013
Par Fairbanks Reader - Bonnie Brody - Publié sur
Format: Broché Achat vérifié
This is a book for the intermediate or experienced lace knitter. It is primarily a book of techniques and stitch patterns with some projects at the end. The projects are lovely but require a great deal of experience with lace knitting.

The beginning of the book is 'Essential Techniques': Tools and Equipment, Yarn, The Basics, How to Read a Chart, Edges and Seams, Picking Up stitches, Dealing with Mistakes, Dressing Lace, Designing Shetland Lace, and Putting Motifs Together. As is obvious from the titles of the sections, this part of the book focuses on design as well as practical information for the lace knitter. It is not a 'how-to' book of lace knitting. Rather, it assumes that the reader already has quite a bit of experience knitting lace.

The second part of the book is a Stitch Directory which is about 70 pages long. It contains a myriad of different lace stitches and borders as well as steeks. Not all of the stitches are complicated but they do require a knowledge of lace knitting.

Some of the projects are lovely. The cobweb shawl is a project for a master lace knitter but would make anyone proud if they were to knit this pattern. The Hat and Scarf Set is much easier than the shawl but is nothing spectacular. Personally, I would not choose to knit it. The Baby Set is lovely and the pattern offers alternative lace stitches that can be incorporated into the project rather than the one that is demonstrated. This would take a bit of knowledge and math skills. The Crescent Shawl is beautiful but this too requires that one be an experienced lace knitter.

I was disappointed that there were not more projects in the book but am happy that there are so many motifs. I have knit lace before and consider myself an high intermediate knitter. However, I would be very nervous about taking on one of these projects. I wish that more instruction had been included in this book.

5.0 étoiles sur 5 My New Favorite Stitch Dictionary 10 octobre 2014
Par wibekah - Publié sur

I love this book. I checked it out from my library and ordered before I finished looking through it. It is more of a stitch encyclopedia than a project pattern book (similar to but considerably smaller than Barbara Walker's Treasuries) but the pictures are clear and in color and the and the selection of stitch patterns is outstanding. When discussing lace, there is always confusion surrounding the words 'stitch' and 'pattern' because 'pattern' can apply to the stitches that make up the lace or 'pattern' can apply to a set of instructions that will allow the knitter to construct a garment or knitted accessory. In this review, I will refer to 'stitch patterns' and 'project patterns' respectively.

This book is divided into three sections: Techniques, Stitch Directory, and Projects. There are only seven projects but each one offers several suggestions for altering the project pattern to the knitter's taste. The techniques section is small but comprehensive . The Stitch Directory is the heart of the book

As a general rule, Shetland knitting is made up of three parts: the center, the border, and the edging (what Lovick refers to as 'the lace' in her book, I would call edging). Remember that these designs were used by women who were knitting as a way of earning money so the center (generally the bulk of the item) was often knit in a simple all-over pattern or even plain garter stitch. A more ornate border framed the simpler center and then and edging (which was often sewn on) finished the piece. Edgings were typically scalloped which allows for easier blocking or 'dressing' as it is referred to in the book.

The stitches are divided into 4 categories: all-over, insertions, 'lace (i.e. edging) and motifs. The pictures are clear and of good size. There are charted instructions for each stitch pattern and written instructions for many. Those that don't include written instructions often include elements that have written instructions elsewhere. Lovick goes over the technique of knitting on edgings 'sideways' ala Elizabeth Zimmerman and her edging patterns are beautiful. I do think a novice knitter might find this book, particularly knitting 'sideways' a challenge to follow at first.

This is a much smaller book than any of Barbara Walkers volumes with 144 pages total but each stitch pattern has been chosen with care and the size and use of color in the photos makes it so much easier to really see how the pattern will look. I highly recommend this book.

I hesitated on buying this book for a long time.The cost of international postage cost makes me think twice or three times. Digital editions are more cost effective for international readers.
At first glance, it was all I'd hoped for. A little history, many technique tips, some patterns to try my new skills. The Stitch Selector followed by enlarged photos is amazing.

Then I looked closer. The font used appears to be about 6 points and either very light or grey. My glasses are within a year old and I have no trouble reading other books. Took the book to my craft group where my friends had similar problems. The lighting used for some of the photographs leaches the colour out of the yarn reducing stitch definition.

I emailed about my concerns hoping a later edition could correct these problems. The publisher advises me the extra pages required to use a slightly larger font are cost prohibitive. One of the photos I remarked on will be addressed .My astonishment at no digital edition was ignored.

Please note: My concerns are strictly with the printing. The little I've read using a Daylight Lamp and a magnifying glass indicate the content is great.

Had there been a digital edition available, I wouldn't have a worry. As it is, I have no intention of straining my eyes by trying to refer to a knitting book through a magnifying glass then back to my knitting, back to the magnifying glass etc. The book will remain on the shelf as a reminder to be careful about buying books I can't peruse in person or buy a digital copy which can be zoomed on a PC screen..

If you have perfect vision and plan on keeping it for the years of knitting ahead of you, go right ahead, I'm sure you'll love the book.

Pictures are nice and clear but no line numbers on charts. One chart is even upside down! Some written instructions for pattern stitches do not match charts so the user needs to fill in the blanks. Not for a novice. Construction technique for cobweb shawl is like none I have ever come across and difficult to follow. Really needed to be PROOFED! Yes, sometimes books have mistakes, but this just has too many and carelessly put together.
