The Magic of Shetland Lace Knitting

by Elizabeth Lovick


Stitches, techniques, and projects for lighter-than-air shawls and more. The ethereal beauty and intricacy of Shetland lace knitting might at first seem beyond the powers of the everyday knitter, but the skills needed are within the reach of everyone who can knit and purl, cast on, and bind off. The Magic of Shetland Lace is designed to take the novice knitter from their first “yarn over” step-by-step through to complex every-row lace knitting.

Organized by stitch and row count, the techniques are introduced with clear step-by-step instructions, charts, and detailed photographs of knitted samples. The book presents all the essential skills you will need to master a wealth of traditional Shetland motifs, patterns, and insertions, including Cat’s Paw, Candlelight, Horse Shoe, and many more. Includes suggestions for how to work different stitches into elegant and traditional Shetland Lace accessories such as scarves, hats, and shawls.
