Beginner's Guide to Lace Knitting

Gifted By: Leisure Arts

Review By: Katelin Burke, Editor for AllFreeKnitting


If you've ever wanted to incorporate the dainty look of lace into your knitting, this booklet is a great place to start. Beginner's Guide to Lace Knitting is more than just a pattern book; it's a wonderfully thorough manual that starts beginning lace knitters off on the right foot by answering all the questions they didn't even know to ask about lace knitting. What lace is, how it's made, how to start and finish it—it's all in there. It even contains an extensive guide on how to read and use charts, a necessary skill that beginners often find difficult master.


The fourteen patterns in this book range from chunky scarves to delicate doilies, giving aspiring lace knitters a clear path along which to move and grow. A series of knit scarf patterns add elegance to the knitter's everyday wardrobe, while a hat and an afghan debunk the myth that all lace knitting is arduous and minutely detailed. A set of edging patterns allows knitters to show off their new skills at the borders of simpler projects, and a showstopping heirloom-style doily pattern gives the reader an idea of what can be accomplished with time and patience.


This instructive and inspiring booklet contains patterns for all levels, though its focus on the fundamentals of lace knitting make it best suited for advanced beginner knitters. You'll want to hang onto Beginner's Guide to Lace Knitting for years to come, both to reference its clear explanations and to knit and re-knit its beautiful patterns.
