Description

Not your grandmother’s doily!

Enjoy gorgeous projects that include hats, small and large shawls (circular, semi-circular, and triangular), scarves, and wraps—all inspired by traditional lace doily patterns. Lace-knitter Andrea Jurgrau shows how she creates her patterns, lifting or creating and adjusting individual motifs, then reworking and combining them into original, unique works of wearable art.

Take knitted doilies to another level! Intricate, delicate, and from the past, Andrea readily acknowledges that you might not have a use for such items. In her book New Vintage Lace, you’ll find a collection of 18 fully-charted projects that she has altered and adapted into fresh wearable accessories suited to more modern styles and tastes.

Andrea shows you many particulars of lace knitting—explaining special stitches, how to read both charts and your own knitting, different ways of adding beads, and the importance of proper blocking. New Vintage Lace will take you beyond the current trends and leave you wanting more.

Exciting Review by Glenda

I love this ebook, and I love all the projects inside. Having this book as a download has permitted me to move it into my knitting program so that I can read the charts and instructions from my ipad. It is great! The book is well written and the projects exciting.

Worth the wait Review by Vicki
Rating

I pre-ordered this in November-well worth the wait. My biggest problem is what to knit first. I have never bought a knitting book where I wanted to knit everything. I think this is as close as it gets. Now if they'd just put out a magazine for us lace/shawl knitters.

Really excited by this book but finding it rather tricky to follow the charts - can I get any additional help anywhere?

I bought this book as a digital download, and I love it. Not only does it offer some beautiful projects, but it gives an insight into Andrea's design process. I learned a lot from it.

Beautiful Lace Projects - Great Presentation Review by Sheila
Rating

Andrea Jurgrau is one of my favorite knit designers - and probably my favorite lace knit designer. I have been a member of many of her KAL groups and the designs are always remarkable and unique. The lace designs in this book are pure Andrea. They are well charted and, for me, easy to follow.

The book also contains, in my opinion, all the information you would need to get started with lace knitting. There are very clear, well written instructions, descriptions and illustrations for using charts, choosing materials and mastering techniques like cast on, beading and bind off. The book is perfect for both the experienced lace knitter as well as the novice.

And the book is gorgeous! Beautiful photography brings the projects to life and a clean layout presents all the material in a clear and flowing style.

I purchased the digital copy, so I could get it immediately. I love books, especially art books, but I really am enjoying the digital copy viewed on my large monitor. I can zoom in on details and print the instructions for projects I am working on, make notes on the prints and not have to worry about damaging the book.

You will not be disappointed.
