Vogue Knitting has released the latest volume in their popular Stitchionary series, Volume Five: Lace Knitting. This is the most comprehensive collection of lace patterns that I have seen - over 150 beautiful designs, many of which have been pulled from the Vogue Knitting archives.
Lace comes in all sorts of varities - from light and airy to chunky to intricate - making it a timelessly popular choice with knitters. With patterns ranging from the simplest of simple to quite baffling, gorgeous lace can be achieved by both novice and experienced knitters alike. Whether you are looking for a relaxing or challenging project, lace patterns provide many options.
Stitchionary Volume Five is organized into seven sections, arranged from the easiest to the most challenging: Easy/Mesh, Edgings, Chevrons, Allover, Panels, Combos and Motifs. Easy to follow written instructions, as well as charts are included for all of the patterns. Detailed swatch photos are also included for each pattern, allowing you to clearly see the designs.
An indispensable reference book for lace knitters, Stitchionary Volume Five is one to add to your bookshelf!
