You don't need to be an expert to begin to knit lace!. What is especially attractive about Marianne 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. Kinzel, well known to knitters in the United Kingdom and United States, has long been looked to for her gift for clear presentation and even more so for her ability in devising original designs.
The First Book of Modern Lace Knitting 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 technique. Over 25 distinctive lace projects are presented, including luncheon sets, tray and table cloths, curtains,cushion covers, chair backs and doilies. Instructions are given both in written and charted forms. Helpful illustrations and sound practical advice on knitting techniques, pattern adaptation, finishing, laundering round out this vintage classic.
