Product description

From the Back Cover

Even the average knitter can now begin to knit in modern lace patterns—"Celandine," "Mosaic," "Rose Leaf," "Candlelight," "Coronet," "Valentine," "Azalea," "Primula," "Sun Ray," "English Crystal," "Springtime," "Three of Hearts"—all by well-known modern lace designer Marianne Kinzel. What is especially attractive about Mrs. Kinzel's approach is not only her fine knitted lace designs but also the comparatively short time and low cost involved in accomplishing each project.
Marianne Kinzel, well known to knitters in the United Kingdom and the United States, has long been looked to for her gift for clear presentation and even more so for her ability in devising original designs. She begins with a chapter on the fundamentals of lace knitting, covering everything the average knitter needs to know to begin working in lace. Other chapters give detailed instructions for projects in two-needle, round, and square techniques. Over 25 distinctive lace projects are presented, including luncheon sets, tray and table cloths, curtains, cushion covers, chair backs, and doilies. Instructions are presented both in the traditional written method and in the chart-and-symbol method. There are keys to the charts in English, French, and German, lavish and helpful illustrations, and sound practical advice on knitting techniques, finishing, and laundering. There are also instructions on altering the patterns to your own special needs. Perfect for the beginning lace knitter or the advanced professional, Marianne Kinzel's lace patterns make well-suited gifts and items for around the home.
