Some patterns are definitely dated in their look, and a few are absolutely stunning: overall very much worth it. Most have variations on their patterns so that you could easily choose to make a smaller or larger or differently shaped item (like the table covers/doilies) - mostly calls for #50-#60 crochet thread, has written instructions as well as charts. A very fun book to have on hand

Format: Paperback
This one is nicer than the First Book of Modern Lace Knitting.

The thistle design itself is worth the price of the book. Of course this is a book that was edited before diagrams became common place and also Dover is not the company with the highest production values, so don't expect a great deal of information on lace knitting. The book assumes you know what you're doing by now.

Still it's a classic and because it is so cheap and on the verge of being impossible to find, a self respecting lace knitter ought to snatch it up, even if only to sit on the shelf for later.

HASH(0x9ee57984) out of 5 stars Beautiful Lace Patterns March 24 2000
By A Customer - Published on Amazon.com
Format: Paperback
This book has some of the most beautiful lace patterns you will find (the 'Rose of England' design is exquisite). The written instructions and charts included for each pattern are clear and easy to follow. Because the patterns are quite intricate, this book may not be suitable for the novice, but for the experienced lace knitter it is a must.

HASH(0xa7dd4278) out of 5 stars Classic lace patterns for tablecloths or shawls Aug. 6 2005
By Shelly T. - Published on Amazon.com
Format: Paperback Verified Purchase
This second book of Modern Lace Knitting is great for the experienced lace knitter. I found the patterns in her first book more appealing and pretty, however these patterns are also excellent. The lace patterns are classic and are written for tablecloths and runners, however they work up very well in lace yarn for shawls or ponchos with few modifications. If you are not experienced with lace I would recommend Lavish Lace by Noble and Potter.

HASH(0x9edbc954) out of 5 stars The most beautiful lace knitting you'll ever see March 4 2001
By Joanna Daneman - Published on Amazon.com
Format: Paperback
These patterns are collected from vintage knitting from over the years, and they are the best of the best. This book has a Rose pattern that looks great knitting up in wool yarn for a shawl, as well as in thinner cotton for a table cloth. This book isn't really suitable for a beginner; if you are new to lace knitting, I recommend Martha Waterman's book first, then move on to this one.
These lace patterns make great baby christening blankets for an important gift, or a wedding shawl.
If you make a tablecloth, you can take a simple cardboard decorators table, drape it with a plain round of colored or neutral polished cotton and then put a handknitted tablecloth on it and have an accent piece that is incredibly beautiful (a decorator table has a cross-base and round top made of particle board or cardboard. You can put a glass round on top, but it isn't necessary. They are very inexpensive.) This is especially nice if you have Victorian or country decor.

HASH(0x9eee8e4c) out of 5 stars Exquisite lace knitting July 1 2005
By Gillian Buchanan - Published on Amazon.com
Format: Paperback
This book is a continuation of "First Book of Modern Lace Knitting" and if anything the designs are even more exquisite than they were in the first book. Neither is for the beginner but any lace knitter will enjoy the book which has the most wonderful all lace tablecloths and household linen.

The book is a joy to look at and read and the instructions are clear and well presented.

HASH(0x9edbcae0) out of 5 stars Error-free charts!!! Dec 22 2008
By Sandeleh Francis - Published on Amazon.com
Format: Paperback Verified Purchase
This Dover re-publication of Kinsel's 2nd book is an exceptional value. the charts are all error-free and the photos are large and detailed. The symbols may be a bit unfamiliar, but it is well worth the time needed to learn the new ones, or to rechart the entire pattern. The last two patterns in this book, "Balmoral" and "Rose of England," are classics and so easy to knit up.
