The patterns inside this book are varied and many. They can have you, your family and friends covered from head to toe in lace. From delicate shawls to thick warm socks, you will be busy kitting some lovely lace items for quite a long time. A great stash buster for all your yarn. This is not only for lace weight. 

There are plenty of beginner patterns, such as the Etta Hat. Knit with worsted weight on size 6 needles in the round and an easy to follow lace pattern, this is a great one to start with. There is no chart for this one, but are for the more complicated patterns. The glossary has abbreviations explained and techniques  for different cast-ons, increases and bind offs described.

I am currently knitting the Wavelet Hair Tie. The pattern and chart are both easy to follow and it seems to be knitting up nicely. Lace weight yarn on size 7 needles makes for a lovely open lace. It should look nice after blocking. My yarn isn't as fine as in the photo, so probably not going to be as lacy.

Lace One-Skein Wonders was published today, so go get yourself a copy! 

Happy Knitting!
