Loop-d-Loop LaceLoop-d-Loop Lace: More Than 30 Novel LAce Designs for Knitters

Written by Teva Durham

Provided by Abrams Books

Reviewed by Audrey Huggett

 

Lace is one of the fields of knitting that seems much more difficult and intimidating that it really is.  Loop-d-Loop Lace: More than 30 Novel Lace Designs for Knitters, written by Teva Durham, is full of accessible patterns for knitters with basic skills and up.  Even looking through this book is a real treat for knitters; you get an excellent idea of the possibilities of lace.

 

The book is divided by types of lace, not by skill level, which I actually think is a bonus.  Rather than telling readers what skills are needed, Durham leaves it up to the knitter to choose the project appropriate for his or her skill level.  I think this organization is a great way to encourage readers to challenge themselves when it comes to knitting lace, which is always a good thing.  Each section of the book features an introduction to the type of lace with a small gallery of the patterns, including a short write up about each pattern.  The full patterns then follow the introduction, so each chapter of the book is totally encapsulated.

 

Durham utilizes a variety of yarn weights in her patterns too, which I really appreciated.  Although we all love and admire the fine lace shawls knit with gossamer thin yarn, sometimes those projects are just too challenging to take on.  By providing her readers with a wide array of patterns and yarns to choose from, Durham ensures that this book is suitable for a wide audience.  Even those new to lace will find the patterns in this book inspiring and enchanting.
