Wrapped in Lace by Margaret Stove
Start your own tradition of heirloom lace – the patterns include Margaret Stove’s wedding ring shawls – legendary large knitted lace shawls so fine and delicate that each can be drawn through a wedding ring. Knit your own perfect gift of a shawl for a bride-to-be which in turn can be used to swaddle her future babies.
There are in-depth descriptions of each set of lace techniques, patterns, and traditions. The book includes 11 original patterns for lace shawls, stoles, and scarves. Travel around the world and discover techniques from the Faroe Islands, Shetland Islands, Orenburg, Estonia and other destinations.
Margaret’s section on lace repair and conservation shows how to preserve and repair by grafting lace invisibly.
