Shetland lace shawls have long been the epitome of knitted elegance. Impossibly light and delicate, they are surprisingly easy to knit. This follow-up to Elizabeth Lovick's The Magic of Shetland Lace Knitting features full and complete patterns for 15 shawls that range from mini-wraps for beginners right up to a light-as-air wedding stole. Clear instructions for all the techniques needed to knit the shawls means that even beginners can achieve delightful results. And more advanced knitters can learn how to use basic patterns to create their own designs.

The core techniques section gives you the technical knowledge you need to knit the projects, including techniques specific to using thin yarns and dealing with filmy pieces. The design section will help you to understand how stitches go together, and give you confidence to change stitches should you wish to. The projects, the main part of the book, give a selection of stoles, capes, and shawls in the Shetland tradition, with suggestions for alternative stitches and uses for the pieces. Magical Shetland Lace Shawls to Knit will quickly become an essential addition to your knitting library.
