Anniken was brought up in Norway and learnt to knit from her mum. She takes everything she has learnt and brings it together to bring you an amazing array of beautiful designs. Lace knitting is her favorite knitting technique and this shows in her beautiful designs. Don't be mistaken and think that this book is just going to be filled with beautiful shawls. The book is packed full of many different projects including waistcoats to finger-less gloves. The book starts by teaching you all the techniques you will need to make lace, beading knitting to be easier for you.

Don't worry if you don't like beads of your projects they are designed to be made with or without beads. The projects are at different levels so any knitter can have a go of making some of the projects. The patterns are in written format and charts. At the start of the project you are given details of the sizing, what yarn, needles and other materials required as well as the gauge. You are also given the level of knitter required and notes to help you with the particular pattern.

With all the techniques detailed in written instructions and clear pictures you will find it easier to make each pattern. I love the delicate nature of lace knitting. Anniken has a real talent for designing

beaded lace patterns. If you have ever wanted to or really love beaded lace knitting then this book would be fantastic for you. It's an amazing amount of projects in one book!

Knitter, The

August 2015

This new book displays Anniken Allis's supreme talent for stunning lace. There are 25 designs here separated according to skill level most are suitable for intermediate or advanced lace knitters. All are charted, but the charts are very large and clear. Photo tutorials explain a range of techniques, such as provisional invisible and circular cast-ons, adding beads and the Russian sewn cast-offs. The range of projects includes triangular and cresent shawls, as you'd expect along with retangular wraps and circular half-circle and square shawls. There is a beautifully draping waistcoat, a bolero, cowls and mitts. 'Janey' is a lovely cardigan with beaded lace panels along the front openings and a wide lace panel up the centre back, while 'Helena' is a spectacular Pi shawl with a knitted-on beaded edging. A selection of pattern s have lace worked on both right-and wrong-side rows. It's hard to pick favourite designs from this book, as all of them are genuinely stunning and will delight lace fans.
